Installing AVG 7.0 on Win 95 machine

I tried installing AVG 7.0, and it says I need DCOM95 for it to run. OK, so I go to Microsoft and download DCOM95INST.EXE. When I run it, it unzipps the files. When I execute the DCOM95.EXE file, it says I have an error registering OCX file, OLE32.DLL. So, I need DCOM95 to install AVG, but it won't install. I checked Microsoft's Knowledge Base, but it was of no help.
