While reloading Win95 to allow my new printer port card to share IRQ7 with LPT1, after resarting Win95, I got an error indicating the a program in the system.ini file requires a file that is "damaged".  The file is ntkern.vxd.  Where can I get a new copy of this file.  Is it from my scanner?  The only way I can get Win95 to start is in the safe mode.

You need to check out your USB support. The Ntkern.vxd is realated it it.

You might want to try either of these 2 things (Only if you have OSR2)
Download the Universal Serial Bus update
http://www.keydata-pc.com/drivers/usbsupp.exe 

or you might try

1. Go to START; Settings; Control Panel; Add/Remove Programs.

2. In the list, double click on USB Supplement for OSR2.

3. Click YES to restart the system.

Hope this helps out...
