I am running XP Pro on a Toshiba Tecra 8000 PII. There are 2 users on this
computer and we are not connected to a network.

In playing with the settings in MMC I have caused some problems with my
system that I do not know how to correct.

1. I am unable to get Properties on anything in MMC. This also means that I
am unable to configure them.

2. Search does not work. At all.]

3. Help does not work. At all.

4. I cannot create shortcuts on my desktop and move them. They are created
on my desktop wherever I right-click and cannot move them from there. They
are not locked, though.

5. My SO cannot logon to his desktop. The only person who can logon is myself.

Please, I did some really stupid things in the middle of the night when I
was tired (instead of shutting it down and sleeping until I wasn't) and do
not know how to undo them. I setup the IIS module. I get a network logon now
instead of a local computer logon.

See if doing a System Restore to before you "played with" the settings
helps.

When I start System Restore, all I get is a blank window.

You might want to take a look at this article:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;304449

On the menu that comes up after you hit the F8 key make sure you
select "Safe mode with command prompt".
