Netscape 7.1 not loading properly

  Magic VI 10:23 03 May 2004

Sometimes; when I click on the N icon it bypasses the normal netscape logo and jumps straight to the netscape window which is empty(just the outline and a white inner). This Netscape window freezes and the only way I can exit is to go to Task Manager. This happens if I use just the Browser or just the Mail/newsgroups.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled without effect.

N 7.1 loads perfectly the first time. When I close the window it is still running in the background and the only way to close it down fully is to go to task manager.
Help anybody?

hello m8,

why not try mozilla

pics up your pop mail

or you can down load thunderbird for a stand alone pop3 sever,

some say mozilla can't cope with all pages but when i tried it out worked fine,

my son uses it all the time and given up on ie for good,

There shouls not be a problem because I have exactly the same set up on my desk topo without this problem. I only have this failure to shut down on my Laptop

Have you tried running Netscape over its self an choose a custom install, Remove all the ticks from boxes and press enter and it should reinstall the browser

Solved the problem by drastic measures- namely reformatting all my drives and reinstalling W XP pro.
Surprisingly I had no poroblems with registering the software.
