Kerberos is an integral part of Windows XP.  If you upgraded to
Windows XP that is most likely where you obtained a kerberos.dll

Once you upgrade to XP, the vnetbios.vxd file is no longer used.
It is specific to Win9x.

As for COMMAND.COM, you want to use CMD.EXE when running XP.

I was able to work with some of the alternate DOS codes. *.* is the root of everything that is running in the system. I have Virtual fat. that I cannot partition. the The system commands are inacessible. I cannot run COMMAND.COM. the vnetbios.vxd is missing or corrupt. Mysterios unknown hardware and software is being setup. I have a DELL system that DELL diognostics has rendered a non DELL system. If someone will contact me ASAP. I must admit this program is quite amazing. However, I would like my system back.
