    I assume your running Windows 95/98 or ME, if so click on Start>Settings>ControlPanel>Add/RemovePrograms>Make Disk. Insert a formatted floppy and follow the prompts. Then explore the floppy and delete those files off of it though I don't believe emm.sys is on a boot floppy. I know himem.sys is though.

    Yes you are right it was xms memory, but which are the files I should remove off the floppy.


    Thanks, geoff

    Remove himem.sys from the boot diskette for starters. Is there a website for the software you're trying to use. If so, can you post the link to it so I can have a look at the site.
