Helllo. Anybody still using Win2k out there? Im using it RIGHT now. I love it!! I have a Athlon 2 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. Windows 2000 is so stable and... great!!! In my opinion its much better than XP. And i can also use Spotify 0.6 (Not the latest version) but it still works. It says on the Spotify website that Spotify 0.6 requires Windows XP, Vista or 7 but it still works. Im using Office 2003, as I can't install OpenOffice because im getting an error message "The entry point (setup.exe) could not be located in the dynamic library Kernel32.dll" I have upgraded to Service Pack 4, but when i try to go to Windows Update I get an error message saying something about ActiveX controls or something.And OpenOffice 3 supports Windows 2000 Im using

Torrent Client - BitComet (Still works with good ol' 2000)
Web browser - SeaMonkey 2
Text Editior - Microsoft Office Word 2003
Music - Spotify
Antivirus - ClamWin
Firewall - Sygate Personal Edition
E-mail - Mozilla Thunderbird
Backup web browser - Netscape Navigator 9, Mozilla Firefox and Opera - The first picture is the screenshot

The background is of a Lada Samara, my favourite car (I love russian cars)

Anybody knows how to fix the Kernel32.dll thing? And what could be wrong with Microsoft Internet Explorer 5? It has worked on Windows Update before. And Windows Update says it just needs Internet Explorer 5 or higher!? The site says something about ActiveX controls.
BTW: The folder on the desktop named "Nedlastinger" is really the downloads folder. "Nedlastinger" is the norwegian word for "Downloads". And I'm from Norway.

Can't help you with OpenOffice.

Regarding you IE5 problem that used to work on Windows Update website.
Microsoft have updated that website and it now requires IE6 or later.

You really should get up do date with a modern version of Windows instead of hanging on to a very old version which is no longer supported by Microsoft.
Use Windows 2000 on an old PC if you must, but I wouldn't have it as my main one.
