Default Windows 95 reinstall

Hi,

I have an old computer (windows 95) . I just want to delete EVERYTHING on the hard drive and install 95 again. How to do that?

I am computer novice, so I can do that by myself or call a computer technician? I have windows 95 CD and other floppys like CD drive installer, Atopi/CDrom drive etc etc

thanks, heg

Windows 95 Version B ?

What to do next? just run that boot95.exe?

95 original will do

when you execute it, it will write to a floppy, so put a floppy in and then restart and boot from it

if you just reinstall 95, all the files will be deleted.
