I have been trying for some time to access an interactive site but get a prompt saying that a Java Compatible Browser is required. I am running IE 7. I have uninstalled and re-installed java, and have run an update just now, but still the same message. This problem has only started recently as I was accessing the site successfully before. Can anyone help please?

I don't believe the W3C actually supports Java, but it can be used on browsers. I would try firefox or opera and see if you have the same problem. If you still can't access the java site then goto Sun Java homepage.

You should have no problem.
Have you tried using Firefox? I prefer it over IE.

Thanks both for the advice. I have installed Firefox which already seems far better and faster! The chat site works again, - Just goes to show that IE runs its own routine.

Intend to leave IE installed until I am fully conversant with Firefox. Will that affect Firefox at all, or should I uninstall it straight away?

Thanks again for advice

Leave IE installed for the security updates to Windows.

Also the fact that IE is incredibly difficult to uninstall :whistling:

And if you want to have fun with your shiny new Firefox, try some of the add-ons, my favourite right now are mouse gestures.
