    Could you have a virus? If so, try one of these free online virus

    This one has a choice of a Quick or a Complete check. The quick check
    could miss the virus.


    then click the Security check link. free online virus scan

    I had the same problem for awhile. I didn't worry about it because the
    games I wanted to play were available elsewhere and worked with Netscape
    4.8. But, when the Zone games went to the Shockwave format, I tried
    again.. Still no luck, so I disabled Sun Java and enabled the JIT
    compiler, and got better results. Later I got the latest version of
    Java VM, disabled JIT, updated the Shockwave applet and, I believe all
    the games now work.
