    Hey all at Wilders,

    (sorry for reposting this again, but i mstill not sure what this relates to? i have seen on some computers but not on others very strange. I guess what im asking is if someone could confirm this should be there, sorry again S)

    Recently i used msconfig and while using the system configuration utility,
    I clicked on the WIN.INI tab and at the bottom of the row of ticked items there was a ticked box for 'Internal'.
    I clicked on the plus sysbol next to Internal and got the following:

    Internal

    Device=(this had lots of E's, numbers and characters next to it)
    Install=(this had ten numbers next to it)


    My questions are what does this relate to? what is it for? Should i disable it?

    Really hope for a reply.

    Thank you Sam

    To give you a precise answer, we need to know what version of Windows that you are using.

    A minimum Windows 2000 WIN.INI file looks something like this:
    Code:
    ; for 16-bit app support
    [fonts]
    [extensions]
    [mci extensions]
    [files]
    [Mail]
    MAPI=1
    [MCI Extensions.BAK]
    asf=MPEGVideo2
    asx=MPEGVideo2
    ivf=MPEGVideo2
    m3u=MPEGVideo2
    mp2v=MPEGVideo
    mp3=MPEGVideo2
    mpv2=MPEGVideo
    wax=MPEGVideo2
    wm=MPEGVideo2
    wma=MPEGVideo2
    wmv=MPEGVideo2
    wmx=MPEGVideo2
    wvx=MPEGVideo2
    wpl=MPEGVideo
    [Solitaire]
    Options=95
    
    You could back up the WIN.INI and delete the sections that you don't want. Then test the system.

    My Windows XP Home system has pretty much the same entries as my Windows 2000 system. There are two sections that are different, [Compatibility32], and [Compatibility95]. I would say delete the [Internal] section that you have if you are worried about it. But personally I think that it is harmless. Could you post your WIN.INI file?
