How to remove Novell

I have a hobby of redoing older computers for other elderly folks to get them interested in computers. I have one now that was given me by one of our local banks, it is a pretty good computerbut but did not have a CD, sound card, or modem in it. I have installed a CDR and sound card & modem, then when I tried to set it up for the internet I found that it had Novell installed and was set up for network. Every time I try to connect to the internet the password that was in it pops up and it goes to the bank web site. Can somebody tell me how to remove the Novell network set up and get rid of that password? I have tried everything I can think of short of formatting the hard drive and reinstalling Windows.

Maybe best to reformat...

In reply to: How to remove Novell

Goto and review the tools or pgms. they have to help. While Novell is an OS itself, I suspect more than likely you need to reformat rather than fiddling around just to keep things simple. I hadn't worked on Novell in quite awhile and forgot too much, after v3.5 or was it 4.0.

Billjean, Can You Simply Change The Homepage??

In reply to: How to remove Novell

It sounds like the homepage was set to the banking site. Open the Control Panel, double click on the "Internet Options" icon. On the "General" tab, in the "Homepage" section, type in an appropriate homepage...such as "" or anything else you like.

If you'd like to uninstall the Novell client, follow the instructions in the link below:

And if you're using Windows 98 on that machine, it may need the instructions below:

Hope this helps.
