Virtual Machine JAVA (SUN) support
introduction to windows problems:
On the Microsoft Windows platform, the Java support seems frequently become unstable. The result is that an applet that loaded correctly before, no longer loads. Secondly whenever a Windows based program is running, it's consuming memory resources - unfortunately many Windows programs do not "clean up" after themselves and often leave valuable memory "locked", slowing your computer's performance! In addition, memory is often locked in pages so if your program needed 100 bytes of memory, it's actually locking up 2,048 bytes (a page of memory)! Until now, The only way to free up this "locked" memory was to reboot your computer. There are many other issues that might effect the performance. It is important that you machine should be fine tuned. Some of the recommended procedures.
Microsoft Virtual Machine VM
To configure the Java:
Microsoft Internet Brower Select (1) Tools menu (2) Internet Options(3) Advanced Tab (4) Microsoft VM or JAVA (Sun) enable/disable switches as required.

too long to load a lesson?
This course uses Java applets. On the Microsoft Windows platform, the Java support seems frequently become unstable. The result is that an applet that loaded correctly before, no longer loads. This course works reasonable good even in older machine Pentium I 133 MHZ with only 32 of RAM provided that your machine is fine tuned.
If you are having problem with loading images and sound (Java Applets) you need to optimize your machine performance, please try the following technique which divided into two part one deals with your Browser and second deals with your operating systems or your machine itself.
