After my 2 crashes/hour record with netscape, I switched to IE 5 which was in my computer the whole time but never used it. Once in a while, whenever i want to go to a new page, a message saying "detecting proxy setting" shows up and stayed that way until couple second and then the page started to load. Oh yeah, the first thing i have to do is confirming that i am online everytime i open IE apparently it doesn't think i am connected. The situation gets worse after I installed DSL last week, the detecting proxy thingy stayed for at least 5 min before loading at below 1kbps (slower than my modem...)at EVERY site, including the awesome gotapex site. Then i changed to netscape 6 with good and bad results.. the speed is still 3k/s (actual) from a single source. Apparently a bad choice of switching to a BETA browser, I tried to uninstall it, and guess what, no uninstall program.. argh. Now i am stuck with a slower-than dial-up DSL and two non-functioning browsers. Oh yeah, trying to reinstall IE, the stupid windows update kept on doing this "resuming" downloading components loops that never finished the update. After 4 tries, I gave up and stayed with the buggy un-uninstallable netscape. Any takes from the experts, everyone?
