Try to do the reinstall from dos. When booting, as it says starting windows 95, hit the F8 key. Select command prompt only. You need to have dos cd-drivers loaded if your windows 95 is on cd-rom. Then run the setup program from the cd or the first floppy of your set.

I think the best way is to start all over again, backup the reformat - or delete (takes too long)- ensuring a clean, new system.. but be sure to backup your omportant files first.
