http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q154/8/80.asp

The W95inf16.dll, W95inf32.dll, Advpack.dll, and _isetup.exe files are used only during installation and are deleted along with the temporary folder when installation is finished.


Troubleshooting

The W95inf16.dll and W95inf32.dll files do not match, or you have multiple versions of these files on your hard disk. To resolve this problem, follow these steps:


Search your drive for these files and rename or delete all that are found.


Double-click the executable file you downloaded to run the installation again.


hope that helps

Phill,
Did you reinstall after you removed the files?

The W95inf16.dll and W95inf32.dll files do not match, or you have multiple versions of these files on your hard disk. To resolve this problem, follow these steps:
Search your drive for these files and rename or delete all that are found.
Double-click the executable file you downloaded to run the installation again.
You may be running background terminate-and-stay-resident programs (TSRs) or other programs that are causing a problem with the installation. To resolve this problem, follow these steps:
Restart your computer. When you see the "Starting Windows 95" message, press the F5 key to start Windows 95 in Safe mode.
Double-click the executable file you downloaded again to run the installation again.

hope that will help you a little more

Phill,
