A 'quick format' (format c:/q) should suffice. You neglected to say
whether the hardware involved a cpu faster than an intel P233MMX.
Win95 will install ok for CPUs no faster than the AMD K6/2/266 (the
"3DNow!"(tm) series). You'll see problems with the K6/2/300 and faster
chips, which will require the "amdk6upd.exe" patch to be applied.
Of course, you might be in a catch 22 situation if, for whatever
reason, you can't slow the cpu clock down to 266MHz or less, but you can
always google for instructions on how to get round this problem.
Of course, it might simply be due to a problem with the memory. Try
running memtest86 to verify the memory. If you do find errors, try
reseating the modules and test again before looking for replacements.
The other likely source of trouble is the hard disk. It might be an
idea to do a surface scan for bad blocks which, if any are found, can
then be mapped out to avoid causing further problems.
 It's always a good idea to reseat the memory modules in any case but
it might be more useful to run memtest86 first before doing so
regardless of the outcome. It would be more useful to know whether any
intermittent memory errors were due to a poor contact in the slot or
likely to be faulty memory module.
 If any bad blocks are found, especially if there are a large number,
it's worth retesting to confirm whether you are dealing with a 'One Off'
event or an ongoing problem.
