Maybe a long shot but check whether you have a process called
winmgmt.exe starting up (using msconfig).I experienced no end of bad
shutdowns fatal exceptions etc with this running on my 98 and intially
thought it was the latest version of outpost as the cause.Im not familiar
with 95 so not sure about any shutdown issues though there was some with
98 and a patch made available at windows update site
me
