From technet article Q146904:-
CAUSE
This error can occur if the Fonts folder is removed from the Windows folder.
 
RESOLUTION
To resolve this situation, you must reinstall Windows 95.
 
MORE INFORMATION
The Fonts folder contains TrueType fonts (files with .ttf extensions) and Raster fonts (files with .fon extensions). Raster fonts are bitmap fonts supplied in different sizes for specific display resolutions. If the .fon files are missing, Windows 95 cannot load successfully.
