    If you're still having problems let us know what happens when you try and load the page

    Have you just updated firefox?

    hi greg, iv read the forum via the link u gave me and iv uninstalled java and now trying to download it again, i click on 'begin download' and nothing happens.

    iv tried this already on several occasions but stil refuses to work

    On the Java.com page have you tried a manual download (just to the right of the download button)

    ffs!! stil doesnt work, might just give up!

    If you've got Windows XP you could roll your system back to a date you know it was working with a system restore.

    Also if you click on Tools... Internet Options... Advanced what does it say under Java(Sun)?

    What happens when you try and load the pages that require Java? Do you get the yellow warning triangle in the bottom left hand corner?

    it got the Java(Sun) box ticked and in brackets it says 'requires restart' so im guessing i gotta restart the pc. an no the 'done, with errors on page' triangle doesnt appear.

    back in a minute after restart..

    When you click on download on the Java page does the yellow information bar appear under the file menu and address bar?

    That could be the reason it appears not to be doing anything
