I just reinstalled Win95 on a system that had a reg error and told me to reinstall.  Everything seem to be work OK except mouse.  I can click and double click on files and folder, right click to bring up a menu, but whenever I try to drag a file the icon doesn't move.  Also, if I select copy from a menu when I move to a destination directory the paste isn't enabled.  Is this a setting or something or am I going to end up reformatting and starting from the beginning.

Drag and Drop is a function of OLE.  Re-install all the service packs and patches you had on Win95 before you reinstalled Windows.  Download and install the OLE patch from M$.
