  • Description
    In Netscape 6 (I know for sure with 6.2.1, maybe with 6.0) Netscape.exe is the main executable file for Netscape Navigator, Netscape Mail and News, and Netscape Messenger (the new name for the embedded AIM, no doubt to make it sound like Windows Messenger, the XP version of MSN Messenger). Basically, netscape.exe can be more than just Netscape Messenger, and Messenger can be more then just AIM in disguise, depending on the version of Netscape installed

It is assumed that users are familiar with the operating system they are using and comfortable with making the suggested changes. BleepingComputer.com will not be held responsible if changes you make cause a system failure.

This is NOT a list of tasks/processes taken from Task Manager or the Close Program window (CTRL+ALT+DEL) but a list of startup applications, although you will find some of them listed via this method. Pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL identifies programs that are currently running - not necessarily at startup. Therefore, before ending a task/process via CTRL+ALT+DEL just because it has an "X" recommendation, please check whether it's in MSCONFIG or the registry first. An example would be "svchost.exe" - which doesn't appear in either under normal conditions but does via CTRL+ALT+DEL. If in doubt, don't do anything.
