Well, This has happened to us also.  The reasons are as mysterious as
God's Plan. (or Bill Gate's Plan, whatever is more holey).  I suggest
you locate the "windows" directory and click "delete". Then reload from
scratch.  (Reloading Win95 without deleting the whole thing will not
work). Too bad you'll have to re-install all your applications, but
that's life. (no... that's Met Lif... Never mind)

p.s.  Oh yes, be sure to pray to the God(s) AND knock on wood when you
do this.  (It can't hurt!)
