  • Thank you Elytis!

    I've followed this steps but still not working.

    There some differences on the error description, according to microsoft KB's all ID's got the same message when the problem is the server and when only 1 ID have the problem they can't access any folder.

    In my case I can access anything, except that folder while all other users don't have any problem accessing it.

  • Hi Voldar!

    I've removed a lot of groups(At least 26), and could access the folder. I don't know what can cause that once the

    token size was (Token size: 554) and the maximun .(Token size: 1600)....I noticed that some groups deleted had a huge "tree" of groups inside it, I believe this could cause the bug.

    Thank you for your help, really appreciate it!!

  • What are you trying to do on the Windows 2003 server when the message pops up ? Copy something ?

    " Never panic before reboot ! "

  •  Just open the folder! It's weird because if is related to the Server I believe other users should have the same problem.

    But, anyone can access except 1 ID! Thanks for your answer! ;D

  • Have you tried the www.eventid.net ? Put the ID of your event and see what others say about it. Usually there are solutions backed up by Microsoft with KB.

  • Hi Gustavo,

    I have a question for you: does the server you want to connect uses an alias or not ? Is this happening only to you or to multiple users ? Have your tried to delete your profile from the server (registry included) ? I don't know what more should you do, because it seems you checked everything in the Microsoft knowledge base without any succes.

    Hi, Gustavo. Token bloating starts at about 80 groups if size is "default".

    NO THEY ARE NOT EVIL, if you know what you are doing: Good or bad GPOs?

  • Hi, if it is windows 2003 then  I would suggest you to run performance monitor and set counter meomory\free system page table entries. and then change the perfmin viw from line graph to report. Now see what is the count of PTE if it is less the 10000 then you need to  available PTE check boot.ini if /3GB switch is there if yes then try to remove it. If it really required then add USERVA=xxxx switch (xxxx=3030-2800) for detail to how to use 3GB and USERVA switch please read KB ariticle http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?id=316739 . If PTE count is less then 10000 then its case of PTE depletion and in the case of PTE depelation it is common to see insufficient resources, event ids 333, 2019 and 2020 and error popup "Application popup: anyapp.exe - Application Error : The application failed to initialize properly (0xXXXXXXXX). Click on OK to terminate the application."
