My win 95 is acting strange when I boot.  ie. sometimes I get windows explorer and no desktop.  Can I reinstall win 95 without losing all of my programs.  If so, How do I do it?

Of course a backup is always advisable before reinstalling your OS (just in case).  

To do it, just drop the CD-ROM in the drive and go to start - run.  In the box, type d:setup.exe (where d is the letter of your cd-romn drive.)

Good luck.
