when i try to reinstall win95, to add missing files, it creates a new directory, called old files, or microsoft 3, 4 or 5, where it plunks my programs. it then does supposedly a reinstall, after which it complains because it cannot find norton antivirus, or cleansweep. i then have to reinstall norton and gradually delete the extra files. i installed office 97,and the msn cd that came with it. once again it installed a directory called oldprograms, put norton and cleansweep there, and now has lost the ability to start paintbrush. i would like to reinstall windows,but am afraid of winding up with an oldoldprograms directory, or more trouble. i want paintbrush back! BTW, MSN never came back either.
