Ok here's my story.

I installed 4.0 and during reboot got a "Windows 2000 could not start because of the following file is missing or corrupt: SYSTEMced"

So I did a last working configuration and was able to boot.
Think I deleted any Deamon files and then installed, what I thought, would be a more compatible 3.47.

Again I got the "Windows could not start. . "
However THIS time it was has been pure hell. I've tried it all. As I have a dual boot system, I'm able to reach over into the W2K OS easily and deleted d346bus.sys, d34prt.sys, sptd5037.sys and sptd.sys.

No luck.

I then tried a Windows repair. . .no luck. Same "Windows 2000 could not start because of the following file is missing or corrupt SYSTEMced"

Any ideas? I'd rather not reinstall if possible!

Try checking the file size of the SYSTEM registry file(hive) - its under system32\config\.
