    Okay.. 1st off. I have NEVER had a problem getting anything Java related.. ever...so I am lost.

    I recently did a boo boo I think.
    Here's my story.
    Could get in all java chat rooms. Decided to download the newest nvidia graphics drivers.
    Did that installed them... blah blah blah..

    Was not in a chat room at the time, nor did I attempt to with those drivers. They froze my computer up twice. Before the 3rd time, a program froze. I did an ctrl-alt-del and saw that it was a java something or other that was not responding.. so...in my great wisdom, without writing it down or anything, I did an "end task".
    I also decided it was time to remove the latest drivers as I was not gonna live with a locking up computer, so I reverted back to the previous drivers.

    Boot back up.. go to my message board. Go to chat, and the box comes up, but I can't log into it, and none of the applet starts just the window.

    So I am freaked.. I look at Internet options, to make sure my java was still enabled. It was..
    Decided, what the heck, I will download the latest java vm from Sun.. did that..
    Tested the vm at a site , and it tested just fine.

    Tried to get back in my chat..no luck.. went to 4 other sites, and tried their java chats.. nothing.. hit this sites chat.. it tells me I need an java enabled browser.. well .. DUH!

    What to check next? I reinstalled microsoft java vm... did all that I know of... and still no luck..

    I am using IE6 with all the goodies.. win98se..

    I have got to get this fixed as I am the admin for a message board and I can't get in our own chat! urgggh.

    I just did click on the browser "tools" internet options and clicked on the SUN java console, and nothing happened.. what next ??

    PROBLEM FIXED! Deleted all instances of java vm... downloaded microsoft java vm from an independant site..
    thanx.. j-bo

    I've seen this problem cleared up by emptying either (or both) the browser's cache and Temporary Internet Files. Try that...who knows, it might work for you, too. ;)

    Thanx.. tried that..

    Did a search and tried all that I have read to know avail.

    Here is what comes up on this sites "chat".

    Tech Support Guy Chat:
    Closing this window will end the chat. Please abide by the rules.
    You must have a Java-enabled browser to use the chat.

    Please wait a few seconds for applet to load.
    Having problems?

    Is it my last option to uninstall IE6 and reinstall? SHould I also uninstall all aspects of java vm? As in the SUN java also?

    Actually, I don't think that you should install Sun Java. If my history is up to scratch, Sun and Microsoft fell out with each other donkey's ago, so IE uses it's own version of Java. Try searching the knowledgebase at www.microsoft.com
