Hi there,
I keep getting asked to install java virtual machine but after the 1minute installation/download or whatever, I get relocated to the microsoft web site where I am given no download option.
Can somone help me?
Why is this occuring? I have jdk 1.3 installed on my computer from some school work last trimester, maybe that has something to do with it?

uninstall the old java, make sure the java activeX componants are removed, install new java and java should now work.

While on the subject of Java. Win XP (my copy anyway), does not seem to have Java. In explorer I have a Java folder but no files in it. In my last comp I downloaded Java from the Sun site and it worked well. On my new comp I have not done so yet and am wondering why MS is not supplying it.
