Do you have something called "tubesock" installed?

i have no idea.

I am trying to work part time with a work at home job and i need to get into the schedule to pick hours and also open the page where i take calls. Each shows this message. But i can open it at my fulltime office job, at my mothers house and my sisters house.

On all of the the computers that do allow me to get on I didnt have to download anything called tubesock the pages just opened once i installed java or updated it.

I am not computer savvy so i have no idea what tubesock is and wouldnt know how to find it on the computer and every time i ask someone for help they say i have to re install java. but i did over and over and still cant get it in(deleting everytime so that i dont have it on multiple times). I do see however that in trusted certificates in the java console nothing is there but i dont know how to put the company in there.

Once it get back home I will post what it says in the java box where you normally go to clear stuff. I remember it saying something like can not find unknown something and a whole bunch of figures i know nothing about.

maybe that will help

My wild guess is that you have tubesock installed and it is interfering with the Java VM somehow.

So there is something about your particular computer.

My first guess would be you have a Firewall or anti-virus program installed which is not allowing the connection.

Another possibility is the browser you are using and its various security settings.

A google search reveals that you (or somebody) have been spraying this question all over the net in Linux related forums. This brings up the question: What are the various operating systems/browsers that you have suceeded/failed on???

Whoever told you the problem would be fixed by removing and reinstalling Java was blowing smoke.
