  • Hello biigg53,

      Unfortunatly, I can't. 

    1)  I would need to see the Product Key and you do NOT want to post your Product Key on a Public Forum where anyone could copy and use it.

    2) This is the Windows Genuine Advantage Support forum.  Windows 2000 is not supported by WGA.  Because of this, I have no training in Windows 2000, at all. 

      I believe Windows 2000 is past it's lifecycle, so I do not believe any Microsoft support is available for it, but I could be wrong.  Please see http://support.microsoft.com for any available support options.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help,
    Darin MS
