SHLDDRV.VXD driver identification problem

  gotti 19:20 02 Jun 2004

When I boot up my computer I get a message informing me that the file SHLDDRV.VXD can not be found. I then have to exit this message by pressing 'any key' before Windows 98 is loaded. Presumably this driver belongs to an application that I may have uninstalled, or the file was somehow deleted or corrupted. The error message states that I should reinstall the application and then uninstall it again. Unfortuantely, I can't think which application is responsible. I tried checking on the web re this driver, but for some reason I can't find any info in English. I think the file belongs into Windows Systems dir. Does anyone have any idea where I could find a copy of this file or what application it could be associated with?

Did you uninstall Panda AV?

Go to Start >> Run >> and type regedit in the box and click OK

Then follow the path below.

Hkey_local_machine / system / current control set / services/ vxd

If you find the map SHLDDRV there then delete the line Static VXD "Shlddrv.vxd"

Dont touch the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VXD\JAVASUP key


Infact dont touch any other key.
