|Hey, this is something I noticed just a bit ago. It's kinda gotten tangled, so I'm looking for other help.|
I was trying to watch a youtube video, and it kept saying an error had occurred. I checked my java, and it said I had 7 update 9, and that 7 update 10 was available. I tried updating, and I kept getting the message that Java wasn't working.
I had the java platform and toolkit before updating, afterward I only had the toolkit.
I tried reinstalling Java several times. I never got the platform back, no matter how many times I tried. I eventually restored the computer to just before I tried updating, and I have the platform and toolkit both installed again. The add-ons manager says Java Deployment Toolkit 22.214.171.124 10.9.2.5 and Java (TM) Platform SE 7 U9 10.9.2.5.
Now, when I try and test the current version on Java - I go to the verify page, it says there's a newer version, and I click 'test the current version' - Firefox closes. No crash report, just gone. I also cannot open the Java control center in the control panel.
I did have a virus recently, but I cleaned it up. I have noticed that some things, like Autorun, are working strangely afterward - but I had youtube working a few days ago, so I assume Java was as well.
Youtube is working again, btw. As if nothing ever happened. It's taunting me.
Does anyone have any idea what could be going on?
