Ok I hope someone can help.

Yesterday all of a sudden no the network slowed down and no one could get out to the internet.

I think the problem is on our Windows 2000 Workstation keep broadcasting out.  I see that there is a service running called system management process and it is called server.fcc in the registry.  I also see it in the registry under all the run, runonce, etc...

If I get rid of it in the registry and reboot the machines work fine for about 10 minutes and then it comes back and the network slow down again.  

I hope I explained it ok.  Very tired.  HELP!!!
