When Win95 starts to boot,before my desktop icons showup, I get a box labeled Network error.,with the phrase "The Netware-compatiable shell is not available" with an "O.K." box to click on. I'am not on a network of any kind, just a Sony PCV-90,when I click on the O.K., it completes loading Win95. I would like to get rid of this problem that began with my signing up to my current ISP,they can't seem to fix it. Thanks for your help,this is a needed service.

You may find this in your autoexec.bat, or config.sys file in the root of your C: drive.  I have seen drivers like these get installed this way.

Use edit to open these files and look for reference to the file names, usually starting with the letters NW.

By the way, why do you offer 0 for help with this?

Joe, I was not sure of how to use the points, I was going to give out points after the Question was answered correctly. I found the answer in the Help program that comes with Win95 under Netware. I reloaded it with Win95 and then removed it with the Win95 remove programs in Win95. It completely removed the problem. I found no referance to Netware or any NW in the places you mentioned to look, Thanks for the help

I had this problem, but it was when I dialed out that it did it. Maybe it will help you.  Make sure that in your Control Panel | Network settings has Client for Netware networks.  Some computers will give you an error, like yours if you don't.  So, to add it, press Add | Clients | Microsoft | Clients for Netware networks

Thanks for your help, I was able to solve the problem by using the Help function that comes with Win95, when I signed up with the new ISP I didn't completely remove all the Netware program that is why it prompted me that some of it was missing. When I followed the Help menu and reinstalled it, then used the delete programs that is in Win95 to remove it, it is now totally gone.
