Operating System Version: Windows XP serpack 1
Problem Application Name & Version: Netscape
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Dell 4550
Error Messages:

I had a weird thing happen. My Netscape 7 suddenly had NO preferences, NO mail settings, and none of my Saved mail associated with it.

Even after I re-set the Prefs, it kept crashing every few minutes, and finally I uninstalled and re-installed it, and now it seems to be working.

No one uses my computer but me and I don't see how it could have happened unless it was a virus or someone hacked in and did it.

Any theories?

Could your hard drive have developped bad sectors and cause corruption in some of the Netscape files?

Run 'CHKDSK /r'
