Here at Jersey Shore Medical Center in New Jersey we had a similar problem.
To run the new MKSAP11 we had to install Internet Explorer on our Windows NT
system.  We had so many problems with both Netscape and IE being available
on the same system  that we de-installed Netscape. I definately think a call
to the Justice Department is in order!
