Ok I've been getting a little frustrated over this, and I've tried everything that I could possibly think of.

Java won't work, plain and simple. When I got to a website (in Firefox and IE), I get a little red X (its not like the red X you get for pictures, its a little more groovy.)

I've downloaded and installed Java Runtime Environment Version 5.0 Update 5 and J2SE v 1.4.2_09 JRE and I've restarted several times. I've installed them seperately and then restarted the computer seperately. And I still get "Load Java Applet Failed," in the status bar for IE, and like I said I get the same proble in Firefox. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You.

I've also checked the box in the Tools > Internet Options > Advanced Tab > Use Java 5.

I've also tested it with several websites. I can't load the chat here, can't play Yahoo games, and can't use Google Maps (on there website, but I can use Google Earth.)

System Specs
Windows XP Pro SP2 (latest updates installed)
Firefox 1.07
Latest version of IE
1GB of RAM

In the Windows control panel you will find a Java Control Panel; open this and go to the Advanced tab. Expand <Applet> tag support. Make sure the Mozilla and Netscape box is checked.

I just tried that and I got this message:

I got it fixed. I had to uninstall Java 5.0 and the Java 1.4.2 and then I reinstallted 1.4.2 from Firefox (extension wizard) and then installed JAva 5.0.
