   Avoid running these classes of Win 3.1 apps in Win95 for these
   reasons:
     * Communication (Tend to replace Win95 COMM.DRV and defeat TAPI)
     * Printing Systems (Waste of memory)
     * Virus checkers (Can misinterpret 32-bit components)
     * Disk utilities (Particularly undeleters and such that rely on real
       mode disk access)
     * Back up programs (No long filename support)
