nwnblink.vxd

Following enabling of NetBios on an IPX/SPX EtherNet 2 computer network I get an error message on reboot that the registry or system.ini are looking for nwnblink.vxd file but can't find it.  Further, it says that I can either delete the associated application or reinstall it.
I have had no problems with the functioning of the network.
My question(s)-
1) How can I stop this error message from appearing ?
2) Is nwnblink.vxd important to the running of the network ?
Thanks
Tim Forsyth

What is installed in your network properties. I mean which protocols, servers, clients, etc.

If you use Windows 98 then restore the file with c:\windows\system\sfc.exe
Select 'extract one file from installation disk'
type nwnblink.vxd in the edit box and click start.
Make sure that 'restore from' refers to the install CD or whatever, and 'save file in' refers to c:\windows\system.

If you have Windows 95 then copy the nwnblink.vxd file from another system or extract is manually from the original CAB files.

If nwnblink.vxd is impotant depends on what network software you have installed. I have IXP, Netbeui and TCP/IP and do not need nwnblink.vxd.

1) Getting rid of the message is something that can be done.
2) Do you need it depends on your network, or even your internet connection.

Check if it is in your 'system.ini' file and disable it by placing a semicolon (;) in front of the line. Reboot your system and see if anything is affected by it. If the file is not in your 'system.ini' file, then you'll have to clear it out of your regeistry.

Epsylon's answer required that I re-install Windows 95 (on re-boot it gave me no other option).  This did eventually solve the problem but a number of applications had to be re-installed.  I think this is one of those small problems with no easy answer.
