32 Bit HDD Access

I have installed win95 upgrade version on my 420mb Seagate Hdd. Unfortunately I get "compatibility mode paging" problems which result in DOS mode compatibility being run. I have renamed my config.sys and autoexec.bat files and tried without them although this does not help. Seagate says that their drives are supported and don't need drivers. Do I have any options to get 32bit access running short of reinstalling win95 (will even this help??)? Even a reinstallation is a possibility if necessary. This problem really cripples my computers speed so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Among many possibilities, the cause I've seen most often for this problem is a virus.  If this is not the problem, check out:
