Re: OpenNT


I had the same problems with MSIE4 myself.  If one is going to install 
it, I recommend going *without* shell integration.  If you have any 
intentions of removing it in the future, I recommend you don't install it 
at all cause it's hell on earth to remove.

It seems both MS and Netscape threw good practices out the window to rush 
their latest browsers to the market.  You would be better off sticking 
with version 3, till MS gets it's act togethor.
