I sat here for a little over 3 hours waiting on the thing to download, finally finish up and install it only to get no response when i click the icon. I have had Netscape on my comp before, prefer it in fact (my current IE is slow as molasses here lately)............any suggestions? This has happened before. Also, when i tried to put the newest version back on, in the download process, it always stops and gives me some crap about not being able to do it.

The new Netscape is more or less based on open source Mozilla, which has both a browser and an email client (together or separate), without the baggage that appears to come with the new Netscape.
Hint, hint, hint.

You shouldn't try to remove IE.
IE is so intertwined in the Windows OS that it could break Windows, if you try to remove it.
You also need IE for Windows updates.

You said IE was slow.
Have you ran any virus/spyware scans?
Are you using these basic security programs?
(They're all free.)

aČ free - a complementary product to antivirus software which is specialized in protection against harmful software. Antivirus software often features an inadequate protection against Trojans, Dialers and Spyware. aČ fills this gap.
Ad-Aware - A good program similar to SpyBot S & D.
Spybot S&D - Detects and removes spyware, of different types, from your computer.
SpywareBlaster - A good program that prevents spyware from being installed on your computer in the first place. This program is always running in the background, protecting your computer. It prevents the installation of bad active X controls found in web pages.
SpywareGuard - A nice compliment to SpywareBlaster. This allows you the option to prevent downloads that contain bad active X controls.

If not, you need to. These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

Download them, update them, and then run them.

Important:
Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do SERIOUS damage, if not used properly.

Have you cleaned out your temp internet files, and cookies, lately?

Actually, i did an entire recovery simply for the heck of it. I barely even use computer and it isnt for much other than some small chat and email biz and storing a few pix and songs. IE wasnt slow until after this recovery i did. Mozilla isnt terribly slow so why would it be bugs or full temp files and cookies? No worries and thanks for the help again.
