I found This thread on your board while doing a google search. Im having the same problem, I had Windows 2000 sp1 installed and decided to update to sp4. I choose the no back up option. A ways through the installation I get the same error as he did but I haven't closed the window yet. I need some help figureing out where to get the wbemtest.exe file or how to fix this. Thanks

I just found this site:
http://www.computerp...ezine/tools.htm
There is a copy of the wbemtest.exe on there. Do you think If I download that file and tell win2000 to use it, the installation will be fine?

I got a Windows 2000 Pro disk from a friend but before I do a System recovery do you think I will need a cd-key? Is there a way to get my cd-key from using dos or a linux live cd? Thanks... if your actually reading this...:-(

Hi Mr Smiley...

Try running sfc /scannow or chkdsk /r from Recovery Console.
