install msconfig from here
http://www.techadvice.com/win2000/m/msconfig_w2k.htm

Start --> run --> Type in "msconfig" and press "Enter"
goto Startup tab
Disable all the applications there.Reboot the machine and check if the error occurs

Hi!
Took a look at your HJT log.
I looked for info. on kqpbih.exe and found nothing.
That's not a good sign.

Also, not sure about this one:
C:\WINNT\System32\svcc.exe

This one, on the other hand, is a sign of a problem:
C:\WINNT\System\services.exe
Note, this is not the same as the previous entry: C:\WINNT\system32\services.exe, which is a Windows Service.
I would do an online virus scan:

Let us know.
Good luck!

By the way, I would suggest to your friend, that they update Win 2000 and Internet Explorer.

Hi!

Glad we could help!

However, I would wait a day or two and then post a new HijackThis log.
Quite often with these things, after you attempt to deal with them, at first it appears that you've been successful - then
something comes back.
Thanks and good luck!
