Go to your Control Panel. Open Add/Remove programs. Click Windows setup tab. Un-check the Multimedia box, then click Apply and OK.
Re-boot and using you Win95 CD reverse what you just did. Re-install any multimedia devices. I just had to do this myself because for some mysterious reason some application stole my .avi and .wav associations. I messed with for weeks before going in and re associating the right way.
In multimedia choose to install 6 idems needed:
1.Audio Compression
2.CD Player
3.Media Player
4.Sound Recorder
5.Vedio Compression
6.Volume Control.
You can load what you want, but these will re-associate your
C:\Windows\Mplayer.exe

Opps,
I forgot. I had to re associate the .avi files manually.

Any problems get back with me.
