The NTKERN.VXD ERROR FIX
Method 1.
You might want to try either of these 2 things (Only if you have OSR2)
Download the Universal Serial Bus update
http://www.keydata-pc.com/drivers/usbsupp.exe 
or you might try
1. Go to START; Settings; Control Panel; Add/Remove Programs.
2. In the list, double click on USB Supplement for OSR2.
3. Click YES to restart the system.

Method 2.
This comes from:
http://www.3-cities.com/~crstrode/ntkweb.htm 
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VMM32\filename.VXD
On the re-boot following reinstallation of Windows
95, you get the following message:

"Windows could not combine VXDs into a monolithic
before starting. Windows may not run properly. If
Windows fails to start, run setup again.

Press any key to continue."

Once you press a key, the following message will
appear:

"A device that is specified in the SYSTEM.INI file
is damaged.

It may be needed to run Windows.

You may need to run the Windows setup program again.
If the file is included in another software
package, you may need to reinstall the software that
uses this file.

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VMM32\filename.VXD."

This message MAY appear for each of the following
VXD files.
VWIN32.VXD,
VCOND.VXD,
VXDLR.VXD,
VPICD.VXD,
VTD.VXD,
VMCPD.VXD,
NTKERN.VXD,
VPICD.VXD,
VTD.VXD,
VXDIDR.VXD,
VWIN32.VXD,
VMCPD.VXD,
VCOND.VXD.

After going through the 13 error messages, the
following message will appear:

"Configruration manager cannot load because one of
the following files is not present or has an invalid

version number:

VMM32.VXD, SHELL.VXD, VTD.VXD, VXDLDR.VXD,
WPICD.VXD.

Try running setup again. Press any key to continue."

When you press a key, you will get the message

"It is now safe to turn off your computer".

On subsequent reboots you will only get the 13 error
messages and "Safe to turn off" message. You
will also get these error messages if you attempt to
boot in Safe mode.

NOTE! IF you are just getting and error message for
NTKERN.VXD, go to the HOW TO section steps 17-19

The cause of my problem was the version of Win 95
installed on my new computer was different
from the version of Win 95 included on the
distribution disks.

This problem occurs because you are installing OSR2
(CD) over OSR2.1 (HDD). OSR2.1 is really
OSR2 with the USB Supplement, but because some file
versions are different, installing OSR2 over
OSR2.1 will cause some problems. The main thing to
remember is that when installing OSR2 over
OSR2.1 you will need to overwrite many of the newer
files with the older ones. If you opt to keep
the newer version, this problem will occur. The
below how-to steps changes the installed Windows
version to 2.0. Currently Microsoft has not released
an end user upgrade to go from OSR2 to OSR
2.1. However, there should be one made available as
a driver as USB products come to the market.

To solve the problem, Re-install Windows 95 and
each time the setup program asked if you wished
to replace a newer file with an older one (as
shipped on the distribution disks) answere
"yes" and replaced the files. The result was that I
now had a completely "new" version of the "older"
Windows 95 installed on the computer. At this time,
I still was receiving the message about
NTKERN.VXD. I discovered an update file for Windows
95 called OEMUSB.EXE. When this file
was executed, it updated the "older" version of
Windows 95 to the current version as was installed
on my computer to start with.

Try this, It should work for you.

In case it doesn't . . .

Reinstall Windows 95 using the distribution CD.
Then, be sure to overwrite

all newer VXD files with the older ones on the CD.

Then remove the USB supplement for OSR2 from
Add/Remove Programs in Device Manager.

Here is the procedure:

1. Boot to command prompt only.

2. At the C:\> prompt, type: CD\windows\options\cabs
and press <ENTER>.

3. Type <SETUP>, press <ENTER>.

4. Press <ENTER> to run scandisk.

5. At the software license agreement click YES.

6. At the Windows 95 startup wizard screen click YES.

7. At the choose directory screen click NEXT.

8. At the setup options screen click NEXT (Typical
is selected).

9. At the user information screen, verify information and click NEXT.

10. At the analyzing computer screen click NEXT.

11. At the windows components screen click NEXT.

12. At the startup disk screen select NO, and click
NEXT.

13. At the start copying files screen, click NEXT.

14. During copying, you will get a VERSION Conflict
message about the file WINOA386.VXD.
Click NO to all.

15. At the finishing Setup screen click NEXT.
Windows 95 will now reboot to the system. You will
now get only one error message for the NTKERN.VXD.
The following steps should correct the problem.

16. Follow the directions on the screen to finish
setting up Windows 95.

17. Go to START; Settings; Control Panel; Add/Remove Programs.

18. In the list, double click on USB Supplement for OSR2.

19. Click YES to restart the system.

lemme know if you still need it after this.
