Hi

I thought I'd clean up my boss's Win 2k puter because it was slowing down so much, so I thought since I knew all the users on our network, and he had heaps more than that.

So I deleted a whole load of them.

And now his puter doesn' connect the network, and no internet. And most of his icons on the desktop don't show up.

I read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/840001 and totally don't understand any of it.

I mean like I put all the users back in from his Documents and Settings folder. I just totally don't get all that ManagedBy and MemberOf stuff.

We're all just in a Users Group called WORKGROUP. How hard is that?

But I remember last week I started the network and his puter had some kind of error like checksum or something, and said it was "going to load the default something-or-other" Hit F1 to continue.

I was thinking maybe if I could find that. And load it. It'd bring my boss's puter back to before I deleted his stuff?

Please help, it's the weekend now, and I need to fix it before he gats back to work Monday. Or I'm totally cooked.

TIA

Cyn

Nup -- see what happened is this.

His puter is really slow these days, so I thought I'd surprise him and fix it.

So I checked all the TuneUp Utilities stuff then I went in and saw there were so many users in Control Panel | Users and Passwords.

Heaps of them, and lots not recogniseable, so I deleted them coz I thought they might be trojans and that's why his puter is so slow.

But I was wrong. But I didn't delete anything from the hard drive. I figured is it can't get on the network and therefore the internet, I just need to restore the old users but can't figure it out

Ok, you said you ahve TuneUp Utilities?
In the top right corner, there should be a button that says restore or something to that effect. Does it? If not, what version TuneUp are you using?
