Go to the Start button, then select Run. Type in sysedit and hit enter. This opens all of the system config files - autoexec.bat, config.sys, protocol.ini, win.ini and system.ini. Select system.ini and do a search for vfd.386. If you find it, place a ";" in front of it. Close and save system.ini and reboot.
If you don't find it referenced in system.ini, try win.ini. Failing that you will need to search the registry, but I doubt it is there. Was this machine upgraded from Windows 3.x?

Good luck.
