    if the system is ok it is just a matter of your applications being compatible with 2000,in xp a box usually pops pops up saying if you have any that you might have problems with when you do the upgrade and you may have to reinstall these,some you may have to d/l the 2000 version of them

    Did you do a clean install of win2k? If so there should be no problem. Upgrades from win9x to nt based os do not generally work well. I do not think me will allow an upgrade to win2k; it shows an error when trying to upgrade.

    As long as everything is working, then you should be fine. Win2k is a much better os than any win9x system. Make sure you have at least service pack 3 installed along with patches and updates.
