I've just install Win 2000 pro, logged on as Administrator..

I find the the START -> PROGRAMS - 'ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS' is missing??

How can I get this back, so the standard tools are displayed?

Also, where is the default user profile kept? I can't see in in \document & settings\default user. I recall with NT 4 it was in \winnt\profiles\default user.

Administrative tools is now under the control panel and default profile is hidden by default. You will need to select the unhide options available at my computer, tools, folder options, view tab, show hidden files and folders. Go back to documents and settings and defualt user is there

Depending on which tools you want to use you can access most of them by right clicking on my computer and choose manage from the menu.
This will take you into the computer mgmt screen and gives you most of those options.
