Restart and keep tapping the F8 key before the Windows screen loads to bring up the boot menu.

At the command prompt, type


Press the Enter key.

This will start the "Welcome to System Restore" screen. Go through the steps of the Wizard and follow the instructions to restore your system to a previous restore point.

You should be able to open the system.ini file in Notepad and delete the line that regers to that .VXD file. Alternatively you can create a new system.ini file click here

CDAINT2F.VXD appears to be part of c-dilla click here and this might explain the problems with removing programs. You could try installing the programs again, then trying to uninstall.

i followed this

1. Restart your computer to a command prompt. To do so, restart your computer, press the F8 key when you see the "Starting Windows 95" message, and then choose Command Prompt Only from the Startup menu. In Windows 98, restart your computer, press and hold down the CTRL key until you see the Windows 98 Startup menu, and then choose Command Prompt Only.
2. Type the following line to change to the Windows folder:

cd \windows
3. Type the following line to rename the current System.ini file:

ren system.ini
4. Type the following line to create a new System.ini file:

copy system.cb system.ini
5. Type the following line to edit the new System.ini file:

edit system.ini
6. Add the following lines at the top of the file:

Did the mouse come with an installation CD? If so try running that by inserting the CD in the drive and restarting.
