As shown in the picture, level 96 has two tricky areas, one to the left and one to the right. They are both an infected bubble with crystal bubbles underneath them. Everything is just fine, because the crystal is shielding the normal bubbles from the infection. But be aware! As soon as you burst bubbles nearby the crystal bubbles below an infected bubble, the infection starts to spread down. We would like to have this in control. The best way to control an infection at level 96 is to try to burst as many other bubbles as possible before letting the crystal shield go. Happy bubbling, everybody!

I actually managed to get 3 Stars in level 96 without using any Magic Potions, but I was extremely lucky there.
