I use win95 and for the past few weeks when trying to use IE, it will either freeze when trying to go to a new page, or I will get the 'illegal error" message quoting user.exe fault. This often happens when trying to goin to my toolbar to save a page, or send it. I have tried repairing IE, no luck. Do I re download IE? Would that help. It is so annoying. Taken me many tries to just do this message.
The version of IE that you will find on cover disks will be IE6. I don't think that this will work with Windows 95. Hopefully someone can point you in the direction of a site to download an earlier version.
