    I am running XP home, I have always had problems with Java. a lot of the stuff I received or look at does not come up because of some problem in Java. Many times I will get a box with a red X in the corner. I have uninstalled Java and reinstalled and get the same results. Any Answers as to how to fix. Gary

    Open Internet Explorer, click Tools - Internet Options - Advanced(tab), place a checkmark in all entries in the "Multimedia" menu, click Apply - OK.

    Without Adobe Flash Player and Sun Java Runtime Environment installed in your computer, you'll come across some websites that can't be viewed properly or completely.

    Flash and Java are used for viewing multimedia in websites that require them.

    Installing them will have no affect on why some of your programs won't load. What programs won't load?

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Go into Add/Remove Programs and make sure that all older versions of Java are uninstalled and that only version 6 Update 7(1.6.0.07) is present.

    After you do that, go into C:\Program Files\Java and delete any leftover folders from older versions.

    Just for your information, when you update Adobe Flash Player and Sun Java Runtime Environment in the future, download and save the new versions, uninstall the old versions, then install the new versions. (y)
