Missing file sti.dll

After installing a HP 6300c DeskJet Scanner with USB and rebooting I get an error message that says that a file in SYSTEM.INI refers to a file hpsjvxd.vxd thats corrupt. Then when windows (95) starts I get 2 messages that says "STI.DLL is missing".
The scanner worked anyway but my sound is very very low after this.
I have moved the scanner to another maschine running NT and SCSI and now I wan't to remove the problem on my maschine without having to reinstall everything.

Does anyone know how to fix the problem or where I can find the file STI.DLL?

You can find Sti.DLL at this link


The easiest way to resolve the missing/ corrupt file warningon the file hpsjvxd.vxd  would be to enter windows and then hit ctrl,alt,delete and end task everything except for explorer and systray and then reinstall then uninstall it...
The other way you could get rid of this message is to go to start run and type sysedit then go into the system.ini file and look for a load or a run command calling that file or a device=hpsjvxd.vxd line and then type REM in front of that line and then save the changes

Edited text of question.
you could also try this resolution
for the corrupt file in the system.ini

ISSUE: When computer is booted the following error appears: "Device driver HPSJVXD.VXD could not load or has been removed from the system."

Also, in Device Manager, the device status for the scanner may report: "NTKERN.VXD device loader could not load device driver, code 2."

SOLUTION: Extract the following files from the Windows 98 CD-ROM to C:\Windows\System



Extract the following file from the Windows 98CD-ROM to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers


NOTE: Files may be extracted using the System File Checker in Windows 98. To access this tool go to the Windows desktop. Select Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, then System Information. Within Microsoft (R) System Information select Tools, then System File Checker.

Once these files have been extracted to these directories, restart the computer and open the scanner.

Most usefull was the link to where I could find the sti.dll file.
The second tip wasn't very clear and the third wasn't so usefull because I have a windows 95 installation and not an Windows 98.
