Java Problems

  homer4god 20:30 20 Oct 2003

I have recentley upgraded to XP Home (Full version) one of the updates is a: set program access and defaults icon.
It is set on the custom setting.
Until this installed I didn't have any problem with java but after I can't get any pages with java.
I have tried clicking on the Microsoft Virtual Machine setting in the program access and default program but it always reverts back to the use current virtual machine for java setting (so no java)
I have tried just clicking the Microsoft Windows setting in the program access to enable the defaults but to no avale.
Can anyone help me out?

I would prefer to get rid of this bloody set program access and defaults program, any ideas?

click here for the java virtual manager which is no longer installed by default with windows XP (home and pro). that will solve your problem.

good luck

reset your internet options to default.

tools/internet options/advanced, then click restore defaults.

if that doesnt work then im lost.

good luck

Restored to the default settings and still no luck. Sometimes on the odd occation the java pages do load but most of the time nothing happens. If I try to open them in another window it never works.

Anybody got any more ideas?

Firewall settings wrong


if you use Zone Alarm, try reducing the setting to medium (just to try it out).

i found that after altering some settings on ZA, i couldnt even get on the net. had to uninstall/re-install zone alarm to get it to work.

set program access and defaults can be found by going to Start/ control panel/ add-remove programs, then its the bottom one on the left. sorry if you already know that.
