NETSCAPE changing a "hidden" setting
Posted on 2000-03-02
I currently use NETSCAPE 4.6. Some weeks ago I , foolishly, downloaded "FREENSAFE" as a free ISP. It completely blocked my browser from going anywhere except through the EVESTA proxy server (even though I opted to avoid this choice). I needed to call FREENSAFE and get a special code in order to uninstall the ISP from the browser and now I'm back to status quo. Well almost!
I still find that adding a search address into the browser Location bar, without the associated www or dot com always defaults me through the EVESTA proxy server which never knows the site I am looking for and gives me a promotion of the Freensafe site [##**!!!!***]
I need to retrieve or reset the setting which I used to have which (I suppose) always went back to the Netscape server for this information. I have looked through all the settings I can find, as well as the Registry and I can't find anything which gives me a hint how to do this. Can someone please help. I'm at my wits end with this.
Thanks very much.
