    What errors are you having? You can find startup items in 95 in acouple different spots..
    1.Click the start button go to programs then startup.
    2.Registry.Be VERY CAREFULL about deleting items from here as you can really mess up Windows. Here is where you would need to go HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrenVersion\Run
    3.Autoexec.bat and Config.sys located in your root directory which should be C:\
    Hope this helps.Will check back here later to see if you have posted the error messages you are getting.

    Go with the app Big Booger mentioned..You can remove the startup items i mentioned located in the registry without having to go into the registry yourself..Something which would be preferred.
