I have
import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
public class Greet extends Applet implements ActionListener
And when compiled i get errors:
C:\Java\Greet\ Package java.awt.event not found in import.
import java.awt.event.*;
C:\Java\Greet\ Interface ActionListener of class Greet not found.
public class Greet extends Applet implements ActionListener
I recently had to reinstall JCreator...Am i missing something?

So what I am assuming is this is probably an Editor problem more than a JAVA problem since you are not compiling at the command line.
1. See if you can compile it at the command line
2. In Jcreator, go to Configure --> Options
3. Click on JDK Profiles
4. See if there is one. If it is red, then something is wrong.
5. If there is not one, click the New button and tell JCreator where your jdk folder is on your hard drive.
6. If all that fails, let me know.
