Choose Your Java

On account of legal issues, Microsoft did not include its Java Virtual Machine (VM) on the original Windows XP CD-ROM. Instead, it was treated as an Install on Demand component: The first time you visited a site with Java code, you were prompted to get the VM from Microsoft's site. Microsoft's Java VM is now distributed as part of Service Pack 1.

If you prefer, download and install Sun's Java VM from http://java.sun.com/getjava. If both Microsoft's and Sun's VMs are installed on your system, you can select which one to use by opening Internet Explorer's Tools menu and selecting Internet Options. Then open the Advanced tab and scroll down to where you see Java (Sun). Place a check next to Use Java 2 for Sun's Java VM. Deselect it and Microsoft VM will be reactivated.
