Slow boot up due to error mesages

  cosmic605 14:16 02 Jul 2003

I have just fitted a new 60GB WD Caviar harddisk in place of a damaged Maxtor. During boot uo I am getting several messages which appear to be about"Microsoft Network".
Each one relates to a "device driver?" which the system.ini or windows registry cannot find. The files named are:-
vnetsup.vxd, vredir.vxd and dfs.vxd

The result is that "dynamic link library" cannot be loaded due to missing msnp32.dll file!?

What have I done wrong and is there an obvious fix?

Any help would be appreciated.

I did a complete reinstall of Windows 98SE from the cdrom, but the problem recurred.

Sorry to have put my question in the wrong section. Have now moved it to Helproom. Couldn't get the link to Google to work though.
Thanks anyway.
