I have a domain run by a Windows Server 2008 R2 with Active Directory. I have a program on the server which I created a mapped drive to on each of the client computers. All client computers are running Windows 7.
Recently, one particular computer will no longer run .exe's off of the mapped drive. I have tried things like using a command prompt as administrator to delete and then remake the drive, I have no group policies relating to this. Only this computer will not run the .exe's, all others will. As of yet, I've not found any differences.
The computer gives a "file not found" error when attempting to run applications from the network drive. It will run any other type of file. I can even copy and paste the .exe files to and from the client computer. It does attempt to run the file when I copy it onto the desktop, thought of course it can't without the accompanying files. I definitely do not want to run it locally from this computer and on the network for the others.
I have tried making the .exe's a "medium risk" file, but that didn't help.
I'm very new to networking, and I somewhat had this network thrust upon me, but I'm now the only one maintaining it. Does anyone have any ideas what could be going on? I've looked at many articles, but most didn't apply to my situation. Any questions are welcome as well, as I'm not even sure what questions I should be asking.
Thank you very much for any help.
I can run files just fine in safe mode. That must mean there's a process blocking the applications from running in normal mode. I'm trying to track something down that's running in normal mode but not in safe mode with networking.
