I downloaded the java and installed it before and it does not work.
Attached is picture of the area that is in java. There is suppose to be a list of folders set up as a tree. When I right click on it I get a window with 'about' or 'open java console'.
Any ideas what to do now?

installed the ActiveX Control


This was 4 the download?

Go to http://java.com/
click on the "free java download". This will walk you through the install. Just to the right of this button is one for "Do I have Java?". This will verify your java installation.

Updating Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 3.
  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.
