I am having a problem opening up my browser. I still use Netscape Navigator as my main browser. Yes, I know it's old, but it has worked fine for my limited computer use. I do use Internet Explorer now and then, including now to log in here, but I will admit for many reasons I hate it. I simply can't figure out, Netscape to a computer dummie like me, that does limited stuff online works just fine thank you, and I know how to use it.
I posted a few weeks ago about slow computer problems and freezing up. I was told to go through all the steps in the slow computer info here. I have spent the last few weeks slowly making my way through the list. The only thing that really helped a little, was not on the list - it involved opening up my computer to clean out some of the pet hair inside.
So my computer still is barely running, still runs painfully slow, still freezes up all the time. I give up, I'm going to eventually within the next month try to afford a new computer. But I really need to get into my Netscape to access my bookmarks and stuff and to hopefully get it limping and usable for another month or so.
Anyway this all started this morning, when my computer was freezing up as it usually does after being online a while, and I did the only thing that has worked - unplugging it.
Something in this drastic measure messed up Netscape today. It will start to open, the Netscape window opens, then freezes, with a blank white screen - and the only way to get out of it is to use alt/cntl/delete. I have tried again and again and again.....
I spent all day googling fixes. And trying them all to no avail. I have run scandisk. I ran malwerebytes (nothing found) I did disk refragmenting. I did a windows system restore. I have updated my avast virus protection. I have rebooted a dozen times today.
Nothing works. My Netscape browser will not run. I'm so frustrated, and would so appreciate any and all advice, which I will do exactly what you experts tell me to do. If I can just get my good ole Netscape to run for a short while longer.....
I will be more than happy to provide any information and/or answer any questions.
Thank you in advance for anyone that can take the time to help me.
