I downloaded free version of mcafee virus and it deleted one of my files. When I start my computer, the screen asks me if I want to start normal or safe. After I enter the number 1, it starts and then does a virus check. It then tells me that one of the files it had deleted was necessary for one of my applicaiotns. I then have to push any key for the startup to continue. When I do, everything is fine. How can I find out which application it is and how can I get the computer to start under normal automatically? I am running Windows 98, S.E.
Thanks.

Start button, run, then type msconfig and hit ok....uncheck the autoexec.bat and config.sys boxes, then restart.

The file is C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VSHINIT.VXD
It was deleted when I ran the mcafee program the 1st time.
Also when my pc boots up I get the message there is an error on config.sys file on line 6.
This error file has been for several months. Does not seem to affect anything.
Thanks
