When I start up my computer, it says that it can't find the following files that are run under my system.ini file:
vnetsup.vxd
nwlink.vxd
nwredir.vxd
nscl.vxd
vredir.vxd
ndis.vxd
ndis2sup.vxd  and
vnetbios.vxd
so when i go to my system.ini file to change the configuration (because i no longer use the program associated with it), i can't find them listed anywhere.  can somebody help me?

Michou: Each of the files you have listed are part of the normal Windows 95 installation and should be on your hard drive, either for use in shared applications or for use by windows 95 alone. Each of these can be extracted and saved to your hard drive individually or through reinstallation of Windows 95. Let me know which methid you desire and I'll post the appropriate procedure for you to use.

Michou, you say you do not have the cd rom disk, but that your system came with Windows 95. Is this a new computer? Sometimes computer companies develop a special hidden directory where they have stored the contents of the cd rom disk on your hard drive. Let me know the above and I'll try and help you find what you need. If the computer is older, then I'll arrange to send you what you need.

Dennis,
I figured out how to remove all but one error message that appears on my computer screen when I boot up the computer.  Now all that remains is the vnetsup.vxd that I can not fix.  The problem was that I had accidentally hit a button loading the Network Dialing application, but I did not have the cd-rom to load the files into the computer, so I pushed cancelled...unfortunately, it was after the computer had already reconfigured my system.ini file, so I went back and installed the network dialer (having it skip all of my missing files needed from the cd-rom) and then I uninstalled it again (hoping that it would rewrite the system.ini file)... it was successful with all of the files except for the vnetsup.vxd file....
I can't find a special hidden directory with the contents of the cd-rom disk on my hard drive... I think that the best method to solve this problem is just to have the vnetsup.vxd file sent to me, if it is not too much of a hassle.
thank you,
michou
