    Folks,

    When reinstalling win 95 from the cab files, do you lose your Dial up settings, favourites, bookmarks, etc.

    There are some important Money files as well as other significant files on the C: drive. Are any of these affected, or does it just recopy the Win 95 files?

    Will I need to reinstall the drivers for the new monitor and trackball, or do they stay intact?

    thanks,

    If you re-install into the same directory, you shouldn't lose any files or settings, especially from programs like Money. You may need driver disks for some of the hardware. Depending on which version of Internet Explorer you are running, you might want to take a look to see if you can uncheck that from re-installing as it will cause version problems.

    Sounds like a plan. My windoze skills are getting a little rusty.
    Thanks
