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

OR, right-click a blank spot on the task bar and select properties, click advanced tab,in the menu are4a at bottom of window, check the box that says "Display Administrative Tools"...apply and OK it, make sure the Adminitsrative Tools Folder is located on the start menu now.

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.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

The DELETE button is removed for now, since the functionality was never really well implemented. If you want to remove a duplicate please post a 0 points question in Community Support http://www.experts-exchange.com/commspt/ .
