I have no idea about your problem

Which download is it, and where can I find it on the Sun website?
I need it, I can't view Java applets in IE at all. Thanks.

JAVA VM and RUNTIME FIX!

Ok,I have found the 'cure' for those that need JVM and have downloaded the SUN(crap) version.
Seems that this version is junk for most users with 'jumpy' applets and sometimes even freezing applets.
You may also have noticed that applets have a few loading phases.First a class file,then a jar file,then the image file,either gif or jpg.

If you have installed the version given out by SUN,un-install it.
I found the last build by M$ and was going to install it.I un-installed the version by sun by going into add/remove programs.I removed the stupid game they add when you install and the java program itself.
I rebooted just as self assurance.
I went to a site that contains java just to make sure that it was gone(would have got the po-pup wanting me to install JVM)
To my surprise I did not.Applets loaded and were as they should be.I did not have to install the M$ one to regain view of JAVA.

Just for kicks,try this.
Before doing the un-installing process,go here and let the applet load.LINK
If you had the problems I did,you will notice a phase of loading,then the applet acting 'jerky' then maybe freeze.
After doing this,do the un-install(may want to reboot for self assurance)
Go back to that link above and you should notice no loading and a nice smooth applet.

I know computers a little bit,but I'm not quite sure why getting rid of the java program and still being able to see it and run better is all about.
All that really matters is that it works!

If the above did not help and you have no more source to view java,you can download the Microsoft VM build 3802 for Windows 95/98, Windows Me, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows XP build of Java,the latest one, before they pulled the plug on it HERE

Again,some people do not have an issue with the SUN version.
But if you goto their mesageboard,most posts are those complaining of all the errors and also how crappy is works.
