from the administrative tools menu. I recover one by one,
about 20 or more manually. I just finished updating from
Microsoft, 5 critical, 2 windows and 1 driver. I rebooted
the server and lost again at least 20 items from the
administrative tools menu.

any ideas ??

Use MSIEXEC to install a specific server administration tool that is
contained in Adminpak.msi
By default, when you install the Administration Pack, all the available
tools in the Administration Pack are installed. However, you can use
Windows Installer command-line switches to install specific server
administration tools.

For example, you can use the following command from a command prompt:
msiexec /i adminpak.msi ADDLOCAL=AdminToolAbbreviation /qb

NoteAdminToolAbbreviation is the abbreviated name of the server
administration tool that you want to install and that is contained in the
Windows 2000 Adminpak.msi file or the Windows Server 2003 Adminpak.msi file.

Note You must copy the Adminpak.msi file to a location on the hard disk
that is included in the Windows path, or you must include the path of the
Adminpak.msi file in the command line.

For example, to use the WINS snap-in to install a specific individual
server administration tool, follow these steps:
Insert the Windows 2000 Server or Windows 2000 Advanced Server CD into the
CD-ROM drive.
In Windows Explorer, open the I386 folder on the Windows 2000 Server CD or
on the Windows 2000 Advanced Server CD.
Copy the Adminpak.msi file to the Windows\System32 folder on the hard disk.
Type the following command from a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
msiexec /i adminpak.msi ADDLOCAL=FeWINSConsole /qb

To locate the WINS snap-in, click Start, point to Programs, and then click
Administrative Tools.
