Very old questions
  1. Some programs in Windows95 load at boot time, while they
    are neither in WIN.INI, nor in Startup. How is it possible ?

  2. How can I add entries to Start/Settings and Start/Find menus ?

  3. Is there a way to embed a formfeed on a Web page ?

  4. What is NNRP protocol ? Is it different from NNTP ?

  5. Launching Internet Explorer from Windows MS-DOS prompt always
    opens a new instance of IE. Is there a way to load a new document
    into existing browser ? I need this because I have a DOS program
    that generates HTML file and then I'd like to see it in browser
    window automatically.

  6. Is there a way to speed up loading of IE 3.0 ? Like
    maybe disabling some plugins or Java support ?

  7. How can I add/remove items from Right click/New/Shortcuts menu ?

  8. Why do some links cause opening of new instance of Internet
    Explorer ?

  9. Is it possible to disable JavaScript status line ticker ?

  10. In Windows95, when I do NET USE, sometimes these entries
    show along with normal drive mappings. What can they be ?
    OK \\PETERSMRKTG\0067FE00
    OK \\PETERSMRKTG\C0FA3D3C

  11. There are .PIF files in c:\windows under Windows95, but no PIF Editor.
    How can I edit them ?

1. Program (driver) can be loaded from registry, for example
local_machine/system/currentcontrolset/services/vxd/agent 95/agent95.vxd
loads this VXD at startup.
Registry Search program can be used to find these renegade drivers.

A(1): These programs are specified in registry.
Either use System Policy Editor, or search
registry for Run and RunOnce keys in
Registry Editor.

11. All you need is right-click on PIF-file, then click "Properties" -- you'll have access to all PIF settings.
BTW, the PIF file in terms of Win95 is exactly the same that "Shortcut" to DOS program.
