We have win95 on our new computer, it keeps asking for the cd to be put in to continue setup, the guy that built our computer gave us a burnt copy, we live in salt lake we bought it in fresno, we took the computer to a shop here, he kept our win96 cd, we want to know if we can download win95 from the internet to complete our setup?

Theoretically, you could do it.  Legally, however, you cannot.  If someone posted Win95 on the Internet they would be violating the Microsoft license agreement and copyright.  Why don't you go back to the dealer who kept your win96 [sic] cd and get it back?  If it wan't yours, you should go and buy a copy.

just take a look in c:\windows\options and see if there are any cab files there.. or do a search for *.cab on your hdd and point windows to them when windows ask for the files?
