I recently upgraded to Win95, from 3.11(wfw). Device manager
indicates that all hardware is functioning properly, it acknowledges my a: drive, and I can open a program, say Word, and from there open a file from a floppy, but when I try to access a: from Control Panel or Explorer, the system
simply freezes.  From the Dos prompt I can get a directory reading.

or try to delete the floppy from the device manager and reinstall thru add new hardware.
