    If I have a boot file loading at startup, how do I eliminate it. Basically I have the file iomdisk.sys loading. I deleted this from the system32 directory and now I get a blue screen. So, this must be listed for bootup in an *.ini file. Does anyone know which one so I can go in and delete the line?

    can you still get into windows? if so try to remove it with msconfig and check if it isnt in your startup folder.

    I would say you might want to check config.sys (if you have one).

    Wouldn't the proper way be to uninstall your Iomega zip drive from device manager? Windows should then stop trying to load the driver at startup.

    Guys, I did all that before I posted. It is not in msconfig and I have no config.sys.

    Right now I cannot get into windows, but I'll fix all that in safe mode once I know how to get rid of the system32 file looking to boot.
