    No. Just restarting Netscape might be enough,
    but you may want to consider a newer browser.

    This can be a kind of bogus error message.
    Sometimes restarting Netscape helps.

    Do some sites come in fine?

    Back when I was using dial up, I could sometimes reduce the occurrence
    of this message by going into Preferences/Advanced and then unchecking
    "enable Java script." Nicely stops all popup ads as well, but you could
    lose other important content -- depends on the website.

    A lot of Netscape problems can be solved by trashing the entire cache
    folder and the history. Not sure if it will help here though.

    The warning pops up 2-3 times before I get it to come in......site looks
    OK...........I used Disk Warrior to optimize my disk (as the other poster
    said) but that was it.........no major improvement........

    I just got the error message to come up once on my computer (Netscape
    4.8) at the CNN site simply by turning Java script back "on." That's
    the culprit. (info. above on how to shut it off.)

    I usually keep it shut off and only turn it on when a web page is coming
    in y or seems to be missing something. (if you turn it back on,
    always hit "reload" for the page you're on).

    Try shutting that off and see if it fixes things.
