QUOTE: "Check also that the files vmm32.vxd and imagehlp.dll are present in the
windows\system folder and that ifshlp.sys is present in the windows folder.
Note that whilst imagehlp.dll and ifshlp.sys can be replaced using new copies
extracted from the Win Me cabs (see MS Technet Q129605) (which is here: http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;Q129605
the file vmm32.vxd cannot
be replaced in this way and if missing or damaged there is little alternative
to reinstalling Win Me which can be reinstalled over the current damaged
I am still wondering what you originnaly meant when you started this thread saying " I had boght a clone computer from a computer repair shop about a month ago." We still need to know more info about this CLONE...
At this point, i would recommend a fresh new install of the OS..
Pull out all the stops... FDISK the drive, and reinstall the os...
Where did you get this clone from? If the spec in which you state are for this computer and you bought it a few months ago:
Hewlett Packard Pavillion Equivelent Clone:
*266mhz AMD K6 processor
*128 MB PC133/256k pipeline burst Cache
*6.38 GB Hard drive
*4 MB ATI 3D Rage Pro graphics card
I hope you paid very lilttle amount for this computer. If the person charged you more then $75 I would insist that you get your money back.
