Yeah, the name of the program might help. The version of 95 might help us too.

Owmainapp.exe? Nothing on google about that. Check the spelling.

That's probably the file that starts it and not the software name.

Ubuntu Cheeta, Ubuntu !

I suspect that this program has started reacting badly to some change that you have introduced on all the affected machines. If so it will be a hard nut to crack unless you can think of something you did just before the problem first came along. Its probably something that the original programmer could not have anticipated.

If the company that wrote the program still exists it would be worth you contacting them, as the answer may be to modify the program.

If it has a commercial name then please let us know what it is, in the hope that we can identify it and somhow fathom it out.

If it is a DOS based program it might run if you shut down to MS-DOS and run the program from there.
