im running win 95 and i just happened to be checking the systems stats and saw that my system resources were at 66%. i read a post that suggested that i remove unwanted icons from the desktop. i also went through, deleted a ton of tmp, chk, and so on files, cleared out the cookies, internet history, pretty much everything i could think of then emptied the recycle bin. i checked the resources again and it went up to 68%. WHAT THE HELL!!! is there anything else i can do? i tried to eliminate the startup programs but msconfig doesnt work for me, i guess cause its win 95. any help is appreciated.

Although I haven't used this program personally others here have, and it is supposed to work just as well for Win95 as 98:

Here's a good link for reviewing startup files:

68% system resources isn't bad if you've been running for a while, but it would be too low for a fresh boot.

These links will explain what that figure refers to...
