I have a Windows 95 machine.   The printing system was not working coreectly, so I decided to re-install win95.   Now, every time I re-boot windows 95, the program called Mircosoft File Transfer comes up.  I must exit this program before I can use the modem.   The program name is \windows\filexfer.exe.   How can I stop this program from coming up every time?

Three ways,
1. In your win.ini, check and see if you are loading 'filexfer.exe". if so, rem that line and re-boot.
If no luck,
2. FIRST SAVE YOU CURRENT REGISTRY: THEN, search you registry for that file, and search "RUN" or just go to it at:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run], see if it's telling that file to run, if yes, export that key for safe keeping then delete the value under modify. Reboot again.
===
Last or maybe first because you may see the answer here go to:
http://www.microsoft.com/kb/default.asp
choose win95 at step 1, at step 5 enter "File Transfer". 39 articles will come up, that you are more qualified to absorb.

We'll work from there.
