HEAD,
If you want to stop it from loading, check system.ini file for a line that calls the file.  Then insert a semi-colon ";" at the beginning of the line to disable it.

Do you have a drive Z: in the computer?
Proper syntax would include a "\" after the Z: in that calling line.

Let me know if you need more.
Regards,
Ralph

HEAD,
I won't receive an email at that address.
We can communicate here.  That's what EE is designed for.
If the proposed answer did not solve your problem, you should not have accepted it.
Don't worry about it now, but keep it in mind for the future.

Back to the problem.....

1) Try checking system.ini for winesd.386. (without the "z:")
2) Does Windows load okay after the error?
Let me know by commenting here.
Regards,
Ralph
