missing files

By sw723 ·
I recently reformatted my hard drive on another computer.Windows 98SE..Now when I boot up it says: Windows may not operate correctly as file "vnetsup.vxd cannot be found" then you hit a key to continue and it says Windows may not operate correctly as file "vredir.vxd cannot be found" then you hit a key to continue and it says Windows may not operate correctly as file "dfs.vxd cannot be found" then it goes to the background of your desktop and a box appears that says " dynamic library files cannot be found : msnp32.dll is missing". Then when you delete out of that all is fine and it boots on up.
Where can I get these files and where do I put them once i put them? Also how do i put the sound drivers back on?

There is probably a good reason why the re-install didn't install thes files. Look in your "Device Manager" Right click My computer and select Properties and then Device mnager. Do you have any Yellow Exclamation Points?
If you have a yellow exclamation point, chances are you will need to reinstall your PCI stuff first, so your video card can install correctly. Check out the manufactures downloads for Intel, Via or Other (depending on brand) for Chipset Drivers. While you are there search for a newer BIOS update.
If you have no yellow exclamation marks then just run the program SFC and make sure all your files are May 11, 1998 or later. This should find the missing files and ask you to exctract them to the correct folder from your CDROM.
good Luck,

I do not know what " reinstall your PCI stuff" first means. I donot know what a new Bios update means either. I do have yellow exclamation pponts, but I need someone to answer that can give me their email address so I can talk back and forth to them and get this resolved.

What you are seeing is an incomplete network setup. You will need to install all drivers as the previous post suggested. After you have the drivers in, the network protocols should settle down and you should not see the errors again.

You do not need to have a network between 2 computers to have the network configured. All you need to have in the computer is a modem or a nic. It will automatically config the drivers. What you are seeing is an incomplete configuration due to drivers not being loaded for the modem or nic. As far as loading the drivers for your computer and devices, you will need to know what all the devices are, and either have the drivers on disk or get the nic or modem working in order to go on the web and look up the components at the manufactors site and download the appropriate driver for the device and your operating system. If you have a branded box, (ie Dell, IBM, etc) you can go the the manufactors site and look up your model of computer in the support area and find most of the drivers needed. If you can't identify the components or don't know what brand/model of components that you have in your computer, you may be better off to have someone else do it for you.

Since your HD was configured on another PC the hardware components may be different. Reinstall the NIC drivers and you should be OK. Check the Mfg. web page to see if there are any updated drivers. This should take care of the problem.

I ran into this recently on a client's system. You can search for the filenames you mentioned using [Windows Key]+F. I suspect you'll find them under an AOL directory. If you find more than one copy of the files, pick the ones that match your active version of AOL (typically the newest files). When you locate the missing files, copying them to C:\Windows\System32\ should make your errors go away. The last error message may continue to show up when booting, but magically disappear after running AOL a few times.

Oh, if you don't use AOL, uninstalling it will probably fix your problem.

Hope that helps...
