    hi guys good day its me again. i got another problem. how could i get rid of this messages:
    let me inumerate:


    1.)
    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 exists.

    If you deleted this file on purpose, try uninstalling the associated application using it’s 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.

    vredir.vxd

    dfs.vxd

    Press any key to continue. . .



    2.)
    Unable to load the dynamic link library:
    msnp32.dll
    The system cannot find the file specified.
    Some or all of the following feature is not available:
    Microsoft Network


    3.)
    Cannot find the file ‘CDSETUP.EXE’ (or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.

    Could not load or run ‘CDSETUP.EXE’ specified in the WIN.INI file. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the WIN.INI file.


    hope guys you find answer
    thanks in advance.

    For issues 1 and 2, try this:

    Cannot find VREDIR.VXD, DFS.VXD and MSNP32.DLL

    For issue 3, try:

    Start > Run > type MSCONFIG and press Enter

    Select the WIN.INI tab, locate the reference to CDSETUP.EXE and remove the tick from the box, reboot and confirm the message does not reappear.

    Good luck.

    Try locating the *.CAB files in your HDD, maybe you have them there.
