    I have a lappie thqt originally ran Win 2000. WinXP Pro has since been loaded over the original O/S.

    The latest Java update, doesn't recognise the change.

    How to fix? (Don't have the original O/S discs.)

    Is the java auto update feature turned on?

    Which version of java have you installed and which was the latest update prior to this problem?

    Default

    All I can see that you might require is this ...


    Verifying Java Version
    Oops! You don't have the recommended Java installed.
    Your Java version is Version 6 Update 22. Please click the button below to get the recommended Java for your computer.

    NOTE: If you recently completed your Java software installation, you may need to restart your browser (close all browser windows and re-open) before verifying your installation.


    Java is an annoying programme!

    Just in case if you are so much annoyed, you can remove that java auto update function. If you are interested for that, try out following,

    1) Go to C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin
    Then right click on the javacpl.exe and choose run as administrator. Go to Update tab and un-check the check for java update.

    OR

    2) Go to registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy\EnableJavaUpdate and set this value to 0. This will disable the java auto update.

    Make sure that you are logged in as administrator.

    Hope that helps,
