This article was previously published under Q114363


After you install MS-DOS 6.21 Upgrade, you may have incorrect icons in the Microsoft Tools group in Windows or Windows for Workgroups.


Setup does not correctly create the Microsoft Tools group if the MS-DOS system that you are upgrading contains Microsoft Anti-Virus for Windows, Microsoft Backup, and Microsoft Backup for Windows, and you select the following options in MS-DOS 6.21 Upgrade:
    No Anti-virus
    No Undelete
    Keep Existing Backup
After Setup is complete, the Microsoft Tools group contains icons for both Microsoft Anti-Virus for Windows and Microsoft Backup for Windows even though Setup removed the Microsoft Anti-Virus for Windows program files.


To correct this problem, delete the Microsoft Anti-Virus for Windows icon.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in MS-DOS Upgrade Setup version 6.21. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
