netscape and internet explorer problem

By mrfixit31 ·
I am having a problem figuring this one out. Netscape 4.76 keeps looking for adsubtract:4444... when going online. I have tried going to the homepage, tried going to different bookmarks tried changing the homepage and still the browser looks for the same thing. Internet explorer just tells me it cannot display this page. I have uninstalled the adsubtract program, uninstalled netscape and reinstalled it, I have used the find feature and removed any references to adsubtract, and I went into regedit and used the find feature there and removed all references to adsubtract. I am at a total loss because none of this worked. Please help.

netscape and internet explorer problem

I had a similar problem with a program I had installed. The only way that I could get it fixed was to uninstall both netscape and explorer, then go into regedit and remove all instances of netscape and explorer and the program that I had installed. After all of this(which was very time consuming) I re-booted the pc and re-installed netscape and explorer. Maybe this will work for you.

I uninstalled netscape again and was about to uninstall internet explorer when I could not find it in add/remove programs. So I installed McAfee uninstaller which also installs oil change. It tried to configure for my internet connection but failed because of a proxy server. I changed the proxy settings and viola it worked. Which is good because I was worried about uninstalling internet explorer because of the shared directory with windows.
