Windows Server 2008 problems


  • We are developing an Access 2010 database that is to be served using MS Server. Currently we have Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard SP1 64bit with Server Manager Version: 6.1.7601.17514 SP1 on a cumputer with 8GB RAM and an Intel Celeron G550 2.6GHz processor. All software is up to date with MS updates.

    We are having a problem with dropdown lists that have too many items to show in the drop-down window so there is a scroll bar. If I click on the down arrow and open the drop down list, and then click on the scroll bar, the access window locks up. If I only click on a choice in the drop-down, but not the scroll bar, it works fine and does not lock up. Once access is locked up, I can click on another window on the desktop and then Access becomes active again. 
    This does not happen on windows 7.

     I have now observed freezing while copying files using Explorer, and unusual slowness or freezing in IE. A complete shutdown-restart has not eliminated these problems.

    I am also getting  the following error when navigating windows:

    Internet Explorer has encountered a validation error

    process name: iexplorer.exe

    Module name: mshtml.dll

    Assert offset: 00C8769B

    Could the choice of CPU be the cause of all this?

    -Thank you,
