|The "slowness" that you often see in later versions of Windows 95 is directly related to specific dll files. For some stupid reason, Microsoft decided that eye candy was more important than performance when they unleashed Internet Explorer 4.0. [Boy, how some things never change these days!] Specifically, dlls like COMCTL32.DLL cause the "animation" that you see when using the scroll bar in large directories in Windows Explorer. As long as you do not "upgrade" COMCTL32.DLL beyond version 4.70 or so, you'll maintain the snappy performance (and stability) you are accustomed to seeing in Windows 95a.|
BTW, if you install Windows 95 C, you can very easily abort the installation process of IE 4, and maintain version 3 if you like. Just ignore the prompts for the IE 4 installation, and reboot cleanly. It won't force you to install it. :) :) Of course the age-old hacks to layout.inf and setuppp.inf can prevent any IE from ever appearing whatsoever. Those hacks are legal now, btw, ever since the anti-trust case.
