I guess that any Series 1 or series 2 will work on Win95.

Winapp2.ini, if I get the time to figure out how to accomplish whst you recommend, I will but, on the other hand you have no idea about the kids destructive power!!!

I once got version 1 for a win98 virtual machine. I think you should be able to get it from file hippo's ccleaner page

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

would running a Virtual Machine and installing Win95 in that be a viable alternative?

Oracle VirtualBox is good - and free.

but i reckon you'd come across driver issues for the sound, video (hell - probably everything) cards.

Backup now & backup often.

Win 95 loads fine with Vbox as long as you have what you need (boot disc and install disc/code) I made a 95 just to see the changes lol

If you're looking for the old version of any software, it makes sense to look here first: http://www.oldversion.com/ 

 

*The link works if you hit "Windows", or enter "CCleaner" in the search field.

 

Edit: I visited the forums at msfn.org and found the last version that was compatible with Win98SE was CCleaner v 2.36.1233, so use that as a starting point and work backwards for Win95.

Thanks all

 

Downloaded ver. 1.x.x (dont remember exactly) and it works just amazingly fine on win95

 

The higher versions, above the one I got, install but the kernel32 error comes up cause the higher versions of cclean, even though the description says for "All Windows", require windows ver. above Win95

Don't know why it just doesn't come out and say that.

 

Thanks again and if I were a bit tech savvy and had the time, I would take the advice of some of you and try running a VM.

 

Regards

Also for 95 and 98 you may need unicows.dll in the program (ccleaner) folder
