Microsoft virtual machine (Microsoft VM) enables Java programs to run on Windows platforms. It is included in most versions of Windows and Internet Explorer.
- Fixes a security vulnerability that affects the ByteCode Verifier component of the Microsoft VM
- This VM build includes all previously released security fixes, as well as fixing a newly reported security vulnerability that affects the ByteCode Verifier and could allow an attacker to run code of his or her choice on a user’s system

This is simply the best way to run Java. The mainstream app is just that, as slow as molasses. I know in Windows as late as Vista this will work (what I want to find out is if it works with Win7 and Win8, which I think it will). I also think MS Java is more secure than the mainstream Java VM application, as Security Software exists solely to fix security holes in (mainstream) Java and flash, as claimed by advertisements for PC Matic (Made in the U.S.A. available at PCMATIC.COM). It makes you wonder why MSFT won't make a MS Flash Virtual Machine. Of course Silverlight is very similar, but there should be an MS Flash Virtual Machine and a new version of MS Java Virtual Machine (to parse any new Java Code there may be.)

Outdated and contains unpatched security vulnerabilities. Windows XP SP2 uninstalls this for a reason. Do NOT install this unless you want "drive by" spyware. Install Sun's Java instead - much safer.

To be honest, I've yet to try this version. But I hope and pray it's more stable and less sluggish than the Sun VM. Sun, completely on its own, has made me shudder whenever I have to use a Java app. Alas, excellent programs like Freemind come in no other favlour, so I'm forced to use Java.
If only Sun would develop a version of Java that doesn't appear to be dragging a program through molasses.
