XP missing file start up problem

  roclive1 11:00 30 Nov 08

Recently, I had my 'ME' C drive formated, and replaced with 'XP Pro'. However, since then, nearly every time I plug in and start up, I receive the following two messages: 'The following file is missing or corrupted: C:\Windows\System\Vmm32.vxd', & 'The following file is missing or corrupted: C:\Windows\Ifshlp.sys'.
Just before these appear, the screen flashes for a nano second with the 'ME' start up logo.
I have to reboot three or four times via the on/off button before 'XP Pro' kicks in.
Any advice what the duce is occuring and how to fix, would be much appreciated.

I have XP Pro and don't have either of those files.

click here and you will see that these are ME problems.

I suggest you look in the startup activities, and delete the lines that refer to them.

You can do this via msconfig (start - run - msconfig) select start up tab.

Or via this very useful little program that allows better control over startup actions.

Is sounds like your hard drive wasn't formatted and XP installed, but instead ME was upgraded to XP. Not the best of options - see click here
