    During the week, we had a power outage...
    Network went flop

    Ever since then a Win2K Pro now always disconnected from teh network... After about 5 minutes a message pops up stating, you are no longer connected to <server name> in the taskbar. It's the Sync. Manager. At first boot, DHCP gives the IP and what not but then 5 mins later I get that message. Never used Offline files before. Packets still get passed but...puter goes to offline mode.

    Now (actually this is someone else's puter having the problem and now I'm lookin' like a duface), I can enable and disable the using of offline files on my machine (tools>options>offline files) however, on this particular machine, that tab is not there.


    Machine as stated is Win2K Pro SP2 FAT32 (not my doing).
    I upgraded to SP3...tab did not show
    During the 5 minutes of good network time, downloaded and installed all available critical updates (win update)... tab did not show.

    What else can I do to rectify this (without re-imaging the system)??


    Thanks All
