When I try to install Java it says "Installer Java cannot proceed with current Internet connection settings" I have tried everything I know to do but, I am just an amateur.
I have Windows XP Professional Svc Pack 3. Just realized I have XP Professional - used to be Home Edition. What is the difference? Sorry to throw a 2nd question in here - just noticed this one when I check system info.
Firstly, for the Professional vs Home topic; if you didn't upgrade and pay for it, Windows doesn't just magically upgrade itself. There is a pretty big difference between XP Home and XP Professional. Go to Start > Run and type in "winver". That will tell you for sure what version of Windows you have.
