Hi once again...Having just re-installed Win95, I now have this problem when I boot up. My sys runs through the startup screens etc. and then goes to the C prompt without finishing the boot-up . It continues only when I type "win" at the prompt...then all's well. Can anyone tell me how I can fix this so the machine starts win95 uninteruptedly..do I have to edit autoexec or similar files and if so , how?
Thanks folks and so long for now.

Temporarilly rename or move Autoexec.bat and Config.sys to see if they're causing it.
If not,edit Msdos.sys in root directory (you'll have to ATTRIB MSDOS.SYS -S -H -R first),delete the following lines if they exist: (or change the 0s to 1s)
BootWin=0
BootGui=0
Lastly,check for the existance of a WIN.BAT file in root or \Windows,rename or move it.
