Try the System File Checker for starters to check for corrupt system files , put your Win2k CD in your CD-ROM and ..
Start>Run
sfc /scannow

If you dont get any results from that I would try the repair option on the Win2k CD.

If that fails then it sounds like a re-install of Win2k is needed :(

Hate to ask the obvious question, but is this a trial version of Win2K?
