I was recently downloading the new Java version for my computer and I did what it said for installation. I have it downloaded but it just won't seem to work. I checked it through the control panel and the browser and everthing seems fine until I see a big X where the Java applet is suppose to load. I've tried following all the instructions Java has provided for Internet Explorer 5.5+ (I have 6.0).

Help when ever you can, thanks.

I do have Norton but I made sure that Java (sun) was allowed to access the internet and update/be used. And under multi-media I didnt see anything that would be blocking Java from being used.

Sorry for the double post, but when I was just trying to figure it out and went on the Java site again, I went to the older version verify check something came up. It was talking about stmain.dll and I looked into that, it looked pretty harmless but that does explain why my window closes when something Java-related comes on the screen. (Ex. Yahoo games)

Is this causing a problem and if so, how do I change or get rid of it?

Thanks.
