Scan Your Systen in computing.net

Hi,
I deleted my PC credentials and then tried to scan my new windows 7 Pro PC. It flashed for a second and never did anything. Is it a problem with windows 7 and computing.net?

I tried it 3 or 4 times, no error message, it just flashes and dissappears
Thanks

I have the same problem with Win7 Pro 64 bit. Tried it with IE8 and Opera 10.10.

Running the scan sometimes give an error pop up with the title Java(TM) Web Start 1.6.0_177 and the message "Welcome screen: receive failed", sometimes no error message at all.

Hey,

It might not be compatible with the 64-bit version of Windows 7. Has it worked on this for anyone?

sabertooth, try deleting your information and then scanning, see if that gives you the error

Using FF, I just did the above & cleared my browser cache & rescanned the machine without any issues.

You might want to uninstall all previous versions of Java on your machine & reinstall the latest version ... see the Java Troubleshooting link below.

I un and re-installed the java, now the options i get when I clcik on scan now, is to find or save. There is no run option. Then when I find a solution to open it with, it loads it and disappears.
So IE8 and Firefox do not work for me.

XpUser4Real,

Run CrapCleaner to clean out your cache & temp files before rescanning your machine. FYI, I do not get a run option either. What I got each time was open with & an option to save the file. Choosing "open with" -- which is essentially the same thing as run -- then launches the Java scanner without problems.

I had the same issue a good while ago and tried uninstalling and reinstalling java and the problem persisted. After a bit I just desided it wasn't that important. I later ran into an issue with a virus and reformatted all my hardrives. After getting all set up again I was able to scan the system. I am not sure what could have been changed during the reformat as I went back to all the same programs as before.

Hi,

So, it looks like using the latest version of java will fix these issues? Can you confirm?

Thanks,
Justin

Hmm,

Well, as you probably know, that software is not something I can fix. Perhaps once it becomes a bigger issue, I will re-hire the developer to fix that and other minor bugs.

It's ok, I don't need the credentials there anyways as I do lots of repairs and I can always add them as I need them.

I had this problem when I went from XP Pro 64 to Windows 7 Ultimate RC 64. I more or less assumed it had something to do with the RC. Someone told me there was a problem with the 64 bit and conflicting java,having both versions 32 and 64. I just didn't bother with it and it seemed to work itself out. Java update maybe? If I remeber right I had a java problem with another site and uninstalled all the versions of java. When I tried to run a program from that site that required java I let it install through them and it seemed to fix everything. I know that is of no real help here though sorry.
