There can be multiple causes. Try the following in the given order:

1. MS Project 2000 has known issues with Adobe . If you have it installed, try uninstalling Adobe, restart and see if the problem is removed.

2. Microsoft Project 2000 SR-1 provides the latest updates to Microsoft Project 2000. It is recommended that you install this update for Microsoft Project 2000. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=24d1df9a-ee62-4b8a-8aa6-af313d0d515d&DisplayLang=en
