I get a message during start up that says CDSETUP.EXE
could not run, and when I close the error message-another
appears saying I should fix the problem, or remove reference of
it in the WIN.INI file. What do I do? How do I do it?

Welcome to TSG Danny.

You have a number of options. If you have Win98 or WinME you can run msconfig and click on the Win.ini tab. Look at the load= and run= lines and uncheck the one that references cdsetup.exe

Alternately you can run win.ini from start>run. It will open in Notepad. You can place a semicolon as the first character in the line where that is referenced to keep it from executing. Or you can simply remove the reference and leave

run=
load=

empty, with nothing after it. That's what I would do really, as this file is not required for anything in Windows.

Thanks for reply. Problem solved although there are some
others with this system that I will be throwing out here soon.
I am having many fatal exception errors in some VXD something or other, and a digital camera I have no longer works through desktop (unless I capture through DOS, and that doesn't give me the options that come with the software) even after unin and reinstalling the cam's software. The start up screen pops up...then comp freezes till I cntrl-alt-del. (warning says IBM PC Cam (not responding).

Glad to hear that one is disposed of. For the new problems you should start a separate topic for what appears to be each distinct issue. Always give information about your operating system (windows version) and basic system specs. For VxD or any other error messages give the full error message and address and when they occur.
