Howdy,

I have been to a couple of weather web sites and tried to view their satellite weather radar features. I always get the cue that I must first enable Java on my browser. ( Windows XP 2000 Home SP2)

Could someone please explain what Java is and how to enable it ? Does enabling Java make my computer more susceptible to malware, viruses, etc.

Thank You,
Dennis :thumbsup:

Once you install JaveRuntimeEnvironment, you will find a Java Control Panel in Windows Settings/ Control Panels. Go to the Advanced tab and check the browser(s) you are using in the <applet> tag support option.
