I am attempting to re-install win 95 to fix some corrupted file.  When I start up setup I get message "Some Control Panel or Device Settings have been changed since you last started windows. Please re-boot and try again."

I have worked around the problem via control panel install new software icon.  I uninstalled the software and reinstalled it.

I still cannot run win 95 setup and I dont know what is still causing the setup failure.  I suspect it is some kind of registry problem.  (I do not have the hours to re-install all my 32 bit software.)  I would like to get rid of what is wrong so it does not become a bigger problem later.

This is being caused by a program in your StartUp folder.  Most likely InControl Tools for a Diamond Video Card (if you are using one).  Disable everything in your StartUp folder first before trying to run Setup.  If you have InControl Tools then that is the only thing you will need to disable because it is what is causing the problem. Aftre Win95 starts, then the InControl Tools program runs and changes things to the custom settings that you have selected so thus the settings have indeed changed since you started Win95.
