I have a pentium 150 and just had sympatico high speed edition installed 3 weeks ago.  About a week ago when I turned on my conputer,as it was loading it gave me this message "The Netware compatible shell is not available".  I have asked for technical help from sympatico and they say they can't help!  Thanks a million!

open windows explorer, in the root of the c drive right-click on the autoexec.bat file.  a menu will pop up, click edit.  now you can copy all the info from there and paste it here.

ok, that looks fine.  some more questions.  is your computer participating in a network?  if so, what type of network?

what components are installed in the network control panel.  right click on network neighborhood and click on properties.  a list of network components will come up, what's in the list?

This often happens if any Microsoft services for Netware are installed on a non-Netware network. If so you will need to right-click on network neighbourhood selcet properties then remove 'file and print services for Netware' or "services for Netware directory services".

Some service is looking for netware client services, add it through the control panel.  Did you ever have the machine connected to a Netware network?
