Description
On my PC, Java Update kicked in and popped up a dialog for Google Toolbar with the following text:
	"Install a free program with the Java(TM)" 

I've never before seen java referred to as "the Java", and Java is not being used as an adjective in the sentence. 

See attached screenshot. This was Windows XP.

EVALUATION

It appears the MASTHEADTITLE control text is incorrect.  I took a look at it in the sponsors ws, and the 1033 entry is not in English for some reason.  Some how it got encrypted into the installshield l10n language.  The fix would be to make sure it's in English.

Looks like both MASTHEADTITLE and MASTHEADPLURAL had the same issue.

The trademark character isn't supported by all text editors, so it's possible this happened during the translation of the string tables used by the transforms.
