    Somehow Babylon Search got on my computer and took over. It made itself default search engine. i had a devil of a time getting it off my computer but finally succeeded. Now when I click on a hyperlink a blank window comes up but never opens. I have to cut and paste it to get it to open. I am on Windows XP and IE8 browser. I would appreciate any help but remember I can't click on any hyperlinks.

    I did the check on my "dlls". All were found but the Msjava.dll and Mshtml.dll were not found. So now how do I install these.

    I downloaded google chrome and now the hyperlinks will open but still no Msjava.dll. Is there a site where I can download these dlls?

    Msjava.dll - relates to Java.
    Download Java.
    http://www.java.com/en/

    It is best not to download any dll file from the net - they may be older versions or the wrong ones.

    The MSJava.dll was used for Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine which has been discontinued. Use Oracle Java and don't worry about MSJava. Your problem started when the other browser was installed, it made changes to your registry. If you want to use IE, uninstall Chrome and everything should work fine.
