My Auntie in Canada downloaded Netscape 7.1 and now she can't open .jpg attachments in her emails. She gets an error message "cannot find netscap6.exe". I know there's the save/open option...
Anybody know how to fix this?

Control Panel

Folder Options

Then click on the .jpg extension and point it to (using browse) whatever you (she) was using previously.

Go to My Computer select the C: drive then click on "View" and make sure that "Details" is selected so that files are seen with their extension.

Now find a directory that is known to have jpg files in it .
Then right click on the file and you will get the following screen on the left. You then click on "Change" next to "Opens With"and you get the screen on the right. You should then be able to change the Application you can open it with.

I always thought your were a pc expert ?

I'm a hardware type guy. Some software problems really do my head in. Bonsai, the assosiation is currently netscape 6, but it got overwritten with netscape 7. Clearly the net7 loader doesn't change the association to net7 !!!

on your tool bar, do you have an option for 'preferences' ?

there should then be an option to look at 'applications.'

you should be able to edit the netscape association.

I have recently updated my PC using BT Broadband and OS
is XP.

For some reason I cannot download Macromedia Flash [Free download].

I have even switched off my Zonealarm temporarily without getting the thing to download.

Any help / comments are appreciated.
