Okay. The comp it working fine it seems. But I get a couple messages at startup which is really annoying. It started doing this after the following occurred:

I installed McAfee Firewall (VScan is already on) and it froze up my comp everytime I uninstalled and reinstalled it. So I was forced to uninstall it permenantly. Now on start up, I get two messages...

Cannot find device file that may be needed to run Windows or a Windows application.

The Windows registry or SYSTEM.INI file refers to this device file, but the device file no longer exists.

If you deleted this file on purpose, try uninstalling the associated application using it's uninstall or Setup program.

If you still want to use the application associated with this device file, try reinstalling the application to replace the missing file.

MpfBocks.VxD

Press a key to continue_


I press a key and then this comes up:

Invalid VxD dynamic link call from MPFIREWL(01) + 60000D71 to device "347f" service 1.

Your Windows configuration is invalid. Run the Windows Setup program again to correct this problem.

To continue running Windows press Y or ENTER. To quit the current program press N. If you continue to continue running Windows, you system may become unstable. Do you want to continue?

Press Y for Yes or N for No.


I press ENTER or Y and continue to Windows normally after that. What do you recommend A) To get rid of these messages. And B) If possible, to get Firewall installed right eventually, so that it doesn't freeze my comp. A is priority, just getting rid of the messages on boot up, but B would be nice.

Thanx in advance. You guys do a good job. Hehe. I've been here a couple times in the past. Everytime I seem to learn something, which is good. <_< Later, mates.

Um...I don't mean to be a pain, mate, but aren't I supposed to have somebody read the log thing I put up and see what they can see? <_<

I'm having the same problem after uninstalling McAfee Personal Firewall--can't reinstall/uninstall to see if it will fix the problem, either, because my subscription has expired (have a new router with firewalls). I'm running Win98SE. When I do a search for the mpfbocks.vxd, nothing even shows up--thought I could find it and delete it. I also uninstalled the firewall automatically, then went through all the manual uninstallations under safe mode. The first couple of times I booted up after uninstalling, it automatically went to safe mode and wouldn't boot to normal mode until I restored the registry. But I still get those same messages every time I boot up, and it really slows things down. I posted on the McAfee site, but no response yet. Has anyone found a fix for this yet? Sure would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Okay, on the techguy.org site I found something that worked for me. I had already uninstalled the firewall. Go under C:\windows\system, find the mpfbocks.vxd file, right-click and delete it. Then run regedit, highlight My Computer on the left, click Edit, then Find. Type in mpfbocks.vxd and click Find Now. Delete anything you see having to do with mpf. I found three on the right (one was just mpfbock listed just above mpfbock.vxd) and two folders on the left (found while deleting the last one the search had found on the right). If it has mpf on it, it's McAfee firewall. Boots up just fine now. Hope this helps someone because it sure is frustrating.
