Try using a scandisk.exe before the reinstall.
If this doesn't help try: "install /p v" for verfication of your win95 files.....

All system files are ok and there are no disk errors.

the folder program Files is named progra~2 in dos mode...Thats because you somehow managed to "loose" the MS table hack for long filenames....
