Hello everybody,

I'm on Windows 2000 SP4 with all the necessary pacthes and updates installed.

I have problems whenever anything in my system (browsers - both IE and Firefox -latest) invoke Java. I have Sun's JRE v5 update 7 installed. Java apps will run fine until I close the browser window. The whole computer except for the mouse pointer will freeze. Even the keyboard stops responding. Whenever I try to right click on the taskbar to invoke Task manager, it is the mouse pointer's turn to stop and hang - the system then halts with a single short beep coming from the system speaker - everything totally freezes. I then have to hit the reset button. This cycle of cause and events can be accurately reproduced each and every time, I have no doubt it's Java's fault.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. Can anybody offer any useful advice?

Please don't suggest that I don't run any Java applet - some sites simply invoke them without me knowing until it's too late.

If only MS continued with their JVM...

I wish we had a smiley that showed me scratching my head.
LOL, I was trying to say Sun's JAVA sucks. :) Not only does it load signifcantly slower than JVM, now it causes my system to hang! :D

Oh well...
