I have a small network (server running  2000 server). I have five other PC's on the network.

Recently I have been getting errors when trying to update my version of server 2000 (hexdecimal error). But as yesterday, I have been unable to access the server from any of the PC's on the network. I did find a virus on the server and removed it.  The server serves as a file server. I can access the internet on the server, but none of the PC's can access the server via the network.  The Symantec A/V has been updated and the Harddrive scans clean after removing the virus.

What virus did you have?

Some viri will change many registry settings that Symantec won;t touch since it never knew what reg keys it touched.

Go to Symantec's site, look up that virus and find out everything you can about what reg keys it may touch.
