Hello, I made a mess I think, more like I know. I was running (Win 98 SE),
I installed (Win ME ) I did not make a restore point. ( BIG BOOBOO) I tried to restore the next day like an idiot but it was already to late. The most important thing & I screwed it up.
I was having trouble with ME (System crashes & other related problems) so I uninstalled it , formatted the hard drive and reinstalled my Windows 98SE .For the past 6 months or so When I start up windows I receive a message on a black screen telling me that the Windows registry cannot find (system INI File)(vxd & dfs) something like that. what I wanted to know was If I've messed it up for good or what.? I'm so tired of seeing this when I start Windows. I've already searched the Windows 98 SE CD and It won't recover this INI file. Will I have to buy a new 98 CD? Can this Problem be fixed in MSDOS MODE? Any information that you could supply me with would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You So Much.

There are two ways to do it. the first is to go to Control Panel>Network>Configuration Page
Click the add Button
Select Client for Microsoft Networks.
You will need your install disk if you didn't put the cabs on the Hard Drive.


The second involves editing the registry. Let me know if you want that method.

thank you for all your help.
I need that other method also.
Anything that will stop this message from coming up when I start Windows. I really hope this works.
Once again Thank you for all of your help.

Did you try the first method? It's really either /or.

Reinstalling client for Microsoft Networks will add the missing file referenced at start.
Try that first, reboot. The message should be fone.

Here's the registry method:
Go to start>run and type regedit. Press enter.
NAvigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\DFS

You navigate the same as in windows Explorer.
When you get to DFS. Click on it to hightlight.
In the right pane you will see an entry named


StaticVxd


Delete that entry.

But only use this method if you have not reinstalled Client for Microsoft Networks. Otherwise you are going to create another problem.

Thank you very much .
The second method is the one I tried because the first method I've tried that before due to some Network related problems and when I reboot, I still had the message. Now It's fine. Thanks to you. To be honest I have several problems that I'm going to post.LOL Anywho . Thanks
