...or go to your control panels add/remove programs and double click on Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 and Internet Tools > choose Repair IE.

Hi Trevuren:

Tried the command with no success.

I got to the to the add/remove window but it was not populated.

Also when I open the control panel, the window came up in a split-type screen.

:tazz:

Thanks for all your help and sorry this is so complicated.

I do not have the knowledge to help with this unfortunately. The only answer I had left was reformat/reinstall which I don't want to recommend wothout you having a chance to talk to the technical side of our forum.

I have referred your case to the technical forum who should be contacting you within a couple of days.

Please keep me informed of your progress.

Trevuren:

Thanks for your help in this matter. I appreciate everything mthat you tried to do to help. I did make some progress through this matter and learned of some great tools. Before you go could you tell me if there is anyway I could have infected another 2000 system by plugging in my jumpdrive which has been in the problem system (I have also used it in XP systems but none of them have any problems). I have run norton antivirus on the jump drive and it says that it is not infected with anything. The other system is showing some of the same problems (after i got rid of the black screen on the problem computer) ie can't do click and drag, no populated add/remove programs, etc. Just wondering...I am in the progress of running norton on that drive. If you have any insight, please share them with me. If not I thank you for your help again.

You may have infected the other Win 2K system because they have similar vulnerabilities.

It may also have something to do with how you cleaned the systems. You can do certain things with XP and get away with it but do that with 2k and you may be in trouble.

Food for thought.

Note: Eventhough even our site promote the DIY method, you are always running a big chance if you are not formally trained to do this work.

God luck with the techs, please keep me informed.

I will close the thread. If the techs want it reopened, ask them to contact me.

"Also when I open the control panel, the window came up in a split-type screen." is there any way you could do a print screen of this? also could you get a screen shot of your event log (all tabs)

I finally got disgusted and did a win 2000 overwrite. I did not lose any of my files and many of my programs still functioned (really cool). I thank everyone for their help. I guess i will close this thread.

Thanks again
