So, what is the reason that you failed to remove Netscape Browser? I can’t be sure without witnessing the whole process. Perhaps you didn’t shut down Netscape Browser before going through the removal, or the program itself went wrong. And most of the users forgot to delete the related registry keys after they’ve performed the previous steps.

You don’t want to give up so soon, so you are reading this. Uninstalling the programs you don’t need anymore and those you will never use is a good way to maintain the performance, keeping system crises at bay. If you are tired of being a whiner and want to make every second count, let’s now cut to the chase.

How to Manually Remove Netscape Browser on Your Own

1. First of all, log in your system with an account that has administrative rights, so that you will be able to go through all the steps, which are considered to be the actions of making changes in Windows. Otherwise you may need to provide the password when trying to remove Netscape Browser.

But if you are using the same account all the time, don’t bother to understand what I just said, and go to the next.

2. Shut down Netscape Browser, end all the related processes via Task Manager.

Press and hold Ctrl + Alt + Del on your keyboard to open Task Manager > Make sure the program isn’t running by checking the Applications tab, then go to the Processes tab, and end the related ones. They probably have similar names.

3. Remove Netscape Browser through Control Panel.

Windows 7: Click on Start button in the bottom left corner (or simply hit the Windows key on your keyboard), move your mouse pointer to the Control Panel and then click on it. > Select Uninstall a program under the Programs section. (If you’re a user of Windows XP, click on Add or Remove Programs.)

Windows 8: Right-click on Start button in the lower-left corner, and click on Control Panel > Select Uninstall a program under the Programs section.

Windows 10: Open the Start menu > Click Settings > Click System on the Settings menu > Select Apps & features from the left pane, then a list of all installed apps appears in the right pane.

Select Netscape Browser > Click the Uninstall button that appears (If it is grayed out, this is a system app you cannot remove) > Click the Uninstall pop-up button to confirm. Its default uninstaller will be activated with a pop-up window, on which please choose the last option Uninstall, and hit the Continue/Yes button when being told “You are about to remove Netscape Browser.” > Wait for the installation wizard to process your request and quietly perform the removing process.

At last it may tell you “The product was successfully uninstalled, blah blah blah…”. Just click on Restart computer (or Restart later) button if there is the button.

4. Delete the vestiges from Registry Editor to completely remove Netscape Browser.

If you’ve never done this before, not even for once, I suggest backing up your Registry before continuing. More troubles would be brought if anything is deleted by mistake. And it’s way too complicated to explain how to restore the data. So, just be careful. You can read How to Backup Windows Registry by scrolling down the page.

To open the Registry Editor:

Windows 7 Click on Start button (or simply hit the Windows key on your keyboard), type “regedit” in the box and press Enter key.

Windows 8 Just like how you opened Control Panel > Hover your mouse pointer to the bottom right corner until you see the charms bar pops up from the right side, type “regedit” in the search box, and hit the Enter key on your keyboard.

Windows 10 Executing “regedit” from any command-line area (just like how you do it on Windows 8).

Then the Registry Editor will be presented with a new window > From the left pane in Registry Editor, drill down until you locate the registry key named Netscape Browser > Once found, right-click or tab-and-hold it and select Delete > You’ll be asked to confirm the key or value deletion request, tap or click Yes to completely remove Netscape Browser.
