Take comfort in that you are not alone There are 83000 references for VFAT on the MSN web site.

Vfat is the File Allocation Table for Windows 95 Windows 98 uses FAT 16, Windows 2000 uses FAT 32 and NTFS, NT 4.0 uses NTFS FAT is the way your operating system stores files and data on your hard drive so it knows where to access what.ie Like a library index reference file for book or file cabinets used by people.

You can read more information and get a driver to fix certain problems if you use the internet from: http://www.dsteiner.com/products/software/os2/vfat.htm I am impressed you are able to run a computer with 1MB of memory and successfully using Windows 95 If it is not broke they say do not fix it, right! With new software being memory intense and the fact computers do wear out as with anything they get old ( 11 years to our 1 year) you may need to consider upgrading,adding more memory, or harddrive space to stay problem free and continue to enjoy your computing experiance Hope this helps! Good Luck!
