<_< Help! I was given a used computer that used to be used in an office on a network. It is now used as a stand alone computer for my personal use. My profile works (I have administrative profile) without problems but when I try to set up a new user profile for other family members I get an error 1706. The windows installer will not install Windows 2000 SR-1 premium under the new user profile. How can I fix this? Would I be better off wiping out the computer and reinstalling Windows XP and Microsoft 2000? Or can I fix this problem without having to start over? How do I wipe out computer and start over if I need to? Can I change the setup to stand alone and not part of a network? Do I need to get a computer professional to reconfigure my computer? Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!

Hi queencastle1969, welcome <_<

Would I be better off wiping out the computer and reinstalling Windows XP and Microsoft 2000?

That's what I'd recommend.

How do I wipe out computer and start over if I need to?
