    I am useing windows95, as the senior team know I have posted several times, and hope fully some one can help out once again.
    A lot of problems with this windows95 and I hope to get a new pc some time this yr, when I can get the money, but well the problem it was slow so several months ago I bought memory and put it in my self as I posted it when I did it and the pc ran pretty good for a while a little more then the turtle but not close at all to the rabbit, well now since Nov, I have wanted to take my only pc out with my 22 rifel. But as I stated this is the only one I bought this a yr ago Nov to learn on and I was took because the CO. said it was new. well this so called windows95 keeps freezing a lot,a lot of noise is comming from the hard drive I think when turned on and going to another site,very little noise if any at all sitting still,it also crashes often, very slow at boot ups, and when I promp it to shut down it seems as to heck with me and does what it wants as if it has its own mind, I finally get mad and shut it down by the butten and I know I'm not suppose to do that. Its a pen2 333,now has 192 meg of memory, I know it has a lot of problems and hope some one can help a little if any!! Thank you Holly:rolleyes:

    It should be using Win98, FE or SE, or WinMe. Have you got the Win95 install CD that came with it?
