Here's how you can check. You can't check by Window Class because Netscape starts up with a different window class each time. Because of this, you have to check by title.

Usage:

If NetscapeIsRunning Then
    'something
Else
    'close internet connection
End If

Make sure none of your apps have the phrase "Netscape" in the title bar.



Private Declare Function GetWindowText Lib "user32" Alias "GetWindowTextA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpString As String, ByVal aint As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function GetWindow Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wCmd As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function GetDesktopWindow Lib "user32" () As Long

Const GW_HWNDNEXT = 2
Const GW_CHILD = 5


Public Function NetscapeIsRunning() As Boolean

    Dim hWndTmp As Long
   
    'get the first child window
    hWndTmp = GetWindow(GetDesktopWindow, GW_CHILD)
   
    'look for netscape in the children
    Do While hWndTmp <> 0
   
        If InStr(WindowTitle(hWndTmp), "Netscape") <> 0 Then
            NetscapeIsRunning = True
            Exit Function
        End If
        'look for a sibling
        hWndTmp = GetWindow(hWndTmp, GW_HWNDNEXT)
               
    Loop
   
End Function

Private Function WindowTitle(hwnd As Long) As String

    Dim lResult As Long
    Dim sTemp As String * 256
   
    lResult = GetWindowText(hwnd, sTemp, 256)
    WindowTitle = Left(sTemp, lResult)
   
End Function
