1/ The little red crosses are where pictures are supposed to be - they are enclosed in a larger square - these are the boarders of the picture - a web page is made up of text and pictures of differing format. Java is just one type of graphics - then there is jif or jpg - when a red cross appears it means the picture cant be displayed - sometimes its just due to a slow or busy web site - right click on the red cross and select "show picture" - If there are lots of them try and refresh the page.
If this doesn't help let us know - but keep your computer up to date with Java and windows updates.
2/ If you have downloaded Real player it will appear in your programs folder and few other places - believe me if you downloaded it you will know. If not here's the link
3/ As for Java 1.4 that is a horse of a different
colour - If you cant find it in your programs folder (Java web start) look in your add/remove programs..
The latest version is version 5 - here is the link
