That is a Vines Network Swap file. Does your PC connect to a network.? Does this occur during the startup?ie in the startup files.?

If this is occurring when you are Starting windows and You are not connecting to a Network for Banyan Vines. Then remove the banyan Vines protocol from your setup.
Go to Network Neighbourhood Properties
Then Get rid of any Banyan related Clients or Protocols

Z:vvinesd.386. A error that occur only durning boot up from a cold start.
Message reads: Cannot find a device file that may be needed to run windows or a Windows Application.
 The windows registry or SYSTEM.INI file refer to this device file, but the device file no longer exists.
If you deleted this file on purpose, try uninstalling the associated application using its uninstall or setup program.
If you still want to use the application associated with this device file, try reinstalling that application to replace the missing file. I want this message to go away but so far have not been able to solve the problem. HELP.

go to start>run>regedit and search for the file if you find a key to that file delete it.  If it's not in the registry look in the system.ini and rem the line with that file in it. Be careful editing the registry!!!!  Make Backups before you edit!!  If this solves your problem let me know and I'll post this as an answer

OK. Assuming you don't have BanyanVines network installed. Error
is pretty obvious: load \Windows\System.ini file into any text
editor, locate "vines" and remove this line (under [386Enh] section).
If it not there, run Regedit, go to menu -> Find and search for
"vines", then remove appropriate entry.

run Regedit.

  Thanks for your input but in order for this computer dummy to make the problem go away was to format the hard drive. I tried all of your suggestions but had not luck in solveing problem. Again thanks for your input.

Pity. All you need is do is: run Regedit, go to
\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\VVinesd
and remove it. And this IS an answer (I just couldn't find file
where I wrote exact location).

I received the file vvinesd.386. it seems to be a windows 3.11 file. i still haven't received an answer from baynes about the why and where of the file. personally i don't think that just deleting in the registry is a solution at all. the file is mentioned and therefore it has to exist. i still don't know where the z: comes from (exept that it is a network drive offcourse). the autoexec.bat is also changed to installing the network drive. if i have any answers on these questions from banyan i will report. i got the file from richard.vaillancourt@sit.ulaval.ca

greetings, will
