    When trying to open Add/Remove Programs, keep getting the message "an unexpected error occurred. Object doesn't support property or method. res://sp3res.dll/default.hta. Line:82
    Problem just appeared 12/24/03 after I fixed a .url short cut problem, but I don't see any relationship.:confused:

    pop your win2k disk in and restart your pc. run the cd on bootup and try repairing your OS......that may work.

    But before you try to repair it do this:

    Click Start, and then click Shut Down.
    Click Restart, and then click OK.
    When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press F8.
    Use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.
    NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function.

    Use the arrow keys to highlight an operating system, and then press ENTER.
