I have a company I use, http://www.photobox.co.uk and their coding is so buggy.  I guess it would be Java.  Is there any way to disable all Java when I go to that site only?  Maybe even use a webbrowser that doesn't have any fancy capabilities so it doesn't lock up and trip over their code.

If, by Java, you mean Javascript (they are NOT the same thing at all), then yes, you can disable Javascript functionality in most major browsers.  Go into the Security settings or Advanced settings, if you dig deep enough you'll find a setting (perhaps more than one) for disabling Javascript.  Warning:  the site might not work at all without Javascript enabled.  For instance, in Internet Explorer 7, you go into Tools\Internet Options to the Security tab, press the button to set a Custom level of security, then page down until you see the group tag Scripting on the left - the first setting, for active scripting, you should set to Disabled.

Firefox with firebug (or web developer) installed allows you lots of control over whats enabled/disabled.

Get you a Firefox browser and install NoScript as an add-on. Also, as per @objects, get firebug. Both of these are great tools and Firefox is a great browser. See here: http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp
