      refer to support.microsoft.com – q article #Q231176 in regards to running disk defrag. on win2k.
      it states “that the only way a non-administrator can defragement a local volume is to run the Dfrg.msc console in the context of a user who has administrator privileges.” It then proceeds in giving the command to use to do so.

      To complete your question, only an administrator can change network settings.

      1. Defrag
      Manual defragmentation in W2K is slow and incomplete. Buy the full version of Diskeeper from Executive Software. It’s automatic and the Admin can schedule defrags for remote machines (at night). This obviates the need for users to bother with defrag. Diskeeper also defrags the paging file (which the built in defragger can’t).

      2. You can create your own Special Power User profile or modify the existing one. You can also control just about anything you want with Group Policies. It’sall in the Help.
