I enjoy going to pogo.com and playing bingo but this computer won't let me,
it keeps coming up with java missing. I am pretty new to computers so I am
not sure as to what it even means.( I am pretty sure it isn't telling me I
haven't had enough coffee)
I tried looking for java files to download but there seems ot be a ton of
them and i don't have a clue as to which one.
I mainly use my computer for games, banking chatting all that stuff.
If someone could let me know what to download and where to find it I would
really appreciate it.
Thanks
Jak

As the result of a lawsuit by Sun Microsystems, and the ensuing
settlement, Microsoft was not allowed to provide its own Java Virtual
Machine to Windows XP users. You can get almost the same
functionality by downloading Sun's version of Java from
http://java.sun.com/getjava/index.html. If you want the wider website
compatibility of Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine, it is still
available from a lot of 3rd-party web sites, one of which is here:
http://www.virtualmachine.tk/.

If you do choose the Microsoft JVM, be sure to apply a needed
security patch.

"You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having
both at once. Yeah baby! Look at America! Freedom does not come without
much sacrafice.
