When you close the Network dialog box, networking files may be copied even though you have not made any changes. This behavior is caused by two .dll files (Secur32.dll and Svrapi.dll) installed by Personal Web server. The versions of these files include the following:

Personal Web Server

   Secur32.dll   25,088 bytes   08/19/960  09:47 AM
   Svrapi.dll    13,312 bytes   08/28/96   05:14 PM

The correct versions of these files are as follows:

Windows 95

   Secur32.dll   25,088 bytes   07/11/95   09:50 AM
   Svrapi.dll    13,312 bytes   07/11/95   09:50 AM

Windows 95 OEM Service Release 2 (OSR2)

   Secur32.dll   25,088 bytes   08/24/96   11:11 AM
   Svrapi.dll    13,312 bytes   08/24/96   11:11 AM

NOTE: This behavior can also occur when you install the Dial-Up Networking 1.2 upgrade.


Replace the two .dll files with the original versions included with Windows 95. To do so, use the appropriate method for your version of Windows.

Windows 95

  1. In Control Panel, double-click Network. (To access Control Panel, Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.)
  2. Close the Network dialog box without making any changes.
  3. When you are prompted whether to keep the existing versions of the files, click No.

NOTE: If a Version Conflict dialog box prompting you whether to keep the existing files does not appear, use the steps in the "Windows 95 OSR2" section of this article to resolve the issue.

  1. Restart your computer.

Windows 95 OSR2

  1. Extract the Secur32.dll and Svrapi.dll files from your original source files to a temporary folder on the hard disk.

    For information about using the Extract tool, see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    129605 How to Extract Original Compressed Windows Files

  2. Restart the computer. When you see the "Starting Windows 95" message, press F8, and then choose Safe Mode Command Prompt Only on the Startup menu.
  3. Copy the files you extracted in step 1 from the temporary folder to the Windows\System folder.
  4. Restart the computer normally.
