    I have been told that System Restore does , in fact, exist
    in Windows 2000. All my Microsoft literature does not
    mention this. In fact, all I see is Me and Xp and 2003
    that have it. However, the person who told me this also
    told me that the proof is in a folder that Windows 2000
    has called Restore. Can anyone tell me if this is true or
    is he mistaken?

    There is no System Restore in Windows 2000. Antivirus software can create a folder called RESTORE (System Restore's folder is
    _RESTORE). But if you don't believe have a look. Type System resore in the Help Index. WinME is a newer operating system than
    Windows 2000 and XP is a kind of a hybrid of 2000 and ME.

    He is mistaken.
    There is NO system restore in Windows 2000.
    ME, XP and 2003 all came out after 2000.

  4. 2003 doesn't have System Restore either, though there are hacks out to make
    it install, it probably violates a license or two

    Nope
    Try booting with F10 just as Starting bar begins on startup and you have
    several choices.
    Start computer in Safe Mode, last known good configuration, debug mode, etc.
    Read a little in the help files about those.
    Also recommend you make an ERD and a full backup with system state to back
    up your registry.

    Furthermore, there is no folder names "Restore" in a standard Win2K
    installation.
