However, they recommend retrieving the fastfat.sys from the uninstall directory and copping it over the copy in %systemroot%\system32\dllcache and %systemroot%\system32\drivers.
This seems to have worked in my organization.

Fix has yet to be published.

here is the MS page:
And the solution that worked for me was:
"Copy the Fastfat.sys file from the $NtUpdateRollupPackUninstall$ Update Rollup backup directory to the %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers directory."

However I am puzzled by them - they do not seem complete.
I am not technical and need simple words of instruction, in glorious technicolour detail.
Can anyone help or should I just wait for microsoft to send their next "fix" out?

Thanks a lot for the info, I knew the update caused the problem, but was to dense to think to remove the update.

Anyway, thanks to this posting, I removed that wonderful rollup for W2K and all is working well now. Thanks to all who posted to this thread.
Now I wonder when dear old Mircosoft is going to release that hotfix

Also - I recommend only replacing the fastfat.sys file from the rollback - it's really quite simple, and the update might actually have some good in other parts, so you don't want to loose those potentially positive aspects of the update.
So, basically, I'd document it locally somewhere as well, make sure all tech's know about it, and make sure all users report the bahviour immediately.

Download link is here: Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 - v2
We're going to test it at work here first before we deploy it again. Nice to see Microsoft actually "testing" something before releasing it...

PoitNarf - The script for uninstallation was especially helpful since I need to remove this update from a couple thousand computers across our organization. I tried it out and it works beautifully, only one problem though that I'm hoping you (or anyone) can help me with. The script will only run the uninstall routine when the computer is logged in as a user with admin rights on the system. Most of our end users don't have admin rights so you can see my problem. I'm not much of a scripter so I was wondering if anyone knows what I can add to that script to make it run the uninstall as another user with elevated priviledges.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
