You minimalists considering an alternative to Internet Explorer might have noticed Netscape Navigator 4.08, rather than the more ponderous Communicator (who needs yet another e-mail client/newsreader and HTML editor).
The problem is, if you use Microsoft RegClean 4.1a, your Preferences feature (as in Edit/Preferences... ) in Navigator will most likely cease to function.
RegClean is a wonderful little tool for safely pruning your Windows Registry, so it would be nice to be able to use it along with Navigator.
Well, you can. The real trick is to run RegClean at least twice consecutively just before you install Navigator 4.08 (Communicator is unaffected by RegClean on all installations I've worked with). Then run RegClean immediately after completing your installation.
The Undo*.REG file created by RegClean after you've installed Navigator will be your template for "fixing" Netscape each time you run RegClean 4.1-a in the future.
Save it with an easy to remember name (say NetscapeFix.REG) and Merge it immediately after you run RegClean 4.1-a from then on. Netscape will get fixed each time and your Registry stays nice and trim.
