    Okay, so I was directed here by another person from another forum. I'm not sure if this is the right place of the forum to post this (seems to be the best). Anyways, the problem:

    Today I was loading my CBS Fantasy Football scoreboard and it had java on it so it activated the Java 2 Runtime Environment. When the page was finished loading, my PC restarted. I thought that perhaps I did something wrong, so I tried loading the page again and a 2nd time my PC restarted. I am running Windows XP. When I first got XP (around it's release) and tried running java, it seemed I needed to download this Java 2 Runtime Environment program for java to work. Sites with java work the majority of the time, but there are sometimes a select few that cause this problem and make my PC restart.

    I really want to resolve this issue ASAP. I don't know what other information to include that might help. Please help me!

    Just to keep this updated..

    I just updated my Java 2 Runtime program whatever thing... (it was on java.com). I now have the latest version and my PC still reboots. I'm wondering if it has something to do with my IE settings. Perhaps in the security or advanced tab. I'm not really sure... :confused:
