Yes, If you are running Win95 you should install all the patches. They address more than just year 2000 issues, for example: leap year problems. Since it apears you are running "new" pc's Win98SE or ME or even Win2k would probably be a better choice of OpSys

If you are getting new PCs with Windows 95 already preloaded as the operating system, then the WIN95Y2K patch should have already be installed by the PC manufacturer. To confirm this, you should see the Y2K patch installed in Add/Remove Programs inControl Panel.

You do not need to install the WIN95Y2K patch on 98 machines.
