My machine on startup gives an error message saying " Wrong
version of run time DLL".

There are also some items on my task bar that do not show up any more.

Why is this happening all of a sudden, what does it mean, and how do I fix it?

You may have installed a program the over-wrote some of your .dll files without giving you the option to choose whether or not you wanted to do that.  Or you may be running an older program that does not recognize the 32 bit version of the .dll file that it needs from your system.  

I would suggest that you download the latest 32 bit runtime files in case yours were replaced with older versions.  If you don't already have the Service Pack for Windows 95 installed, I would do so to get these proper runtime files - if you do have it already, reinstalling it should fix your problems.  If it is an older or DOS program that is causing this problem, your best bet would be to either avoid using it in Windows 95 or set up your computer with a dual boot  so you can choose to run Windows 3.1 at the start up if you want.

The Service Pack is available from :
