System restore for Win 2k?

  Fruit Bat /\0/\ 22:28 16 Jun 2005

A friend has just phoned, crashed his Win 2k system, after download updates PC failed to shut down was still on logon screen when relooked at so was shutdown.

On restart Taskbar and desktop icons are all missing but can access files using task manager.

Sounds like a corrupt profile any way to restore in win 2k?

All I could find, was the M/s link for backing up the registry in 2000.

Now I get the message from him that it is not Win 2k its XP.

System restore not worked, last Known good config not worked.

Told him to try sfc / scannow or a repair by installng over the top of the original version.

Going to tick this as resolved as he is off on holiday for a week.

Thanks again for the help.
