I'm not sure what exactly is causing it, but there seems to be a problem with java. I cant play any java games, nor see anything in the java windows. I also cant goto some sites. My problem is a lot like JJJ's on his thread "IE and Firefox Problems ", and ive done most of the stuff he tried, but nothings really worked. I think this has been a problem since the computer was reformatted several months ago, but im just now gettin around to it. Ive tried to go to java's site and DL the software, but i cant. I can get all the way to the button to download it, but when i click that button, a window pops up in Firefox that says "this document contains no data." Ive noticed that that same window comes up when i try to go to a lot of random sites too, like when i'm searching for something. After finding a thread on MS's support forums, i thought maybe the Microsoft java virtual machine was installed on here along with the normal java machine, which would create a conflict between the two when i tried to run java and possibly stop both from running. However, when i attempted to follow the instructions to remove the MSJVM, i found that i was missing all the files except the java folder in c:/windows, and that was empty. I also looked in add/remove programs for anything java related for me to uninstall, but there was nothing. Well, not sure where else to go from here. Please help.
