I answered a similar query about this earlier and i'm gonna paste my answer
to that below....
Search for a thread titled "netscape" with the first posting on the 28th of
May to read the whole thing...

My apologies for the delay in getting back to you but i've been trying to
re-create your fault...
I've got an older version of communicator and what i found with that is that
it gave an error writing to the default profile path because ordinary users
do not have access rights to where netscape wanted to put it. I solved this
by writing the profiles to "c:\documents and settings\<username>\netscape".
I also saw problems with netscape wanting to write changes to
"HKLM\software\netscape\netscape navigator\users" in the registry which i
solved by giving users full control of that key. Note that while I had
problems, I didn't actually get the crash that you are getting.
I'm thinking your problem has the same root causes, i.e. permission problems
like these, and for some reason 4.73 does not handle this gracefully, so you
might try checking NTFS permissions for ordinary users to the area where
profiles are being stored, and to the key i mention above in the registry
also (use regedt32 to view and alter access rights to the registry). If you
do this and things improve then not only have we nailed where the bug is at,
but we've probably got most of the way to a fix.
