    I've had problems with Win98 not restarting when I click that option though
    it does shut off and will restart to MS DOS. So I went to the Startup Menu
    and picked the step-by-step confirmation option to isolate which vxd might
    be responsible(I had read that this procedure can be used for this
    particular issue). Apparently, its's the vnetbios.vxd which is causing this
    as I discovered when saying "no" to having it run during the PC's booting
    up.

    Is it then OK to delete or rename this vxd followed by a re-download so as
    to correct this issue?

    False alarm!(well, not entirely)..........

    Doing a little research I discovered that I simply needed to delete the file
    in the Registry, reboot, and that solved it.
