I've been using Netscape V7.1 since the Disk was first distributed and
have had nothing but outstanding results with it. I find it far faster in almost every respect that Internet Explorer. The only time I use IE is
to download and install patches. I'm using the Me Operating System,
keep it up to date change wise, and at the end of the day I run all the diagnostics including the Norton Register checker to fix Registry
errors, if any. After this is done I clean up the caches, dump the garbage and get rid of the Windows/TEMP files.
At the Club I attend, I've heard the same problems stories about W95, Wp98 and XP. Most of the problems, I believe. can be attributed
improper installation, poor housekeeping and overload. One fellow at the Club has about 60G of Programs on his hard drive with icons all over the place and so many shortcuts on the desktop, it was like running a maize to find the shortcut you were looking for. On top of that he had all the Norton Programs start and run at boot. In all about 40 programs starting at startup. At the end of the Boot cycle
practically all his resourses were used up. Someone cheched his hard disk using Speed Disk and found that it was only 30% unfragnented.
I'm not implying that people do not keep their system cleaned up. I'm offering a few suggestions which may make you syatem operate better by giving it a chance to perform.
