    I have XP Home. Just got the pc last month. When trying to use a chat function and streaming stock trading program(uses Java)(neither of these are on my pc; they're downloaded when I try to use them), a brief Java virtual machine downloads and then XP tells me I need an updated MS Virtual Machine. {Trying to use the streaming quotes causes the pc to lockup}. This takes me to an update scan which tells me I don't need any updates. Yet trying to use the items mentioned before, it still says I need the MS V M update. After much searching, I found a download link for the 1a service pack , but when I click it, it takes me back to the Update Scan which says I don't need the update. The chat function and streaming quotes still won't work. Merry-go-rounds are for the amusement parks, but this isn't very amusing. Is there a way I can get around the scan and run the service pack download or otherwise resolve this? Thank you for your help.
