Java in XP

    A friend asked me to look at his new computer running XP. On one
    website he wants to view a series of link buttons on the site show up
    as little red "x" and are inactive.

    When I checked his security setting "microsoft vm" does not show up.
    I assume this means that Java script does not run

    A little reading at the Microsoft site tells me that Virtual Machine
    is not under license to microsoft any more and therefore not installed
    with any version newer than SP1.

    Can anyone tell me if that means that I have to download VM from
    another site? Is there a version (Sun Micosystems?) that is
    preferable? Is there anything tricky in installing it?

    I would hate to screw up his new machine which otherwise is running
    fine.

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    from somewhere like kazza
