How do you remove the Inbox icon from the desktop? I am running Symantec's WinFax Pro and do not need it. Also do I have to keep Network Neighborhood on the desktop to use Microsoft's dialup for the internet?

You can remove InBox icon by starting regedit, and remove belove entry:
HKLM,SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\"{00020D76-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}"
In your case 00020D76 could be 00020D75. After this, restart Win95 and delete the changed InBox icon
Network Neighborhood (MSN) icon on desktop can you directly delete by pulling it to recycle bin.
