Try installing Java click here

Can't help with Kazaa - my advice is don't unless you plan on coming here for help with scumware on a regular basis.

Movies - have you tried the free version of Realplayer? Which internet browser are you using? If it is Internet Explorer, look on the Tools menu for Internet options. On the advanced tab, look to see if there is a tick next to disable script debugging? That should get rid of the error on page message, I think.

When I first started writing Javascript myself some years ago, there used to be a setting for turning on/off the ability to handle javascript in the browser. I'm wondering if this still applies and whether your browser has it switched off. I will look at the other settings later and see if I can remember which one it was?

Just wondering about the advanced settings again. Can you look further down the Advanced setting tab as described earlier and tell me whether there are ticks against any of these boxes.

Java console enabled.
Java logging enabled.
JIT compiler for virtual machines enabled.

Let me know what your settings are and I'll compare them with mine which work.

All 3 are ticked but the script debugging is not and it seems to be working better thanks bud!!
