Hello when leopard switches on after the login, a black window Terminal opens with some text in it.
Also i cant open jnlp files as i get this window instead of opening the jave file that let's me use a chat window. How do i handle this ? everything was working last week, now it is not. Thanks guys and the text file window i get when i click the jnlp file is:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    As for your first problem, as I understand, every time you log in, you get a Terminal window with some text.... Does this happen for all users, or just one? My guess is that you have somehow set something to open up when you log in, so that's what it's doing. You can go to the System Prefs, and then to the Accounts page, and finally to the Login Items tab, and if you see if by any chance you have Terminal set as a login item. If so, highlight it, and click the "minus" button at the bottom. If you don't have Terminal set as a login item, I'd look for some document that opens Terminal when you log in.

    Sorry, but I have no ideas about your 2nd problem. There have been some Java updates lately, so perhaps what was working is no broken. You might try making sure you have the latest version of your "jnlp" file... there may be a new one that works the the newer Java engine.

    And as for your second problem, there have been problems with the recent Java updates and jnlp files. See if the solutions given in this Discussion topic help with your problem:

    There's a lot of information about various problems with jnlp files since the updates.
