                                Hi fellow netters




                I've just started installing Windows95 software on an old
PC, which previously had Windows 3.1 and Windows NT for Workgroups on it,
i've deleted all the old junk files and have edited out Autoexec.bat and
config.sys files, deleted all the application files etc...done the Windows
95 installation on it, but however found out that some of the old files
were still on the Hard disk, thay must be hidden files etc..


                                        Could someone tell me what the
procedure is when installing Windows 95 software on to a old PC and how to
get rid of all hidden files and is it a good idea to get rid of the old
Auto exec and config files etc.


                                                Since i am doing this
installation for the first time , i would appreciate  all the help i could
get.....thanks in advance......indy
