  1. After loging in, the slash screen simply hangs indefinately. TWS never loads up. Any ideas?

    Vista SP1
    Java: Version 6 update 7 (build 1.6.0_07-b06)

  3. You need to do some work.

    I've run it on xp, vista, windows server 2008 and windows server 2008 x64.

    Try uninstalling and reinstalling.

  6. IB recommends using the latest Java 1.5, not 1.6.
     
  7. You have a virus. Delete all those porn photos you downloaded last night. That should also delete the virus.
