The probable problems are:

a.       Windows somehow got damaged. You need to reinstall the Windows 2000 again.

b.      There may be a Bad Sector in your hard drive.

c.       There is also the possibility of Virus attack.

My suggestions are:

a.       Install a Fresh Windows 2000 XP. If there is no 2000 available then install Windows XP.

b.      Repair the Bad sector of Hard disk. If it is un-repairable then replace the Hard disk.

c.       After a Fresh Windows is installed, install an Antivirus (with internet security option) and scan the whole PC. Do not use any backup software to install (i.e. motherboard driver, downloader software, which is copied in the hard disk). Install these softwares from CD copy. This way there will less chance of virus attack from previous HDD-software-collection.

Try using the System File Checker utility. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the Run dialog then type without quotes “cmd” then hit Enter. In the command prompt window, type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then hit Enter. When you are prompted to insert the Windows setup CD or DVD, insert the disc on your optical drive and continue.

This may take awhile to finish so just wait. When it is finished, close the command prompt and restart the computer. See if this works. The System File Checker tool checks your computer’s protected system files for incorrect versions and replaces them with correct ones. Incorrect versions may also mean corrupt files and this can cause problems to your system.

If this doesn’t work, try downloading Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 Update Rollup and update your operating system. This is the latest and last Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows 2000 which was supposedly Service Pack 5 but was later cancelled by Microsoft and instead released as an Update Rollup 1 for Service Pack 4. See if this works.
