Hello:

Just after reloading Windows98 I have a new problem. Originally when I shut down Netscape 4.7 and looking at the programs still running (ctrl-alt-del) I saw Netscape still there. When I end task (and again end task in the box referring to the program not responding) I cannot bring up the program from the Microsoft Office Shortcut Bar nor the Taskbar. Both bars are frozen. Furthermore I can no longer see the programs running since ctrl-alt-del won't work. Sometimes just attempting to bring up Netscape the system crashes. After removing both Netscape and Microsoft Office and bring up IE it does the same with IE. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Does this happen every time, or just sometimes?

What else do you have in the Close Programs Window, besides Explorer, Systray and your browser?

Try this: from start, run msconfig

Click on the Startup tab and remove the checks for everything except scanregistry and systray. Click OK. Restart and see if you still have the same problem.

Hello:

Was away a few days; but, when I returned I did what you said. I think it may have solved the problem. There were a number of things running and after eliminating everything but the two you suggested I may be cured. I will test and let you know if I have problems. Thanks a million for your help.
