Not certain how XP Pro could revert back to Windows 95. Did you install XP Pro ON TOP of Windows 95 when you first installed it? If so WHEN did you do this?

Have you tried to restore your system?, maybe can help you.

Wouldn't recommend that yet...we need LOTS more info. To have a computer go back...4 operating systems by itself is really almost unheard of so using system restore may not be an option, there was no system restore in Windows 95 so if the computer actually DID go clear back to 95 there wouldn't be any System Restore. We need to hear from the poster FIRST with lots more information.

See if you can do this really quickly:

Download FindWPP.zip and RightClick on FindWPP.zip and Extract the FindWPP folder to your Desktop.
-- Inside the folder, you'll see RunThis.bat - DoubleClick it and let it run for as long as it takes.
A log should pop up - please post that for me.

PP :)
