Windows 2000 is another OS. Let's proceed that you have Windows ME.
For now, eject all pests as noted at http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6141-0.html?forumID=8&threadID=17444&messageID=191292
You should write more detail about the machine, if someone recently loaded the OS and tell if what you read at http://www.annoyances.org/exec/forum/winme/1080448219 looks familiar.
To me it seems your machine has pests.
