To bring your computer up to the high level security you need you’re going to have to download either Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Communicator. Just click on either one and we’ll take you there. Once you’re there follow the simple prompts provided. If you like, we’ve also created our own step by step guide for you to print off so you can have something on paper to consult as you upgrade.
Before starting to download any software it might be a good idea to print a copy of these instructions and follow along that way. Also, you’ll want to turn off your call waiting. This is very important to ensure an uninterrupted download.
Go to the Netscape 128bit download page
Choose the version of the browser you want to download. This depends on the operating system you’re running. (e.g. Windows, Mac or UNIX)
Next you’ll have to fill out a short form. It will ask you questions like your name, address and what country you’re in. Don’t worry, you’re just registering as a user with Netscape, you won’t be visited by any vacuum salesmen.
Now choose where to save your new browser. It’s probably a good idea to save it to your desktop. That way it will be easy to find after the download is complete. After it’s installed you can put your browser where ever you want. Note: Downloading this file will take some time. It might be a good idea to start it just before you go to bed, or in the morning before you go to work.
Once the download is complete, follow the installation instructions found in the downloaded folder.
Restart your computer.
