Without knowing what caused it, I'll just give you a couple things we've done from time to time.

Write down the name of the file and find where it's supposed to be. If it's a Windows files, go to another machine with the same OS and copy it toa disk. If you search for it on the good machine, you'll also see where it goes if you couldn't before. Then put it in the same location on the problem one.

I presume you re-installed Windows 9.x. If not, do that first. If you have Win98, runSFC from the Run command.

After that you may need to go into the registry. From my experience this problem is rarely a Windows problem but some other software.

Depending on the vxd files that are missing or damaged there are different things you can do. Could you be a little more specific on the vxd files. One thing I do is go to the registry by ging to Start-Run and type in regedit. Once in the registry do a search on the vxd file and delete it. Strongly recommend backing up registry before doing this. Works about 90 percent of the time for me and this wil also let you know what the vxd pertains to.

Thank You
