(!) - Yellow Exclamation Point (Netscape)
This wordless message can appear when you click the icon for Navigator or Communicator and the program won’t start. This is a sign a file in the Windows Registry is corrupt. The Registry is an area where information related to your preferences and system configuration is located. In short, the Registry is the central core of your system. It holds data about devices, drivers, programs, and files, and when data contained in it is damaged, errors galore can appear.

If the Registry is damaged, try using the Last Known Good Configuration option. But before doing this, it’s a good idea to back up important files by clicking the Start button and then Shut Down. Click Restart and then click OK. While the system is rebooting, watch for a message that reads: Please Select The Operating System To Start, Press F8. When you see it, Press F8. From the menu that appears, use the arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration and press ENTER. Use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you use and press ENTER. Windows will load an undamaged version. However, everything that was saved after this date will be lost, so you may have to reload programs or restore files.
