    Installing Java isn't a bad idea. Many site require it.

    Also you may want to look at any security software that may be installed on the system. Norton Internet Security will, by default, prevent some sites from working properly.

    You can have some issues with some sites using Java on systems that use Microsoft VM (Virtual Machine)

    Even though Microsoft stopped releasing new versions of this I haven't seen a fix offered up on windows update to make Java the default app to handle the code.

    That being said if you want to install java it might be a good idea to get rid of VM.

    http://minimalist.com/Articles/VMRemove.aspx

    Has good instructions on this to make Java the default App for handling the code in these web pages.

    As far as getting java installed goes just go to

    http://java.com/en/index.jsp

    Then click get it now under free download it will handle it, You might have to click yes to agree or something minor like that.

    Hope this helps you out

    i still dont know why windows doesnt come with java already.

    i found it by searching for MSJVM - it seems pretty illusive. microsoft dont have a obvious download location on their site.
