In another Netscape forum a guy said that this problem is caused by PSM (personal security manager). He said he doesn't know how to fix this though.
I don't know what PSM is. Is PSM part of Netscape 7.02 or part of Windows, or of something else?
The software I installed on Mon. 5 May (3 days before the NSS3.dll* crashes started) is as follows:
1) In order to upgrade to the latest freeware version of Sandra (from SiSoftware) I had to get and install at least version 2.5 of MDAC (Microsoft Data Access Components). [Sandra reveals all sorts of hidden info about your computer.] So I downloaded and ran the Microsoft upgrade installation file 'mdac_typ.exe'.
2) I installed the latest version of the freeware named WinPatrol (which looks for cookies and new programs on one's computer). [I now have version 5 of WinPatrol.]
3) I got the new version of TweakAll - ver. 3 - and installed it after removing my old version (1.2.3). [This freeware is found at www.codeforge.co.uk/mainframes.htm
4) After the NS crashes started yesterday (Wednesday), I downloaded and installed IE 6. This allowed me to install the latest Sandra. [In 1999, using 98Lite freeware, I stripped *all* of IE from my computer. I only relied on and favored Netscape.]
I did all of the above installations through freeware new to me, freeware I installed on Thurs. 1 May (which was days before the NS crashes started). This is 'Total Uninstall' found at http://www.geocities.com/ggmartau/do.../download.html
[Even though I installed this on 1 May it wasn't used for the first time 'til Mon. 5 May. I don't know if this has any bearing on the problem with NS 7.02, a problem starting 7 May.]
Would it be best to uninstall one of the above to see if NS 7.02 works again and if not to continue to uninstall another, etc. ?
Or should I uninstall NS 7.02, and then install it with a new profile? [If I should do this, what files can I save-- what preference and settings files should I save and then put into a new NS 7.02?]
[My OS is Windows 98 1st Edition. My CPU
: Pentium III, 450 mhz.]
Thanks for your attention to this message.
