    Cannot find a device file that may be needed to run Windows or a Windows application.
    The Windows registry or SYSTEM.INI file refers to this device file, but the device file no longer exits.
    If you deleted this file on purpose, try uninstalling the associated application using its uninstall or setup program.
    If you still want to use the application associated with this device file, try reinstalling that application to replace the missing file.

    Edit the system.ini to delete the line that refers to the program you just deleted or:

    Use System Restore to roll your computer back to a date to before when your computer worked right. Before the error(s) started occuring.

    To start System Restore, click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. Or, in the Help and Support main screen, click Use System Restore under Fix a problem
