    I use windows 98 se, when I installed a virus protector disc, Mc Afee, and I reboot I get a message that says the above or a windows device file has been deleted,I have reinstalled windows no effect, any ideas ?? The installation of McAfee seems (but Im not entirely certain)to maybe have caused this problem.The exact message received is as follows "Cannot find a device file that may be needed to run Windows or a windows application" The Windows Registery or SYSTEM INI refers to this device file, but the device file no longer exists" If you deleted this file on purpose try uninstalling the associated applications or setup programs" If you still want to use the applications associated with this device file, try reinstalling that application to replace the missing file" C:\PROGRA"1\GRISOFT\AVG6\AvgCore.vxd Thanks if you can help in any way. You can probaly tell I am very new at Computers

    Can you post the exact error messages. It should include a specific file name.
