    I'm using Win98 on an IBM Thinkpad i series 1400 laptop, and downloaded Netscape 7.0 yesterday in an effort to be compatible with a PDA device I have. (I currently use AOL as my mail client, which is not compatible with the device). Anyway, after downloading Netscape 7.0, I discovered that the PDA only supports versions of Netscape 4.x, and nothing above that.
    I tried to uninstall 7.0 so I could try to install version 4.78 instead, and used the Control Panel add/remove programs utility. The utility did not remove the program. The icons are still on my desktop and in my taskbar, but when I call up add/remove programs, Netscape has disappeared from the list. What could have caused this?

    By the way, the icons are still active...the program runs just like it did before I "removed" it.
