What are dpmi16.DLL AND dpmi32.dll?

When I logout from my Novell network, I often get an error that an application running across the network did not shut down properly; windows will be restarted.  Using OpenFile, I have determined that these two DLLs are responsible, but I don't know what they do, or what program they are associated with.

Copying them to the local Windows directory seems to solve the problem.

Any help appreciated!

DPMI16.DLL and DMPI32.DLL are provided with McAfee VirusScan 95.

DPMI is DOS Protected Mode Interface.  It allows DOS programs to access memory above 640K.  The DPMI specification is available from a variety of locations (I believe it was originated by Intel).  You might try:  ftp://ftp.qdeck.com/pub/general/dpmispec.zip to learn more about it.

These files are probably included to allow the DOS SCAN program to run properly in the Win9x environment.
