    When i get on websites i get a pop up that i have to get the latest

    version of Java Virtual Machine. I tried to download it once but it didn't

    work for some reason. When i download a program from PCWorld.com it

    doesn't work because it says i'm missing a file. It doesn't say which file

    most of the time. I didn't find Java Virtual Machine on 'Windows Update'

    website.

    Thank you for your replys.

    any of the programs from PCWorld. it says i'm missing a file. each time it's a different file. sometimes it doesn't tell me which file, but says that it did.

    do you have to register with PCWorld 1st to D/L programs?

    Thanks

    I went ot pc world to see if I get a latest java pop up too...don't get it

    I never get the pop up with ms machine...interesting

    anyway, toggle between the java sun and the ms, and see if don't get it with one or the other

    right click the start menue, explore all users, set program defaults

    try one then the other, and see which is best for you

    so far, even though the ms machine hasn't been updated, I haven't had any issue at all with it, annd it's a much better program then the java

    ah

    maybe this will help

    try a download manager like star

    the download link should use the download manager.

    if it doesn't right click the link that says to click if the download was unsuccessful

    go to properties, pull the url, and past that into your down;oad manager

    come to think of it, try pasting that into your address bar first
