When I boot this Windows 2000 machine into normal mode it crashes with a "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" win32k.sys BSOD associated with the 3Com 905C ethernet card.  I disable the card and everything works.  To fix this error I was planning to install SP4.  The machine currently doesn't have any service packs.  I've copied the Network Install of SP4 onto the machine and when I try to run it I recieve "Setup could not verify the integrety of update.inf.  Make sure the cryptography service is running on this computer."  So I go to Services and presto, no Cryptography!  The service is not in the list so I can't start/stop it.  

The user when on a "cleaning" spree when inappropriate images popuped.  Help!

erm.... Not too sure, but quickly do the following, just to verify your system files:

Open the Start menu  ->  select "Run..."  ->  type "sfc /scannow"  ->  hit "ok"

Here's my new status.. I got sp4 to install by copying over some .cat's from the cd and re-regsvr32'ing some dlls.  Now the network adapter causes a BSOD when enables.  Page fault in unpaged area.  any ideas??
