Whenever I boot my computer, I get an error message stating "Unable to register control panel".  I click OK and everything is apparently normal - just a nuisance.  Any ideas?  I have reinstalled Win95 - but still get the error.

When you reinstall Windows95 you will first need to DELTREE the Windows directory.
Just reinstalling will not remove or overwrite corrupt registry settings which is the problem you are facing.
