Delete Explorer and reinstall Win 98 and it should clear this up.

could you be a bit more descriptive?

wot file is if you are trying to download. rightclick, then save as or a straight left click?

and what is the library file that is missing?

the error message is the same for both internet explorer and netscape?

i haven't heard of an error message regarding "netzip'. did you install the old winzip internet attachment thingy where it would automatically open up a zip file on download or something?

i suggest that you uninstall netscape and install it again. also, try right-clicking on the link and then save to..

hope this works
