I assume you are using Microsoft Fax, which is supplied with Windows 95.
I would suggest reinstalling that. To do this:
1.) Start Control Panel then Add/Remove Programs
2.) Windows Setup (second tab)
3.) Uninstall (untick) Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Fax
4.) Apply
5.) Now re-install Exchange and Fax, with the same steps.

Thanks! Easy to tell I'm a real newby..frustration level climbs easily! Not sure if this is the same program, as don't seem to be able to work off-line, but at least I now have a functioning fax, so I can live with it!
Until next time:-D
