Solved Windows 7 Java Problems

January 16, 2013 at 17:30:05
Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium, 2.10Ghz/3 GB

Hi can someone please help if possible.

Tried to change the Tags: Its a Toshiba satellite 2.10 GHz 3G RAM

I have a Toshiba satellite running Windows 7 and until recently everything was running fine, however i run a couple of programs that run Java, which I have not used for a while.

I went to run one of them and it would not work and I noticed that Java had been flagged as having security problems, so I updated to the latest version 1.7.0_11, however no matter what I do I can't get anything to work using Java

As a test I know that Think broadband Speed tester uses Java so I have been using that as a focal point.

So far I have done the following, but still no joy:

In IE 9 Checked, add on’s
Manage Add-ons
Name Deployment Toolkit
Publisher Oracle America, Inc.
Status Enabled
File date ‎16 ‎January ‎2013, ‏‎22:49
Version 7.0.110.21

Name Java(tm) Plug-In SSV Helper
Publisher Oracle America, Inc.
Status Enabled
File date ‎16 ‎January ‎2013, ‏‎22:50
Version 7.0.110.21

Status Enabled
File date ‎16 ‎January ‎2013, ‏‎22:49
Version 7.0.110.21
Load time 0.16 s


Cleared the Java cache In Java Control Panel

Un installed Java and ran CCleaner

Reinstalled Java

On java Home page ran the test Got the Applet > Selected Run > Verified Java Version

Congratulations!
You have the recommended Java installed (Version 7 Update 11

Have tried the offline installer package and Online Package when downloading Java

Checked to see if the Java plug-in is enabled in the browser(s) = Yes IE9 & Chrome

It is a 32 bit Java version on a 32 bit machine

On the Java home page when I test it I get an Applet appearing and when I press the space bar it informs me that I have the latest version installed along with the following;

Java Plug-in 10.11.2.21
Using JRE version 1.7.0_11-b21 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM
User home directory = C:\Users\Bob
----------------------------------------------------
c: clear console window
f: finalize objects on finalization queue
g: garbage collect
h: display this help message
l: dump classloader list
m: print memory usage
o: trigger logging
q: hide console
r: reload policy configuration
s: dump system and deployment properties
t: dump thread list
v: dump thread stack
x: clear classloader cache
0-5: set trace level to <n>
----------------------------------------------------
Any help much appreciated as I do not look forward to doing a reinstall.

Toby

P.S Have ran Avast and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware had have found nothing.

Use TFC & then JavaRa.

TFC
http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/file...
http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/TFC.exe
http://www.itxassociates.com/OT-Too...
Please download TFC - Temporary File Cleaner by Old Timer, saving it to your desktop.
* Open the file and close any other windows.
* It will close all programs itself when run, make sure to let it run uninterrupted.
* Click the Start button to begin the process. The program should not take long to finish it's job
* Once its finished it should reboot your machine, if not, do this yourself to ensure a complete clean.

To remove old and redundant versions of the Java Runtime Environment:
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System...
http://www.softpedia.com/progScreen...
http://singularlabs.com/software/ja...
What JavaRa does is to check if your computer has the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE).
If the version you have installed has been superseded by a newer version the program will download and install this newer version for you, by running Java’s update program.
JavaRa then allows you to remove all possible older versions of this program. This way it will ensure that the security of your PC is enhanced will create extra space on your hard disk.

Hi JohnW
Tried both of your suggestions:
TFC removed some files, nothing significant.
JavaRA2.1 checked my system and informed me that I had the latest version
Installed JRE Versions:
========================
Java 7 Update 11 version: 7.0.110

I again tried to see if Java was working, however still no joy, thanks for the suggestions.

Will have to keep looking to see if I can find something that will help me or else it will have to be a reinstall.

Only good thing is that I have my data backed up to a Seagate 1 TB HD so it would only be all those ******g updates and service packs that will have to be downloaded, before an exam in Feb - oh the joy.

Toby

P.S Tied it with the Firewall Disabled and it still would not function.

"TFC removed some files, nothing significant"
It cleaned out your Java cache, that could have been corrupted & would of helped.

Maybe it's a browser add-in that is making Java complain.

Hi
I have disabled all Browser Add-ins on both IE9 and Chrome, still no joy?

Will carry on looking, just hate being beaten.
I will leave the Browser add ons disabled just for now.

Thanks Again for the suggestion.

Download Security Check by screen317 from one of the following links and save it to your desktop.
http://screen317.spywareinfoforum.o...
http://screen317.changelog.fr/Secur...
* Unzip SecurityCheck.zip and a folder named Security Check should appear.
* Save it to your Desktop.
* Double click SecurityCheck.exe. If you run Windows Vista or 7, right click and choose 'Run as Administrator'.
o If you are asked by Windows to run this program or not, please click 'Yes' or 'Run'.
o When you see a console window, press any key to continue scanning.
o Wait while it scans.
o If your firewall alerts you of Security Check, please press 'Allow' or similar.
* A Notepad document should open automatically after scan is completed. It will be called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
Note: If a security program requests permission from dig.exe to access the Internet, allow it to do so.

Thanks for the log, it's pretty good.

"Google Chrome 23.0.1271.97
Google Chrome 24.0.1312.52"
Maybe you have 2 versions installed or one hasn't uninstalled properly.

"Adobe Reader 10.1.5 [color=red][b]Adobe Reader out of Date![/b][/color]"
Needs updating.

Hi Johnw
Looks as though Java is best avoided at the moment, will look at other non Java based programs.
I find it very strange that everywhere you read that people are advising users to disable it, when so many programs, etc and big Corps are using it?

However thanks for your help and assistance in trying to fix this problem.
Will have a look at the suggestions and see what I can use, thanks again.
