Hello all. My two browsers -- IE and Netscape -- won't start up because wast2 is "not responding." The Dell technicians were of no help and think the last recourse is reinstalling Windows Me. Can I try uninstalling both browsers? how can wast2 be repaired? Thank you....

As memory serves me, Wasp2 is associated with a trojan or virus. I would suggest you update your AV defintions and do a complete scan of your HD. If you have Ad-Aware installed, or Spybot Search and Destroy, run both as well.
Once this has been done,and if the problem persists, you should download and run Hijack This, and post the results on the Hijackthis Analysis Board at BP. There is a sticky there to tell you how to download, install, run and post it's report on that board.
Cheers,
John

There is an overlay called Avant that might function as an alternate.


Also there is a stand alone ( i think ). It is called Fire Fox , as an alternate browser.

Thanks for replying. All I needed to do actually was run Spy Sweeper and now everything's fine. But now I'm curious about something else. What's 180ax? It seemed to get in the way of going online so I deleted it but it keeps coming back (in the Windows folder).
