After these VxDs are loaded, and just before Win.com loads the shell, the System.cb file is discarded and the original System.ini file is restored. If no System.ini file is found to restore, an empty System.ini file is created. The Winstart.bat file is not processed.
Windows 95 now uses the original registry settings and System.ini and Win.ini files.
This effectively bypasses the [Boot] and [386Enh] sections of the System.ini file and disables all the Windows 95 protected-mode devices listed in Device Manager. Also, Windows 95 does not run programs listed on the "Load=" and "Run=" lines in the [Windows] section of the Win.ini file.
Note that although the [Boot] section of the System.ini file is bypassed, the "shell=" and "drivers=" lines in the [Boot] section are processed.
The shell resizes the desktop to a resolution of 640 x 480.
