Computer accidentally reset to factory settings any way to recover?

While installing MSN 8 for his computer my father in law
accidentally reset his computer to factory settings, I
know that in WindowsXp there is a sytem restore function
that can be activated by restarting the computer in safe
mode. Does Windows2000 have this ability?? Any input
would be appreciated.

Thank you

Difficult to know what this means. You didn't tell us any details of the
problem. There is no means in Windows 2000 to "reset his computer to factory
settings" If you're talking about the pc bios, then you'll need to check
your mb or pc manual for the correct settings based on the hardware
installed. Also there is no system restore in Windows 2000

Just guessing that maybe the dial-up networking got set back to
factory settings... If so I don't see a problem as long as it connects.

Choosing last known good boots the system with the control set that last
successfully booted your system. Control sets contain system configuration
information such as device drivers and services.
