When I try to start up Netscape, I get the error "Netscape caused a General Protection fault in module COMPOBJ.DLL at 0003:3EED".  I tried re-installing Navigator, which didn't help.  I also tried installing Internet Explorer, which gave the same problem.

Did you try reinstalling the COMPOBJ.DLL file ?
I don't beleive it is part of Netscape, but of Windows.
First check where it is on your system, it should be in the \Windows or in the the \Windows\System directory.
Then boot your PC in DOS only, get your windows setup diskettes, and make a DIR COMPOBJ.* on them till you find the file COMPOBJ.DL_.

If you don't find it there, rate my answer "F" to avoid losing your points and get other answers from experts !

If you find it, use the following command to re-install it (you may have to delete the "bad" version first by using DEL \path\COMPOBJ.DLL though :
EXPAND  A:\COMPOBJ.DL_  C:\path\COMPOBJ.DLL

launch windows and see if it works ok now ...
