    Gayle, with the messages you were getting in your previous post and the registry errors you have now there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that you have corrupted system files.

    The best thing you can do if you want to get the system completely straightened out is to save all your personal data to removable media, zero fill the hard drive and do a fresh installation of Win2KPro.

    I have run Win2KPro since it was released and I can guarantee you the problems you have will not fix themselves. :)
