Every time when I restart my win 2000 server and before the windows screen
succesfull rolling to windows log-on screen, a WINS error message will
poping-up and the error message as follow:

"WINS could not start due to a missing or corrupt database.
Restore the database using WINS Manager (or winscl.exe found in the Windows
2000 Resource Kit) and restart WINS. If WINS still does not start, begin with
a fresh copy of the database.

To do tgis:

1) Delete all the files in the %SystemRoot%\system32\WINS directory.
NOTE: If the WINS database file (typically names wins.mdb) is not in
the above directory, check the registry for the full filepath.
NOTE: If jet*.log are not in the above directory, check the registry
for the directory path. Delete all log files.

2) Restart WINS."

Where can I get the WINS Manager or Windows 2000 Resource Kit? Please help
b'cos it keep frustrating me. Thanks.
