Wow, I'm feeling really guilty, as I pretty much talked you into Netscape 7.0.
Still ticked that AOL and Real Player decided to place their bloody icons in every possible place.
Right click the icons and select "Delete".
This will remove the RP icon from you System Tray:
Click on the "General" Tab
Scroll to the last entry: "StartCenter"
Click on "Settings" Tab
Disable (Remove Tick): "Enable StartCenter"
Pissed that my mail continues to open with news that I don't want, instead of a blank as it should be. Why I should be forced to go into some file to fix this is beyond me.
Mr. Tinkles has answered this issue, but I would like to add just a small tidbit. Use a blank page to open with, and it really cuts down on Netscape load time. It's pretty fast, but this is even better. (I don't like QuickLaunch)
This setting is found in Edit|Preferences|Navigator
Select: "Blank Page"
In the "Location" field, delete anything that is there, and leave it blank.
Frustrated that after having deleted Mozilla and installing Netscape I discover all my settings (obviously deleting Mozilla did not delete my user profile as I thought it would) are still intact but are NOW part of Netscape's profile.
Deleting the old Profile needs to be done manually, after you have uninstalled the program in Add/Remove. You can create a new profile for Netscape 7.0 and when it meets your needs, delete the one that was converted from Mozilla.
In addition, these two files can be deleted ONLY if you have no other Mozilla or Netscape 6/7 applications installed. Those files are:
mozver.dat and registry.dat.
You should delete these files before you reboot, after the uninstall of the application (NS or Moz).
If there's anything I can do to make this transition easier for you, I'm at your service.
