When I installed my Win98 upgrade I chose to save my Win95 configuration so that It could be restored.  From your question I assume that you do not have this option.  I believe that windows does not willingly allow you to downgrade 98 to 95 and keep your registry settings.  I will keep an eye on your question to see if someone knows a way to trick 98 into doing this.

No, I was not able to restore the Win95. Your answer did make perfect sense. So I reformated...installed Win95  saved my Win95 configuration in case this situation came up again. I have a greeting card program and several other programs that run fine in Win95 but not Win 98 and am not sure why yet...Thanks for the help.
