There may be a couple of ways to go about that, depending on your level of ability.
The first way would be to go into your windows registry and delete any keys that call that .vxd.(a virtual device driver). Of course, you should always back up the registry before tinkering with it.
Another way would be to download a program like WinPatrol:http://www.winpatrol.com/winpatrol.html
Once installed, there is a tab that lists all start-up applications. See if there is anything in there that matches the .vxd that you are getting an error about, and disable it there. WinPatrol is a nice program to have running on your system anyway (IMHO)
Another way would be to go into you msconfig and disable it there, buit I am not a fan of disabling apps from there. All that is really doing is blocking the application from trying to start, and doesn't really take care of the problem.
If all else fails, posting a HJT log may help us determine what is causing it to try and start.. it doesn't usually show VXds (that I can think of), but it may help narrow down where the cause may be.
Let us know what you would like to do. :D
