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.
