UNINSTALLING WINDOWS 95

=======================

During Setup, you have the option of saving your system files so

that you can uninstall Windows 95 later. If you want to be able to

uninstall Windows 95 later, choose Yes. Setup will save your system

files in a hidden, compressed file. If you don't need to be able to

uninstall Windows 95 later, choose No.

You will not see this Setup option if:

- You are upgrading over an earlier version of Windows 95.

- You are installing to a new directory.

- You are running a version of MS-DOS earlier than 5.0.

NOTE:The uninstall files must be saved on a local hard drive. You

can't save them to a network drive or a floppy disk. If you have

multiple local drives, you will be able to select the one you want

to save the uninstall information on.

To uninstall Windows 95 and completely restore your computer to its

previous versions of MS-DOS and Windows 3.x, carry out the following

procedure:

1. Click the Start button, point to Settings, and then click

Control Panel.

2. Double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon.

3. On the Install/Uninstall tab, click Windows 95, and then click

Remove.

Or, if you are having problems starting Windows 95, use your startup

disk to start your computer, and then run UNINSTAL from the startup

disk.

NOTE: The uninstall program needs to shut down Windows 95. If there is

a problem with this on your computer, restart your computer and press

F8 when you see the message "Starting Windows 95." Then choose Command

Prompt Only, and run UNINSTAL from the command prompt.

If Windows 95 is running and you want to remove the uninstall files to

free up 6 to 9 MB of disk space, carry out the following procedure:

1. Click the Start button, point to Settings, and then click

Control Panel.

2. Double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon.

3. On the Install/Uninstall tab, click Old Windows 3.x/MS-DOS System

Files, and then click Remove.

You will no longer be able to uninstall Windows 95.
