    Hi, I'm running Windows 98 on Compaq Presario. Problem is after deleting Webshots, I haven't been able to load pics off my camera, Kodak DC3200. When I clicked on program to do it it froze, and when I hit ctrl+alt+del, it had msgrv32(not responding)?? So I uninstalled Kodak DC3200 and planned on installing it back in but the setup just keeps freezing and I keep getting this msgrv32 not responding crap. I'm getting it alot where the comp just freezes..... I've searched the archives for answers, no solutions yet. I can't seem to find a power saver on my power management to check on or off. I had an unknown device in my system manager with an exclamation at it. Tried to update driver no driver found so I deleted it. It was WAN miniport?? Please tell me that was ok....
    If someone could help I'd appreciate it!
    Thanks

    It was OK to delete the WAN miniport I think. Boot to Safe Mode, (tap F8 five times per second during a restart; Choose option number three (3) in the Windows Startup dialog box using the arrow keys below the Delete key, and strike the Enter key; Click Ok when prompted).

    In Device Manager are there yellow exclamation points or yellow question marks there now?

    ***

    Still in Safe Mode:

    Right click My Computer; Point to Properties; Click the Device Manager tab; Click the plus sign beside CDROM; Highlight each device inside CDROM, each in turn, and click the Add/Remove button until no main CDROM entry is present.

    Repeat with each device below that, Display Adapters etc. (see exceptions below), removing all duplicate entries inside a main heading. If duplicates are present, remove all those Duplicate Entries Only, inside a main heading.

    Do Not bother Hard Disk Controllers, System Devices, and USB controllers.

    Restart via the Start button and Windows will redetect, refresh and only replace those devices needed. There is no use for 2 keyboards, CDROM etc. as those duplicates cause some of the errors you describe.

    You must restart your computer after uninstalls and between uninstall and reinstall. Plus you must unplug the hardware if you've uninstalled the software, ususally before the restart and right after the software uninstall.

    Hi, guys! I tried everything as above but I'm still having this msgrv32 (not responding) stuff when I try to install my camera. I've had the camera installed for 1 year and with it working fine until I tried to download my pics one day and the program started and then froze, pressed ctrl,alt,del and it was msgrv32.
    Is there a way I can replace just that file? Can I download it somewhere and get rid of this one??

    No, you were correct to delete those files. You'll have to answer all the questions above for me to help you further
