    When I boot my system, I get an error over the
    win2k desktop that says some system files have been replaced by an unrecognized replacement and that they need to be replaced by loading the
    original files from the original win2k disk
    but it never seems to be able read the disk after I load it. Also, some very strange things have been happening on my system recently. On bootup today it checked my hard drives and deleted a bunch of files, not sure which ones, but it looked like they had to do with Norton Anti-virus.
    Add/remove programs does work.
    Also, I can't boot from my win2k startup disks!

    I was at a strange website recently and dowloaded
    a file. Could I have a virus?
    Norton Anti-virus says I'm clean.
    Any help would be appreciated
