VXD questions...

By toddmosk ·
I recently installed a cable modem...
Since then I am getting this message when I start windows that Vredir.vxd and Dfs.vxd are missing from the registry/startup.ini
i have no idea what these might be?
also got a message that something vxd is missing and also get the blue screen of death here and there...

I had some problems with the intial installation, although now the cable modem is working. I had disabled and unstalled my old 56k modem. I have since reinstalled it just to be safe..Any help would be great, Thanks Todd

Just in case find the drivers disk for your network card you may need it. Also make sure to have the win98 CD available if the files are not on the hard drive.

Open Device Manager and uninstall the network and dailup adapters. When the computer reboots it will reload the network card and the files should be restored.

You can try using SFC.EXE to restore/update missing or replaced files. Some times files get replaced by a version than the microsoft original and placed in a new location. Thus the applications can't work correct.
Check what errors you getting and look up into Microsoft site for the reason whats error you got. This will Point you towards the right place.
Good luck.

You could also try system file checker to locate a missing file. Also: delete any and all old hardware and software that you intend on replacing and then power computer completely off. Wait a min and pwr on. Now attempt to install the new hardware per any install info that came with the "new" stuff. Failing that you're stuck with an OS reinstall.
