Windows 2000 was a modernization of Windows NT 4.0 which brought many of the desktop changes, including Active Desktop, to Microsoft's Windows NT line. Four editions of Windows 2000 were released, Professional, Server, Advanced Server, Datacenter Server. Improvements over NT 4.0 include new Accessibility Options, increased language and locale support, NTFS 3.0, the Encrypting File System and Active Directory. Windows 2000 was first planned to replace both Windows 98 and Windows NT 4.0 although using the NT kernel for consumer and professional editions would not happen until Windows 2000's successor, Windows XP.

  • Hi!
    I tried installing VBEMPK video drivers onto NT5 Build 1877 and now winlogon.exe crashes to a blue screen on start up
    If any one knows how to fix this or has a better/compatible driver for NT5, that would be greatly appreciated!
