Hi there. I’m hoping someone here can help me.

I work from my home and I think I may have accidentally removed a program that allows me to log onto my network. I can't even get to my start menu so the regular route for a system restore isn't gonna work *sob*.

I’m trying to figure out a way to reboot my computer (windows 2000) to a date where I know everything worked ok (like 09/05/04).

I know at one point in time I had done this with my home PC.

If memory serves me correctly I hit one of the F keys during boot up and it took me to a screen where I could enter in a date to restart the computer by. I can’t seem to figure out how I got there though. Does anyone know what to do? :confused:

Thanks a bunch!!!!

Ok - I tried that and it doesn't seem to help. I suppose it's because the actually configuration is still ok. Is there anyway to enter in a date?

I know that XP has a system restore feature but this was not available for 2000. Unfortunately unless you have a back-up of the machine with the configuration you want I think it is gone.
