    Creating a file server properly.

    If you are running an EsXi host (on domain with static ip) and get in via vsphere, and create a new VM and make the server, a file server by adding the role. How do you make it so that all domain users can see the share drive when they click "computer"?

    Start Menu not working! Just showing error!!!

    do you have a third party start menu installed? Have you rebooted or restarted explorer in task manager? Mine goes dead from time to time (never a blank image) and a restart of explorer does the trick. If not, reboot.

    Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP, wifi still works?

    When you are only connected to ethernet, can you ping 8.8.8.8 or google.com? Can you try and report back? I also think following the above instructions is a good idea as well.
