My WIN2K Has Become Flakey
Posted on 2004-03-26
WIN2K is not acting in a normal fashion. In I.E. any www typed in to the address window or in the File, Open box freezes I.E. Access to the "Home Page" through the shortcut is quite normal. Can get to www's through Favorites works but is slow. I have the Google tool bar and if I type in search for the www I want it works and I can get there.
Windows explorer doesn't work right. It's horribly slow.
My scheduled Norton Anti-virus scan worked as scheduled this morning, but it took 2x longer.
Now I just tried the Emergency Repair thing, the quick version. No help.
I started in to reinstall WIN2K but it would only do a "Clean Install" as my CD in only good to Service Pack 3 and my WIN2K is pretty much up to date with Service Pack 4. I see in Control Panel Add/Remove Programs I could uninstall Service Pack 4. I thought about Reinstalling just certain Windows components. Like I.E. but that confuses me in regards to the check marks. So if I were to just reinstall I.E. should I uncheck everything else ?
So I've been rambling on here. In a nutshell what do I do to get this WIN2K running correctly again ?
