I have a computer that runs Windows 2000 Pro. It recently had a Blaster Worm virus causing it to stop downloading Windows updates. I downloaded a removal tool from Symantec and managed to get rid of the virus -- but the DOS still remains. Did I miss something? I don't have access to the Windows 2000 disk set at present. Is it essential that I have it?
You don't provide enough information. Downloading updates as in connecting to the Windows update site, running a scan and then saying yes to the download? Using the Windows auto update feature? If you have removed the virus, it may be that you need to repair the operating system. To do so, yes, you will need your Windows 2000 installation CD-ROMs.
