Microsoft Networking boot

I am running Windows 98 and when I boot up I receive messages saying that the registry or system.ini cannot locate a device driver file.  It displays this message for each file.  The two that it says are missing are dfs.vxd and vredir.vxd.  When it finally boots up it displays a dialog box saying it is missing a dll for microsoft networking.  How do I get rid of these messages?  Microsoft Networking is not listed as a program to be removed under the add/remove programs box.

Austin, give this a try:

1. Insert your Win98 CD into the drive.

2. Click Start, Run and type in SFC and then click okay.

3. Choose "Extract one file....." and then insert dfs.vxd.

Save the file to C:\Windows|System

Repeat the process for the vredir.vxd file.

4. When the process finishes, close SFC and reboot the system.

Let me know if you need more!
