    My computer is advising me that "netscape.exe" cannot be found (when I am attempting to upload jpg. pictures using a cd.rom. I see the folder on my computer, but no program is within the folder.

    Am just recently updating ie5 to ie6 and still having problems with that upgrade as well. In wanting to use a website that allows the use of smileys (like those to the right), I am being advised that the website 'does not currently support my browser." I have attempted to re-install the ie6 to no avail.


    PS - also had error message wcs2000 and was advised to re-install my cs program. that was done again today. What is the problem with my computer all of a sudden? :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Standard troubleshooting forays, Please see the link below in my signature to the Panda on-line virus scan.


    Make sure you have all the Critical Updates and Service Packs from http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com


    Get, install, update and run free Ad-aware (and its HexDump plug-in) from http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

    First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest reference files.

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------ON=GREEN

    From main window :Click Start then Activate in-depth scan (recommended)

    Click Use Custom Scanning Options' then click Customize' and have these options selected: Under Drives and Folders put a check by Scan Within Archives and below that under Memory and Registry put a check by all the options there.

    Now click on the Tweak button in that same window. Under Scanning engine select: Unload recognized processes during scanning and under Cleaning Engine select: Let windows remove files in use at next reboot

    Click proceed to save your settings.

    Now to scan just click the Next button.

    When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and click Next)

    Restart your computer.


    Then go here and download Spybot Search & Destroy. http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?lang=en&page=download

    Install the program and launch it.

    Before scanning press Online and Search for Updates .

    Put a check mark at and install all updates.

    Click Check for Problems and when the scan is finished let Spybot fix/remove all it finds marked in RED.

    Restart your computer.


    What CD are you referring to when you're try to use jpg's from? Try downloading the newest Netscape 7.1 from http://channels.netscape.com/ns/browsers/default.jsp

    You may simply need to change file associations. Is Netscape or IE set as you default browser. You may need to remove the file asociations for images and music files from Netscape.


    What do you mean, give specifics, when you say 'still having problems with that upgrade as well', when referring to a IE 6 upgrade?
