    Several times a day I get the following message:
    Unknown Status Reply From Server: 1!
    With an OK box below it. I can't do anything until I click the OK box and then I can continue working. I am using Netscape 4.7 and win 98se. I called my DSL provider and the suggested I try using IE and if there is no problem it is a Netscape problem. I have tried the IE for a limited amount of time and the problem did not appear. I posted the problem on the Netscape Communicator Newsgroup and did not get a reply. Any thoughts?

    Hi Dick Jones

    If there was an obvious answer I think you would have got one from the Netscape newsgroup.

    As this appears to be a Netscape specific problem I would uninstall and reinstall Netscape

    Hi Dick

    For no other reason than spyware\malware\foistware\adware causes some weird faults on computers

    Please Download and install SpyBot,

    http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/spybot14.exe

    click the online tab to search for and download the updates, then shut down and relaunch SpyBot.

    Go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
    These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

    Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, click 'Check for problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds 'Fix selected problems'

    you may have to run spybot more than once to clear everything

    Remove everything pre-ticked in Red

    It can't do any harm and it may help

    steam

    I have Ad-Aware installed on my machine, which I ran with no success. Do you think Spy-Bot will do a better job? I don't want to install redundant programs unless it is necessary.

    Thanks,
    Dick

    Hi Dick

    spybot will do a much better job - try it you'll be surprised - adaware has not been updated for 5 months and wont be untill the new version comes out next month

    Also check out this netscape forum :-

    http://www.windowsbbs.com/forumdisplay.php?forumid=5

    If you don't find an answer - ask your question there

    Did this always happen?
    Did you try going into Start > Control Panel > Internet Options
    Click the Connections Tab, then Lan Settings and make sure you don't have a proxy checked there.
    Then open Netscape and go to Edit > Preferences > click Advanced and proxies. What do you have there?
