Java......................................whats the problem !
Hi all.....I'm a caver/miner/potholer and for many years have used hotmail/photobucket and several other sites with no problems.
I am running windows xp pro with sp2 (updates turned off) and running firefox 5.0.1 to get on the internet with java 6 update 26, around 6-10 weeks ago my computer has thrown a fit so bad i can no longer do the following
1 if i go to my photobucket logon page there are 2 tabs 'logon' and 'sign up'........the logon button no longer works ( if i go to the tools/error consol i am told 'jq is not defined') so the log on button does not work
2 if i go to my hotmail i can sign in but i the tab 'hotmail' is dead so i can not access my mail at all, further down the page is a heading 'hotmail highlights' and under this is stated 'goto in box (26)' but this tab is also dead
3 if i goto facebook i can log on ok but the tabs to do with upload pictures is dead so is the upload link tab
there are many other sited i use with issues similar to the above
I have been told it is my java at fault but no one knows how to sort the problem out, I have formatted my computer and re installed all that i usually do (which use to work) but now it does not, could anyone point me in the right direction please.
sorry for the question within this introduction I suppose in short i'm stuck in a rut which is slowly getting filled in.
thanks for anyone reading this and to anyone who can assist .....cpcnick
