    does win2k have system restore utility.....?Also Windows should auto have at least a few registry backups you can go back to. You can do this in DOS using a scanreg type command/ or from the Start/Run prompt too.... I'm not an expert, so i'll leave it to you to ask the professionals precisely how that's done-it is easy though.
