Part of the Sygate Personal Firewall. teefer.vxd is located in "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\" on Windows 95/98/ME.

Can you start in safe mode, stop the firewall if it is Sygate, look for the option to stop it loading at start up then see if it windows loads normally

It is in safe mode but I have no idea how to stop Sygate from loading. I'm always open for instructions!

Well, I went for the step-by-step at start up, got to the TEEFER part and seleceted NO. Windows has started up.

I guess the question is how to fix that TEEFER part! Ummmmm, but I might need to wait till I got the other part fixed first though!!

If you can start in safe mode with networking, Sygate should open

Sorry about that, in safe mode, can you click start then run, type msconfig then press enter, click start up, remove the ticks for Sygate, click apply and reboot to see if it loads

The TEEFER thing is brand new. I thought maybe that might be from some of the items I removed. Dan was giving instructions on what to delete and said do not restart computer. I had the problem and had to restart. At restart I got TEEFER notice for first time.

Yes, I have important things on HD.

I have Compaq's QuickRestore - it's their version of software install CD.

No, this was factory refurb. Came with their own do-it-all CD. It has Win98 software on it though.

The Selective QuickRestore CD allows -
Full Restore - returns to original preinstalled software state, reformats your hard drive
Typical Restore - reinstalls your basic Compaq drivers and applications without reformatting your hard drive
Custom Restore - allows you to select which Compaq drivers or applications you want to reinstall without reformatting your hard drive
