  The Microsoft Java Virtual Machine (MS Java VM) handles Java  applets on web pages, compiling and executing them.
  Currently Microsoft no longer supports the MS Java VM, and  preinstalled machines with Windows XP and Service Pack 1a (SP1a)  come without it. Older machines still have the MS Java VM. 

  The   Sun Microsystems Java VM is a replacement for the now  obsolete MS Java VM. Instructions on replacing the MS Java VM  with the Sun Java VM are as follows: 

  1. Click Start, Run and enter:

      RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection java.inf,UnInstall 

  2. Click Yes to confirm the uninstall, and restart your system  when it's complete. 

  3. Delete the following if they are still present: 
    • The folder c:\windows\java 
    • c:\windows\inf\java.pnf 
    • c:\windows\system32\jview.exe 
    • c:\windows\system32\wjview.exe 

  4. Click Start, Run and enter regedit to start  the Registry Editor. 
  5. Browse to the following keys, highlight and delete them: 
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Java VM 
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet  Explorer\AdvancedOptions\JAVA_VM 
  * For Windows NT4 and Windows 2000, replace  c:\windows with c:\winnt.
  * For Windows 95, 98, 98SE and ME, replace  c:\windows\system32 with c:\windows\system

  You can now download the Sun Java VM from here:
