Microsoft no longer supports JAVA (vjm) for xp... i like playing backgammon on yahoo!, and their site recommended downloading Sun's java....and i did. It does work, sort of, but the old java worked better. does anyone happen to know what version would be best for loading java applets for yahoo games? I suppose maybe the old java is on my XP CD, could it be reinstalled, w/o reinstalling XP completely? (the sun version just does not seem to reset itself unless you completely exit ie6 and then restart it...) I just don't like the idea of backwards progress in the way something works - HandsOff!
