JVM problem on Windows 2000

This morning when I start my system, I encounter some error titled
WJView Error with a message like
"Could not locate Java Virtual Machine, class not registered"
I then have problem run "java", (javac works ok, when execute some mesg like java is not a valid command shows, all "java" related command not working java -help, java -version ...).
I re-install SDK then re-start, same WJView error appears, but this time "java" related command runs OK now.
Anyone has similar experience ? How could I fix it ?

Hi, Chi -
I've seen odd problems with Win2k and Java, all of which were fixed by going to Sun, downloading and installing the new JVM from the auto-download site, then rebooting the machine.
Hope that helps!

I agree. Here's the link:
