First try a reboot and if that does not work reapply SP4.

If you can reboot into safe mode, see if you can run cmd.
Do not remember whether sfc /scannow was an option on win2k.
Check system for virus/malware.

Go to Start - Run - Regedit, Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Svchost. assign Full Access to administrator & Users.

A few things to check:
 - malware
 - chkdsk your drive
 - check RAM
 - sfc (yes it's in 2000)

That error is a incompatibilty error.

Did this happen after you updated? If so trying rolling back to the previous state or getting a new copy of cmd.exe from another win2000 operating system or copy a WinXP cmd.exe over to the server. Make sure you copy it over using a administrator account into your system32 folder.
