    Active Desktop?

    I recall that you used to be able to download Active Desktop, to convert your Windows 95 desktop. Is this download still available, if so - WHERE?!

    Assistance is appreciated.

    If you have IE5x's installation files on HD, run this line from the Start/ run line in W95:

    Path\ie5setup.exe /c:"ie5wzd /e:IE4Shell WIN /I:Y"

    vass -> Because I do. :-)

    Thanks for the advice guys! I couldn't properly get IE 4.0 installed (go figure), so I used BFlurie's advice.
