I have installed the windows 2000 professional 120-days evaluation copy on a windows 95 pc.  How do I go about uninstalling this evaluation copy and bring back the previous windows 95 OS.

Go to add Remove programs control panel.  Look for an option under there.

I did that but did not see anything.  I went to  Add/Remove programs and Administrative Tool and have not found anything to remove the win 2000 120 days evaluation os.  What am I to look for?

Have Windows 95 boot disk ready (can be made from Add/Remove programs>startup disk)

1. Boot from floppy
2. Delete \WINNT
3. Delete boot.ini and ntldr and ntdetect.com from root directory.  Might be hidden.
4. Type "sys C:" from the floppy

El fin.
