 þ Does your Windows 95 hang after disconnecting from the Net?
Try deleting vnbt.386 from your c:\windows\system directory and see if the problem goes away. This works only for Windows 95 systems.

vnbt.386 is a "legacy file" needed by older versions of Windows such as Windows 3.1.
It is not required by Windows 95 and can be safely removed.
