"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Also try going inside using bootdisk (www.bootdisk.com) or safe mode

Also check for MS blaster worm

Does safe mode work?

Do you get to the 2000 splash screen/login prompt?

Is it a new machine or just started happening?  Anything upgraded/installed before problems arose?

Does Last Known Good Configuration work?

A bit more detail is needed unless you do an inplace upgrade as sunray says.  We may be able to fix your current version without having to do that if you provide more info.

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

If you get it started try the system file checker - you need to have your Win2K cd in.
start>run
sfc /scannow
this will check for any corrupt system files.

Please help.

Extra info.
I all so have found the mblaster worm and removed it, The problem started after that.
I tried a repair this worked for a day, now the problem has come back again.

Rob StoneCommented:
Make sure you have the latest windows updates and then clean the machine.
Go to www.symantec.com and run the online virus check.

If its clean, run sfc /scannow.
