If you get this message before your Windows Desktop background loads, chances are it is a command in your CONFIG.SYS or AUTOEXEC.BAT file that is causing the problem.
If everything looks fine but the error comes up in a dos screen before Windows starts the problems will most probably be in the REGISTRY or (often not) the SYSTEM.INI file
To check the REGISTRY, press F8 when the "Starting Windows98" box comes up and select the option to create a BOOTLOG.TXT file. Start as you normally do by pressing Fail or Ignore (whatever you do) and when Windows has started, look in the BOOTLOG.TXT file and search for "FAIL", this will look at failed drivers etc that have tried to load. The failed driver mentioned will be in the REGISTRY or the SYSTEM.INI file, do a search and remove the offending string.
If no problem there, hold down the SHIFT button when Windows starts. If the problem goes away, the problem is either in your STARTUP folder or the LOAD or RUN statements of the WIN.INI, remove the offending statement. If the problem is still not found I would suspect the RUN or RUN SERVICE strings in the REGISTRY are at fault and something is there to cause the problem.HK_Local_Machine/Software/MicrosoftWindows/CurrentVersion.....

To me the error message indicates your machine is trying to copy or print to a drive/path or device that no longer exists.
