    Default Cannot run radar after explorer 8 update

    I am not very good at fixing computers. I can defrag and do general maintanance, but when it comes to the more difficult things, I'm lost.
    I am running windows XP. I have recently updated to explorer 8 and service pack 3. Since then, I haven't been able to get into a chat room that I go to. Also if I go to a site like NOAA's National Weather Service[/url], click on radar, click on the map and the area that I want to check, then try to go to base loop... I get a blank box with a red x in the upper left corner. There is a message at the bottom that says;
    "Java is necessary for radar looping and is best optimized using Java version 1.4.2 or higher.
    Go to] Java + You[/url] for more information regarding Java."

    So I have downloaded the new version 6 update 13, and I have followed the steps that tell you how to go into your internet options, and click on the java stuff. Still I can't watch my radar to see if the storm is coming.

    I live in tornado alley and with tornado season approaching, I would like to be able to see if I should abandon the computer and run for shelter.

    Can anyone please help me?

    Your best bet is to contact the creators of the program you wish to use. You may get someone who knows more here, but this is a site for folks who create java programs, not for maintenance of others programs. best of luck.
