    Windows 2000 doesn't have system restore. You should have some HP recovery disks that came with the computer and will restore everything to how it originally was.

    im sure windows 200 doe have system restore.
    at least windows ME does so 2000 should.
    try right clicking on my computer and selecting properties and then one of the tabs has something like performance tab then it should be under that.
    or it could be a system restore tab just there.

    2k was released prior to ME and targeted primarily at business. Have run 2k on my PC for several years. If sys. restore is included it is news to me.

    I agree Win2k is probably (one of) the best OS`s MS ever released. Having said that, it dose lack in eye candy that the "average" user seems to care so much about. As far as ME, many, including myself, feel it was released only to fill the void between Win98 and XP. Just something to fill the gap and keep MS in the consumers eye\mind. That, IMO, is one of the reasons it was pretty much a joke. It was patched together from 98 and features that were planed for XP but much less refined.

    with the eye candy with XP even it gets boring after a while and thats why i brought window blinds so i change change the look whenever I want.
    I had a vista theme for a while and got board of it after a while.
    and then microsoft say look at the amazing semi transparent windows erm what about hydra vision that comes with ati graphics cards?
    thats done that for years its nothing new.
    and the amazing new themes are not amazing because i can get the same look with window blinds on XP.
    im not gonna move away from xp unles there good features that arent just eye candy that i can get in xp with some third party software.
    i can get desktop search on xp.

    One thing a lot of people forget. MS aims their OS at the average user. They are not aware of all the options both with in XP or with add ons.

    You are correct. Apologies to the OP. :oops:

    System Restore dose not exist on Win2k.

    Would it be possible to upgrade to XP service pack 2 or would it be too much of a hassle?:eek:
