How do I edit vxd files?

My computer hangs for several minutes when booting up. I've traced this through bootlog.txt to a referrall to naapi.vxd. I do not have naapi.vxd anywhere on my system. The only place I can find a reference to naapi.vxd is inside of sb16.vxd (this was found out through windows 'find' by searching for the text 'naapi' inside of any files.)

I would like to edit sb16vxd to remove the reference to naapi.vxd or at least figure out what naapi.vxd is and try to find a copy of it.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry, but it is impossible to edit vxd files unless you are a genuis with machine code. What you could do is try to  remove sb16.vxd and see if you need it. If you do need it see if it is a driver for something. It looks form the title like a sound blaster 16 driver. If it is go to the company that made it and get the latest drivers.

Search win.ini, system.ini and the registry (using regedit) for references to the file.  You can then remove the references.
