Unless you have a dual-boot setup where you can choose during startup which operating system you want to run, Windows 98 overwrites Windows 95, and replaces the Windows 95 with the updated files There maybe a few files still labeled Windows 95 in you Add/Remove list, but they are essentially a part of the new Windows 98 OS There is no way to uninstall Windows 95 or Windows 98, unless you reformat your hard drive, and reinstall the operating system that you want to use, along with all of the other programs that you want In short, you have to clean your hard drive and start all over again Isn't there a song about starting all over again?
