    Whatever Javascript is being used to open these demos causes both browsers on my WinXP pro system to freeze. IE 6 and Mozilla 1.5. Does anybody have any ideas as what settings I would changed to fix this. Thanks.

    The driver for these is JAVA not JavaSript.

    If you have an older version a IE you will likely need to update your Java Drivers.

    As you may know MS lost the Java fight in court with SUN and is pulling their support for MSjava in favor of the SUN Java liscense - you can go to Sun Java.com and get the download for your browser:

    Click on the big "Get It Now" Button. Its a one click instant install.
