1. Restart your computer. When you see the "Starting Windows 95" message, press the F8 key, and then choose Command Prompt Only from the Startup menu.

2. Type the following line to change to the Windows\System folder:

cd \windows\system

3. Type the following line:

ren vmm32.vxd vmm32.old

4. Reinstall Windows 95.

NOTE: If you installed Windows 95 from a CD-ROM, you may need to enable the Mscdex.exe line in the Autoexec.bat file or reinstall the real-mode CD-ROM drivers included with the CD-ROM drive before you can reinstall Windows 95. After you enable the real-mode CD-ROM drivers, repeat step 1 to restart the computer.

MORE INFORMATION A Vmm32.vxd file is included on the Windows 95 disks and CD-ROM. Extracting this version of the file will not solve the problem, as it is an incomplete version of the file. You must run Setup to re-create a system-specific Vmm32.vxd file.

That's the best I can do...  Ü
