Can you define your environment for us?  How much RAM, disk space, what autoexec.bat, config.sys have, etc?  Also, what version of Win95, and was it ever installed Ok before or is this a new install.

The more you can give us, the better the solution.

To restore the registry follow these steps:

1.boot your pc, when it displays the message "starting windows 95..." Press "F8".
2.Select "system symbol/prompt only".
3. Then change to the Windows directory. i.e. "cd C:\windows" (enter).
4. Write the following commands and press ENTER after each one.

         attrib -h -r -s system.dat
         attrib -h -r -s system.da0
         attrib -h -r -s user.dat
         attrib -h -r -s user.da0

Note: system.da0 and user.da0 have the number ( 0 ) zero.

Next write:
       
         copy system.da0 system.dat
         copy user.da0 user.bak

5. Re start your PC and the registry will be rebuild.
