Invaild Vxd dynamic link call from NDIS(03) + 00000022   to device "004B", service 800B
Your windows configuration is invalid. Run the windows setup again to correct this problem.


 My question is what am I looking for and how do I fix it. I guessing it may be related to my network

OS: Win 95

As you said, it is related to the network.  What OS?  If 98, you can Start-Run-SFC and let it replace all system files it finds a problem with.  There may be only a few or many.  Have your CD ready for that one.
You could also do as it suggests and F8 while booting and go to a DOS prompt, log to your CD, and then run SETUP to reinstall Windows.  If you install over the current setup there should be no problems.  Be sure to have good backups around if something does go wrong, though.

If you are running 95/98 and can get into safe mode, you may be able to remove all the netowrking components, then try rebooting and if that works, reinstall them. Just a thought to try before reinstalling Windows

From DOS edit autoexec.bat and type

rem Startnet.bat

So the problem is with Dialup networking or network as listed above.
are you using a network card or a modem?

In my opinion, a B grade is now warranted, will change to an A.
