ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL STUFF (for Windows95 users)
WinZipWinZip
This program needs no introduction. But for the benefit of those who have yet to try it, WinZip brings the convenience of Windows to the use of ZIP files. TAR, gzip, Unix compress, LZH, ARJ, and ARC files are also supported. WinZip features an intuitive point and click interface for viewing, running, extracting, adding, deleting, and testing files in archives. Also supports decoding of UUE and Base64 files. Optional virus scanning support is included. Essential if you download anything off the internet, for the files are most likely to be compressed in zip format. This is a utility that should be a part of EVERY Windows 95 Explorer.
Catch-UPCatchUP
Catch-UP is a Web-based software updating service that automatically searches for the newest versions of many popular Internet-distributed software applications and hardware drivers. The Catch-UP Scanner helper application runs with your browser to generate a custom list of software updates and corresponding download sites.

iconMicrosoft Windows 95 PowerToys
This freeware add-on for Windows 95 contains a series of "PowerToys"-- UI enhancements for advanced Win95 users-- that can be easily added to your installation of Windows 95. These enhancements were developed by members of the Microsoft Win95 team, and are being made available to Win95 users at no cost. Note that these are not part of any shipping retail product, and therefore are not supported through any official support channels. Use "at your own risk". Definitely worth downloading!!
iconWindows 95 Resource Kit
This is a comprehensive help file that is included in your Windows 95 CD-ROM. If you have the floppy disk version, you can still download it from Microsoft.

Find the file in the following folder on your CD-ROM:
/admin/reskit/helpfile
Look for win95rk.hlp and copy it to your hard drive for easy access.
Be sure to copy the file win95rk.cnt to the same directory you copied the help file to, if you want to have the contents menu as well.

iconWindows 95 Registry FAQ
Try mentioning the word Registry on the Windows 95 Technical Support telephone line, and the support technician that you are speaking to will tell you in no uncertain terms that Microsoft isn't supporting that feature to end users. Besides, they try to convince you that you'll trash your entire system if you so much as attempt to edit one single Registry entry. And yet, it is the one single feature in all of Windows 95 that brings total system control to the user.

The Windows 95 Registry FAQ is Kent Daniel Bentkowski's attempt to fill in a fantastic void of information from Microsoft. So go ahead - download the file!! It won't hurt to learn a little more about the internal plumbing of your system. Besides, it's a help file, and it won't hurt your system a bit if you decide not to try any of the things listed in there.

Until further notice, send an e-mail request to the following address, to receive the Windows 95 Registry FAQ: regeditFAQ@aol.com
