Hi,

I had to make some changes to my registry due to a spyware and now it looks like I made a change which would not let me connect to the internet.

Does any one know how to restore my resgistry to a previous point in Windows 2000?

I know how to do that in XP ,however I am not sure if 2000 has that option.

My OS is windows 2000 professional.

Thanks,
Mark.

if you dont know what a backup is then i doubt that you do backups.... its not something that is done automatically.  By backup i mean backup to a tape drive or something similar.
