Welcome Paul.

We need to know the exact message displayed. It will give the name of the file which is missing. System.ini itself is there or you would not be able to load Windows and run without any problem.

Paul, to correct that go to the Control Panel> Network applet and remove Client for Microsoft Networks. Reboot and return to add it. You will need your system cd to add it back, but if you are not networking you don't really need to. You can also enter c:\windows\options\cabs when prompted for a disk.

I'm going to delete your second post on this because we don't need a duplicate thread.
