The file is part of the Winsock 2 Update.

Go to http://www.microsoft.com/windows95/downloads/default.as...
for the Winsock 2 Update for Win 95, and the Year 2000 Update for Winsock 2.

Winsock 2:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows95/downloads/contents/W...

Read all the info on the web page, and all the links.
Also linked on that page, under Recommended Updates- Networking,
is the Year 2000 Update for Winsock2, which must be installed afterwards:

Microsoft DUN 1.3 and Winsock2 Year 2000 Update
http://www.microsoft.com/windows95/downloads/contents/W...

I would be wondering why you are getting the error whenever you try to download something, however.

Update your anti-virus app and then run a full-system virus scan.

Use CWShredder, the CoolWeb removal tool, available here:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloads31.html
http://aumha.org/downloads/cwshredder.zip

In addition, install Ad-Aware 6 free edition, start it, click its 'Check for Updates' link in the app to install updates, then use it to scan your system, and remove what it finds.
Ad-Aware:

Install, update and run SpyBot Search & Destroy, scan your system, and then remove the items in RED only.

It's generally present on Win98 and later but not Win95 unless
retro-fitted. As such, it's a common reason for apps that need it to
appear incompatible with Win95.

If using utilities against commercial malware, this is one of two
dependencies you will commonly see:

1) Needs Winsock 2

Affected: AdAware, Spybot 1.2 (haven't tested 1.3 without Winsock 2)

The nice thing is, these two apps don't really need Winsock 2
installed as such. All they need are the two relevant .DLL to be
sitting in thier own base directories, so if you are reluctant to
upgrade Winsock in the troubleshooting context, do that.

The files are WS2_32.DLL and WS2HELP.DLL - just make sure these really
are what the names suggest, however.

2) Needs Visual Basic 6 runtime library

Affected: Tools from "merijn", others

The merijn site is clear on this and states all utils from the site
require this. Having said that, the tool I use most often from there
(Cool Web Search Shredder) hasn't complained so far.

What version of Internet Explorer are you using?

Click Start>Settings> Control Panel> Internet Options> Advanced tab:
Check the box for "Disable script debugging"
AND
Un-check the box for "Display a notification about every script error"
Click OK.
