any files/components that are missing or corrupt from the original Win95 installation can be re-installed/replaced by the following:

Insert Win95 installation CD and run Setup from within Win95.  
When asked whether to do an install or replace missing or corrupted files, choose the later.

That should do the job.  Unless its a virus problem.

First I tried add/remove components from Control Panel.  This would not add Quick View and sometimes added one component (i.e. Paint) and deleted another (i.e. Word Pad).  I used you suggestion and ran setup.  I wasn't asked whether to install or replace only missing/corrupt files.  I did a custom install (maybe that's what you meant) choosing only to install the applications that were missing.  This worked but forced me to reinstall my display driver and change my Iomega Zip driver to work with Norton Zip Rescue.  Thank you for your help!
