    Install messed up Java/Javascript in Windows XP

      I was installing the latest version of McAfee Internet Security and during the install process about 3/4 of the way through, the Mcafee install screen went blank. I let it sit for 10 minutes and it eventually came back with install complete.

      After install, I could not open Internet Explorer (worked previously). I rebooted. Still nothing. So, I did a system restore. I was now able to get into Internet Explorer but javascript wasn't working. I thought maybe mcafee did something to IE during the weird installation, so I installed a more recent version of IE - IE8 onto the computer. IE8 works, but java is not working. I noticed it goes beyond IE... Java doesn't work on my whole Windows XP computer now. I cannot get into applications that run this (ie. System Restore and even the McAfee Security Center screen). They just show up as blank screens.

      Any advice??
