    I was having too much problems with ME and decided to start clean, so I formatted the HD and installed Win98. Now it says that "vredir.vxd" and "dfs.vxd" are non-existent. Then it says that it's unable to load dynamic link library msnp32.dll. I went to a few sites and did what they instructed. I uninstalled the network completely and reinstalled it once again, but the same messages keep coming up. I've went thru "System File Checker", but it can not find any of the files on my 98 disc. Neither does File Search. Any suggestions?

    Reinstalling Client for Microsoft Networks usually fixes the problem.

    If it didn't try uninstalling it and leave it uninstalled. If you are not networking or connecting through broadband you don't need it.

    See which ones still report missing. Go to start and run regedit

    Click Edit > Find and one by one enter the file names that are still missing after the uninstall.

    Right click on and delete all references to them. Hit f3 to continue the search until done.

    After each search I recommend closing and reopening regedit or you may not get a valid search for the next dll.

    Usually they are not needed and deleting the registry calls for them will eliminate the "missing" messages.
