    I just installed Windows 2000, I cannot get links to work, the Microsoft updates will not load. I am not running any Spyware at the monment. Some sites will open but not display the page. It also tells me that I don,t have permission to use things like System info, Device manager and so on.

    Sounds like you are logged in as "user". Try logging in as the administrator and/or give yourself administrative privileges and you should be set.
