The best thing about a Win95 computer is that this is a perfect scenario 
for blowing away the Win95 installation and replacing with some sort of 
Linux. After all, you're not likely to be able to even consider 
installing some later version of Windows, since it would balk at some 
sort of hardware issue that is unsolvable.

Make sure you save your data files. There will be Linux apps to load 
them, again as opposed to more "advanced" Windows apps.
