Adding System Restore to Windows 2000

Guest

I am trying to add "System Restore" to my Windows 2000 Pro Pc
and I almost have it licked, except that I can't add the new
version of the "advapi32.dll" file in the System 32 path as no
matter what I do, a message comes up that the file is currently
being used by windows, so it can't be replaced, re-named, etc.

This happens even in safe mode. Can you tell me how to get this
dll file replaced (do I have to do it via DOS, and if so, how is
this done?)

Please steer me in the right direction,

Have you tried using the Recovery Console?
