Put the gds32.dll in the Windows\System directory. ComCtl.dll is pretty
much a system file, but for Windows 95 it should be
ComCtl32.dll(ComCtl31.dll is for backwards compatibility). Also, if it's
not done yet, get your hands on DCOM95 version 1.3 from Microsoft and
install it, this sometimes fixes some errors. But, I'm not sure in your
case, but it's worth a try.

Also, from where did you get Notepad to install on that system. If it's
from a newer version of Windows, this could be related to your ComCtl.dll
