Kace Agent Issue : Windows 7 explorer.exe startup
During deployment across about 160 machines we encountered a rather odd error.
The deployment itself went well, however after we logged on to the machines one of the two following scenarios would occur:
1. If a local account such as the local administrator logged on then windows would load pretty much infinite amount of explorer.exe processes until the machine ran out of memory and still kept on trying to open more explorer windows, around 5-20 a second.
2. If a domain account would log on the same thing as above would happen however at a much slower pace, around 1 explorer window every 10-20 seconds.
Now this didn't happen before we actually deployed the K1000 agent onto the machines.
After remotely uninstalling the agent on the machines we were able to log on without encountering an infinite amount of explorer windows.
Using a domain user account that only showed the window once every 20 sec I managed to uninstall the K1000 agent manually and as soon as the services stopped and the agent dissappeared so did the explorer.exe stop showing up every 20 seconds.
Could this be related to the K1000 agent? Or perhaps any other setting we have on the machines?
This has only happened on computers in a specific VLAN which I doubt is the actual issue.
