Additionaly to #1 answer.
Delete win 95 swap file, all w95 application, but not data. Be sure you delete Word for 95 not Word for NT.
Possible you nee reformat FAT32 partition.

Your best bet is to reinstall WINNT fresh, but only after backing up any data files that the user may want to keep. If you're successful in uninstalling WIN95, you may run into problems later down the road with the system or some application lookingfor the WIN95 OS. It sounds like more time and work now, but over time it's the best way to do it. Good luck.
