Windows 2000 pro hangs
« on: November 25, 2005, 05:40:36 PM »
While trying to repair windows 2000,(stopped recognizing modem) it went into upgrade. Now is "hung" in setup and I can't cancel. When I restart, goes back to set up. Tried in safe mode...goes back to setup. How in the world do I get out of it and just get back to the normal start menu?
Thanks in advance.

    If it is asking you for your 25 digit license number, you have a serious trojan/virus issue. I am not sure what you did, but a full format and reinstall will fix it. Do you have a legal copy of Windows 2000?
    Please post as much information about your computer, operating system, and problem as possible, what happened prior to problems, etc. Too much info is OK, too little is pointless! Don't just say "My computer doesn't work. What's wrong?"
