Missing "files32.vxd" file

By barrette1 ·
Hi,

I started having problems running programs on my 95 machine after I loaded a virus scanner. I keep getting the error: Can't find program "files32.vxd". I can't find this file anywhere. I believe it's a system file. Because of this error, Ican't run outlook, anything in the control pannel, or just about any program. I can't uninstall anything and can't even access the registry without this error popping up. Has anyone seen this before?

Brad

This is a file created by the "Pretty Park" virus.
Here's Symantec's information:

Thanks! This was the answer. Symantec's removal tool worked great.

Thanks to all who took the time to answer!

1. try to get a set of dos boot updated virus scan disk to scan your pc
2. Write down the infected files name if it is not too many
3. If you still can't clean the virus delete the files whic is infected
4. Reinstall win95 on top of your 95
5. Reinstall the program which you have deleted the files .
6. IF files32.vxd still pop up , run regedit search the file name and delete it

Hi,

The best suggestion would be change Windows 95 to Windows 2000 is worth it to upgrade. This only a suggestion this virus might come again and again. Nobody knows.

I have in the past went a win2000 boot disks and extracted it to a 95 and Nt machine with pretty good results (4 out of 5). I had to boot into safe mode to do it however.
