When you start the Add/Remove Programs tool in Control Panel on a computer running Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, the following error message may be displayed:
Mshta.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows
To resolve the behavior, type the following commands in the Run dialog box:
  • sfc /purgecache
  • sfc /scannow
NOTE: Windows 2000 prompts you to insert the Windows 2000 Professional CD-ROM to complete these commands.

If you run these commands and the behavior is not resolved, perform an in-place upgrade of Windows 2000 Professional.
