    I have Windows 95 Version 4.00.950a. I have a Pentium Pro, 166 MHz machine.

    Can I do any upgrades to my Windows 95 or is it not worth it on my machine?

    If I can upgrade - can I do it and preserve my installed programs and data? I don't want to have to uninstall/reinstall all my "stuff"!

    Thanks

    You could upgrade to win98 if you have enough ram, should have at least 64 meg or more. If you do the upgrade version you shouldn't lose anything although there where some programs that where a problem running on 98 that ran fine on 95

    Tad slow but it should be better than 95.

    You may want to consider a new machine as prices are low at present but that's just my opinion.

    I wouldn't try to put winme/etc on it.

    I run a pro 166 at work with 48meg of ram with 98SE and it's slow but better than 95 was.

    Course this is just my opinion

    That sounds like good advice. I do have 64MB Ram.

    Do you know if I need to go buy the upgrade, or is it available as a download? If so, where?

    Thank you again.
