Win95 may be trying to access/load a file that has been deleted or moved. You'd need to isolate it and fix it. Run msconfig.exe and look through the .ini folders. Be sure that the files being loaded really exist where they are supposed to be.
I know there is a .vxd patch/fix through Microsoft. Search for it in the Knowledge Base. While you are there, look for other articles using Win95 and vxd as search words.
Also look at article Q136255. It deals with just what you seem to have going on and tells how to fix it.

Hi,

Are you using Norton Anti-Virus, or any other anti-virus software? If so, then it could be the cause of your problem. If you have Norton installed, try disabling auto-protect, or follow the instructions in the following article.

Even if you don't have an Anti-virus program, you might want to further investigate any applications that you have set to start-up automatically.

Good Luck
