My windows shutdown will restart itself automatically everytime I shut down the PC. Another query is, how can I have 2 network settings in windows 2000. This is because I'm travelling to 2 diferent company every now and then. I had to change my network settings i.e DNS, IP, Proxy accordingly to the company that I'm in.

First question: Go to your registry and find HKLM -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows NT -> CurrentVersion -> Winlogon and make sure PowerdownAFterShutdown is set to "1"

Second question: 2 network settings = 2 NICS. You can get a PCMCIA card or a usb network adapter so that you can plug into your ethernet port at one site and your PCMCIA card (or usb adapter) at the other site.

Run a RAM memory test  www.memtest86.com or www.simmtester.com

Or,

----
Run SFC /SCANNOW to see if any windows protected files have been overwritten

If you want to connect to two different networks, but use your same HW, try a program like MultiNetwork Manager from Globesoft:

Is there a freeware that work similarly to Multinetwork Manager? Or is there any other solutions? I've tried using the System Restore in Win XP to revert back and forth to the network settings that I want, but it's not available in Win 2000.
