I recently bought a used IBM laptop that ,when booting, comes up with a "A device file 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 the file.
I downloaded the file perf.vxd and installed it in the directory vmm32 but I keep getting the same
error message. Any help getting rid of this message will be greatly apreciated.
