Bert and Jody,
I don't know if this will be of any help but I use both sites
below to try to keep my computer software updated.
Both links work pretty well. They both scan your hard drive to
check for needed updates and the both come up with somewhat
The only thing you may not like is, the cnet site has to download
and install a small program on your hard drive. I've had it for
several months and it is, apparently, safe.
Just pay attention to the term of the found updates, some are
updates while others are upgrades. The upgrades are either
time-limited or will cost for purchase of software.
If you've already tried these with no help, sorry, but thay are
handy to have around for a quick check.

cannot find a kernel update via microsoft-windows' main update page
- Hi Beret, Harvey, and Others,
We need to take this to private eMail now or the Off-Topic list.
See below for the sign-up and my comments. I'm sending the two
post from Beret and Harvey, plus this one over there.

broke it? Did it start happening when you installed or upgraded
IE? (Off-Topic list please:)
They were good the other day - I'll check, they might be those
kind that expire so people cannot use direct download links or MS
already changed the links. That's why I gave the WinMag site who
is forever checking MS who is forever changing their links. There
was a separate link for some of the files.
You might try this link and scroll through till you find kernal32:
Choose Windows 95 and Windows 95 in both fields searching by Product:
English Update, try replacing the EN-US with the German pages ;)
Or change the pages to your country when first starting?
Thanks for the info Harvey. Sometimes the updates MS used on the
Win95 would not do anything if it already saw a current or newer
on the drive though and I suspect doing it through the online is
an automatic type thing. WinMag has the same kind of Active Update
You might get the Kernal PowerToys and/or regular PowerToys. One
of them lets you read .cab files off a CD if you do not already
have a means. I think WinZip supports it now. Anyway, I don't
know the cabs, but since a reformat seems to fix the problem,
then that would indicate the files on the CD should fix it if you
can get the right files. I don't think DECOM95 (which is the
main one you want) is on the 95 CD. In fact, read this from
WinMag on CAB files:

installing DCOM95 did it :-).
After saving some 50 file under various conditions today I think I can
make this statement without the need of knocking on wood.
Perhaps a recent re-install of a prety old version of Norton Systemworkd
has been causing the problem. Found a much older version of DCOM95
somehwere in nortons' program-directories. Some DLL's must hav gone out
Next time I know what suspucious things are to look at.
My personal notetab-supportpage is in my personal archives, so you may
delete it as far as I'm concerned.
Jody Thanks again,
And as soon as I can find Notetab Pro on the shelf of some computerstore
in this village called the Netherlands, I will very seriously consider
