    I am starting a new thread because it has been several days since I started the netscape thread and the last message I put on was that I thought my problem might be solved and I didn't know if anyone would respond to that thread.
    After trying everything I still have the problem of slow page loading. I remember in trying to correct the problem that I booted to dos and tried to delete cache. I typed in deltree/y cache & deltree/y .cache and del cache. I don't know if that might have caused the problem. If so--is there a way to recreate cache.

    You need to type the exact name of the file or folder you want to delete, and you also have to be either in the folder the file is in, or type the complete path to the file, or nothing will happen.

    The commands you say you typed were probably not recognized, and therefore not executed.

    You need therefore not be afraid that you deleted something you shouldn't have.

    However it is a good thing to clear your cache every now and then.

    Here are the correct commands:

    cd windows (unless you're in C:\Windows already, obviously)
    smartdrv
    deltree history
    deltree tempor~1
    deltree cookies
    exit
    (to return to Windows)

    Good luck,
