    Chunkylad, these directions seem pretty clear to me, what is it that you are having a problem with?
    ============================

    Winboot Files in Root Folder of Drive C
    To determine if these files exist in the root folder of drive C:


    >> Click Start, point to Programs, and then click MS-DOS Prompt.


    >> At the command prompt, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:

    cd\
    dir winboot.sys /a


    If you find a Winboot.sys file in the root folder of drive C, type the following command to rename the Winboot.sys file, and then press ENTER:

    ren winboot.sys winboot.old

    After you rename the Winboot.sys file, type exit to return to Windows, and then restart your computer.
    ============================

    See also the second link I added to my first post.
