I bought a packard bell computer about a year ago.  With it came the Windows 95
companion CD-ROM.  I would like to know if this can be used to re-install Windows 95.  Any information will be appreciated.  Thank You!!!

Check to see if there is a file called setup.exe on the root of the cd.  If there is not, then the answer is no, you cannot which is what I would expect on a companion cd. Packard bell wants you to install from the recovery cd if you want to start over.
