How to fix the vvinesd.386 error message?

Question

I get an error msg., z:vvinesd.386 device file. What is this device file and what is it from, (program or driver)? If it is not needed, how do I get rid of it,as it is on screen every start up. Press key and it goes away. Also outlook express is very slow opening. I just went on to cable Modem and networked two p/c's to an Linksys router,4 port. I get on line ok on both p/c's. Any help would greatly appreciated.

Thanks,This is a great site. Dave S
