While I was waiting I went into windows2000 and uninstalled programs from the start meau that had the option to do that.
I found a post about missing files. This is one part it said and I tyied it.
Open windows Task Manager Press Ctrl+Shift+ESC and click the Processes tab. (I did this in windows 2000)
In the list of running programs select Exployer.Exe and right click Exployer.Exe and click End Process which I did.
After uninstalling I like to do a restart which is needed. When I went off line AOL did an update and restarted. Upon restarting F8 screen appeared showing only windows default not windowsxp or windows2000. It went right into windos 2000.
I thought I had done a full setup but quess I was wrong. I restated with xp cd in and setup started again. I now have only xp on this computer no more windows 2000.
I don't want to become an expert but knowledge is good. Proof you can teach an old dog new tricks.
Thanks everybody for help. I will visit again not jus when I need help but to say hi and maybe help someone else. barbarabigsandy
