Right, thanks for the correction on that.

All you should be entering to run the program is:

    C:\javaprograms> java HelloWorld

And the program will run. You don't even need to put the .class
entension on the end. Just make sure that you are in the same directory
as the file you are trying to run. All this should be done from the
command line.
