Virtual Device Driver Error Message

  Wessie 13:49 24 Jun 2003

Everytime I logon to my computer which is running Windows 2000 I get the following message

16-bit MS-DOS Subsystem
System\currentcontrolset\control\VirtualDeviceDrivers. VDD. Virtual Device Driver format in the registry is invalid. Choose 'close' to terminate the application

From the research that I have done to resolve the problem you need to go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\VirtualDeviceDrivers\VDD
On the edit menu, click Delete
On the Edit menu, click Add Value
Type VDD in the Value Name box, click REG_MULTI_SZ for the Data Type and then click OK
The Multi-String Editor appears. Leave this entry blank and click ok
Quit Registry Editor

I have gone this this step and created a new VDD key but I do not see the REG_MULTI_SZ entry so cannot select it. I have tried the three diffent values (String, binary and DWORD) but none of these seem to work. I have also deleted and created the whole VirtualDeviceDrivers registry key.

Any advice on how I can stop this message appearing would be appreciated.
