You probably won't have to go that far if you're OS is fine other than the error message. If you use the recovery console, it's gonna ask you if you have an ERD (emergency recovery disk) or not. If you don't have one, you're gonna have to get your hands on a good W2K book from the library so you can learn to use the dos-like commands. If you do have the ERD, than you choose the inspect system file options.
If none of the above works, you could try to copy the explorer.exe file from a good working W2K PC onto your current one.
BTW, have you looked in the event viewer in Admin Tools to see if it provides any clues as to the exact nature of hte problem?
