Similar "Missing Files" Problem

  Daoud 11:58 08 Mar 2004

This problem started on Saturday when I went to start my computer a Windows 98SE. It had been working fine until then...have only updated the IE.
Here's what it says on the screen when I try to switch on:
"Cannot find a device file that may be needed to run Windows or a Windows application.
The Windows registry or SYSTEM.INI file refers to this device file but the device file no longer exists.
If you deleted this file on purpose try uninstalling the associated application using its uninstall or setup program.
If you still want to use the application associated with this device file try reinstalling that application to replace the missing file."

Does this make sense to you?
If so,what can I do? I haven't deleted anything!

The other name which appears is SHLDDRIVE.VXD

Then on startup tab find SHLDDRIVE.VXD and remove tick - save and restart
