Did you try reinstalling Java?
According to this page, there are 3 different methods for auto refresh to work:

One depends upon html coding, another on java applets, and a third on javascript.  Do you have java enabled in your IE?  Have you tried the repair option of IE?  

When you go to Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs, find Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 in the list of installed programs, click on it, click on the Add/Remove button, then you will be given a menu with an option to "repair the current configuration" (or something to that effect.)  Choose that.

Or, if for some reason or other IE is not in the list of installed programs, you can do this:

Type this in the Run dialog box off the Start Menu.

For Win9x/ME:

rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"

For WinXP:

rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 C:\windows\inf\ie.inf

This command is case sensitive.

None of the above has fixed the problem. Any other suggestions.
I have the same problem on one of my XP boxes, but the refresh (html meta refresh rather than java) works on other boxes!
