I've had this computer (Win 98 SE) since August 2001 and have never
had any major problems with it nor have I ever installed anything that
wasn't absolutely necessary. Now the time has come to install this
Java theng or my work will be extremely limited. As far as I know it's
extremely necessary that I install this theng or I'm out of my job.
Other than this necessity, I agree with you 100%, thanatoid.
Thanks so much for the response and advice.
