  • error invalid VDD

    I get this error message sometimes installing software and using the internet.
    Error: virtual device drivers. VDD
    VDD format in the registry is invalid
    What does it mean and how do I fix it? I am new to w2k pro.

    Have a look in the Event Viewer (in ControlPanel --> Administration Tools) and post what the error messages are.

    What software are you trying to install when you get these messages?

      Thanks for replying to my post. The error messages are: Policy Agent, DCOM, cdrom,
      Service Control Manager. I think I was installing FireFox 2.0. I believe DCOM and Service Control Manger errors were around the time I was installing. Some of the installs of other programs did not mount (S andra Sisoft).
      There was a ton of Warnings for MrxSmb and severall warnings of Dncache. Other warning were for print (FireFox), wmi, serial.

      When I try to update windows I get (with IE or FireFox ) I get an Error was created by (IE or Firefox) and will closed by windows. I still can get windows updated by either program by navigating tru windows site and occasionally direct update by clicking on windows update in each browser. I also removed a lot of trojans that were associated with IE during the update process.
      Sorry for such along post , but I am new to w2k pro and new to posting.
