O/S - 98SE, RAM 256, using Netscape7.2 - which in the last few days has been "playing up", like, from a new Windows startup opens fairly quick and is fine but progressive openings are slower to the point where it won't open at all; result - restart and the cycle resumes - any logical reason for this? - no virus,spyware or the like - i see a new version out v.8.0 (8.1?) - maybe i should upgrade to that? but don't really want to rush in too early - have always used Netscape and don't really want to change but? - would appreciate your views

Defragging might help.

v8 of netscape has flaws so dont use it yet, until 8.01 / 8.1 gets released.

Try cleaning / deleting temp files / cache

done all that "speedy" - was initially thinking there's maybe a known flaw - hence the post - as "sambaird" wrote, v8.1 is out so maybe i'll use it - thought about "firefox" - any comments re? - 'spose i'd have to make all sorts of adjustments
