program hangs

Last week, I did a clean install of XP home. After the install, every time I go to play Yahoo Pinochle, when I leave the site, the site refuses to close. I have to go to task manager and manually do an end task. Also, when I try to access another site by clicking on a Favorite, or a URL shortcut on my desktop, it wont go to that site until I do an end task on the Yahoo site. I had to install Java Runtime Environment V 1.4.2_06 in order to play the Yahoo games. Somthing tells me that the version of Java is casuing me some problems. The reason I suspect Java is that the game doesnt load like it did before I did the clean install. Plus, the appearance of the game graphics (mainly type font) doesnt look anything like it did before. Is there a site that I can get an earlier version of Java? Or is that part of the problem?

Thanks
