Must be Nescape 4.x is running files shared with NT which were uninstalled.

Need to run NT install again - chose Repair and select to install all the options.

After rebooting run the NT service pack again and re-install Netscape.

This should work. If not re-install the application she uninstalled and see if it runs. If it does she can uninstall the application but this time keep shared files.

Good luck.

It's a possibility that in all the activity on the drive some file damage may have occured . I agree that a reload of NT may be necessary but prior to that I would run a full (thorough) scandisk in the Win enviorment . Afterwards , try going online with Netscape and see if it doesn't maintain its integrity .
(Oh thhe woes in deleted files)

It has been my experience in un-install, that occassionally a shared file will be deleted that is still being used by another program, it would be wise to check if any such file was removed that both Netscape and the program that was un-installed were both interdependant on. In this way you would be able to import just the file rather than have to go through a long process of installing a new client or version of software and doing the Mexican hat dance aroung your hard drive.

Check out your home page URL, Edit | Preferences and see how many Forward slashes follow the http:// if there is only (1)/, insert another, then try to connect again. Good luck.
