I have helped friends in the past with Java difficulties. This is the the routine I use:

First, remove Sun Java (if thats the one you have).

1: Install/Reinstall Microsoft Virtual machine; this can be downloaded here for all versions of Windows

click here

2. Open Internet Explorer, click on Tools menu on the top bar, select Internet Options, Advanced tab, scroll down to JIT compiler for virtual machine enabled.

Ensure this ticked - If it isn't, click a tick in the box, and then reboot your machine.

3. Firewall:

I have Zone alarm pro, and in the settings, Privacy, Mobile Code, there are 2 boxes referring to Java. Probably Norton I/Security has similar settings; check this.

4. An add-blocker can cause Java to not operate properly. If you have one, try disabling it.

5. You may have your IE security settings too high. Medium should be sufficient.

Note: This site will report if, and what version of Java, is installed.

Try this site to see if the Java problem is general, or just confined to the Yahoo site.

click here

You should see a moving picture.
