Ok, On Win2K Pro, after 5 to 45 minutes running, svchost.exe causes and error and windows shuts it down. Screws up stuff like, the Control Panel opens in a scrolling window on the left side, and the mail portion of the window is blank. If you go to, say, System Tools for instance when opening any folder you get a message that says "System Information report written at: 08/11/2003 10:14:09 PM
[System Summary]

System Information
The connection to could not be established. Check to see that the network path name is correct, that you have sufficient permission to access Windows Management Instrumentation, and that the Windows Management Instrumentation service is started on the computer."
( Yes it is, yes I do, and yes it is)

SO, I searched for it on the Win Installation CD and it tells me it can`t be found.
I tried to reinstall over the top, but The CD tells me it does not support upgrading to Win 2K pro, Service pack 2 (as I have Service pack 3 installed)
Is there a way to replace this file without a clean install ?

Or am I missing something obvious ?
