vim configuration (.vimrc)


When ever i open vim, i get the error that the following error:

E484: Can't open file/abcd/configFiles/vim/syntax/syntax.vim

There was a .vimrc file in my home folder that i have removed.

Still i keep getting the same error.

Presently in my home folder there is no .gvimrc or .vimrc file.

But still i keep getting the same error.

I am not too sure where this file is mentioned.

Background info:
The SHELL has been changed from tcsh to bash
Earlier i had created a .vimrc file in tcsh, i have removed the .vimrc in bash SHELL.
