Error on bootup
Posted on 1999-01-25
I recently reinstalled Windows 98 on my kids computer. I first formated the hard drive and then reinstalled. Now, everything seems to be working, except when I boot up the computer, I get a text screen that says something to the effect that "Windows was unable to find a file specified in the registry or system.ini file..." Then goes on to recommend that you either reinstall the application that uses that file, or delete any reference to the file. It then specifies the offending file as "vnetbios.vxd". I can then press "enter" to continue with boot-up, without any problems. So, windows still seems to work fine, but the error screen is annoying everytime I start the computer.
I have no idea what application is causing this error. The error appeared following initial re-installation, even before I added any new applications.
Any ideas as to how I can pinpoint what is causing this error to appear, and fix it?
Thanks in advance,
