I had a trial verson of an anti virus program which I decided not to buy after the trial period which I then uninstalled and installed a different product - however I now get the following message at start up

Cannot find a device file that may be needed to run windos or a windows application
The windows registry or SUSTEM.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.
C:\PROGRA`1\F-SECURE\COMMON\FSGK95.VXD

F-Secure took me forever to download so is there a way to get rid of this without having to uninstall my new software and re-installing this just for the sake of 1 file to get rid of this message:confused: :confused:

Yes go into msconfig and take the check out of the program, reboot.

If you have win 98 follow these steps, if not go to my web page and instructions are listed there under msconfig in the table of contents.

Go to start, run and type in

msconfig

hit the enter key
click on the start up tab and remove the check from the program you uninstalled.

Reboot.

Or try this:

Go to Start/run, type Regedit.

Drill down to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD

Click on the plus sign preceding 'VXD'
A long list of VXD's unfolds.

Locate FSGK95.

If it's there, highlight it, and click 'Registry/Export Registry Key'
After you've backed up the key, highlight the vxd again, and press the DELETE key.

If it were not to be there, go to Edit/find, and look for it.
When found, highlight it, and hit delete

Quit Registry Editor, and then restart your computer.

Good luck,
