I just downloaded AOL's computer checkup since I have been having alot of disconnects and shut downs that restart.



In the computer check up I am instructed to D/L Java Sun, when I click on this in the AOL Computer check up my Foxfire opens and is directed to the Java D/L page,

My system information reveals the following browser information;

browser 5.1.2600.2180 (xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158) 75.50 KB (77,312 bytes) 8/18/2001 10:00 AM Microsoft Corporation c:\windows\system32\browser.dll

I am not sure what this means, I thought I had an Internet Explorer Browser.


The Foxfire page provides these instructions, while my AOL page is open but left behind.

Instructions for Downloading Java on Windows - Firefox and Mozilla

1. Click on the 'Download Now' button to start the download.
2. A dialog box appears to confirm that you intend to allow the installer to proceed.

Netscape 6.2x+ browser: Click Install.

Mozilla 1.2+ browser: Click OK.



Can anyone tell me whats happening I'm confused.

In downloading the Java Runtime Environment a Problem occured, and I need to uninstall it, . .

but I can not find it as stated in the Add and Remove. what will be the best way to uninstall any remaining Java programs in my computer ?

These are the directions ;

To uninstall the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) from your system, use the Add/Remove Programs utility in the Microsoft Windows Control Panel.


Click Start
Select Settings
Select Control Panel
Double click the Add/Remove Programs control panel icon
The Add/Remove control panel displays a list of software on your system, including any Java software products that are on your computer. Select the Java Runtime Environment that you want to uninstall by clicking on it, and then click the Remove button.


I realize that I can find the programs in search files, but what is the process for uninstalling them ?
