I have Win server 2000 service pack 1  and today I notice that i cannot copy and past. I cannot move desktop icons. All icons in Control Panel is lined on left and Add/Remove programs does not show up. ...empty with one line of text on top "Change or Remove programs Add new programs Add/Remove new components". Latly, i  wanted to install Add-on component - SMTP servece(IIS) from intallation disk. I supected that  messing around with it caused the problems, but after reinstlling all of IIS components, it did not solve the problem.
Any ideas?

I saw this on about 30 of our computers a couple weeks ago.  they all came at about the same time.
We maintain a standard image for all of our computers and it was easier to run the imaging over again.

I am assuming it was due to a virus.
try housecall.trendmicro.com for a free online virus scan if you do not have one.

ensure that the virus scanner you are using is updated to very latest definitions.
good luck
