I have Java 6 update N 07 I just got this weird error "could not read file C:\PROGRA~1\Java\jre6\lib\rt.jar" after trying to access applets ( I tried my applet and another website also), these applets usually work fine. I get the error on IE, Firefox and Opera. On Firefox it freezes the browser, on IE it closes the window and on Opera it closes the browser. This is an important error. Java stopped working after that until I reboot my computer. This is a showstopper.

Please work on that.
Thanks,
Carl Antaki

It is an early access build clearly only intended for testing and not productive use.
Is a shame that you are so unfriendly here.

I'm not being unfriendly it's just because it's too bad I can't use update N anymore :)
