computer keeps asking for motvcd.vxd file

computer keeps asking for motvcd.vxd file

computer keeps asking for motvcd.vxd file

Friends: I am running Windows 98SE. I had a Motorola SM56 modem which I uninstalled years ago. Now my computer freezes on my wallpaper page with the arrow and hourglass cursors stationary. I cannot use my keyboard or mouse. In safe mode I get this message telling me I am missing the file motvcd.vxd. I searched for all references to "motorola" and deleted them. Then I ; out the reference to motvcd.vxd in system.ini, yet the problem is still there. Any ideas how I can fix this? Thanks.

RE: computer keeps asking for motvcd.vxd file

 you said you uninstalled this  years ago ? did you remove the hardware as well?
also  if your computer  keeps  freezing
 if yo go in safe mode it should let you by pass the error message  if it will not you may have to do a  system repair
but try this  below first  
you can check your resources and see  what you have
go to start then settings then control panel then click on system then click on the performance tab then how much memeory do you have and  how much percent
