---------------------------

This problem is caused by invalid Registry data. To fix it:

1. Launch REGEDT32 (you can enter the name in the Start menu's Run dialog). You must use Regedit32, not Regedit.

2. Open the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subwindow.

3. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\VirtualDeviceDrivers.

4. In the right-hand pane, select the value named VDD.

5. Select Delete from the Edit menu.

6. Select Add value from the Edit menu.

7. In the Add value dialog, enter VDD, and choose REG_MULTI_SZ as the data type.

8. When the Multi-String Editor appears, click OK without entering anything.

9. Quit the Registry Editor.

run a registry cleaner. I wood advise you to try FIX IT UTLITITIES, and fix all the errors. After that you ssystem should be normal.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
