:confused: When I try to start or restart Windows, after running through the first few screens, I get the following message on what appears to be a DOS screen:
Cannot find a device that may be needed to run Windows or a Windows application :\progra~1\norton~1\norton~5\savftpel.vxd.
I have to hit the enter key and when I do, I get the same message except the last part is: savrt.vxd. Again, I hit the Enter key and after a l-o-o-o-ng wait (more than a minute) Windows finally starts up. I do not have any Symantic or Norton applications on my computer and don't want any. Can you tell me how to get rid of this annoyance? Thank you!

Hi,

Are you sure your previous user has not installed any Symantec Product before? How about going over Safe Mode by pressing F8 on the startup screen before your windows bootup.

Go in there and once your Safe Mode is in, hit the Ctrl+Alt+Del once and see if any norton product is running...then after that, try go to run and type "Msconfig" *Have to be careful wit that...you might able to disable some program where you wanted* then, uncheck that command, you'll have to read. Then start back your windows, and see if it helps...

YOu didn't get the current version that I linked, but with 98 we won't see what I would be looking for.

Run sysedit and see if you can find reference to it there

You can also see if this and its regcleaner can remove the orphan entry

EasyCleaner http://personal.inet.fi/business/toniarts/ecleane.htm

Use the clear files and Unnecessary files buttons - I do not recommend
using the Duplicates files button as many dupes are there on purpose.
