Java error, and opening the 'Music Folder' error.

Q: Java error, and opening the 'Music Folder' error.

Alrighty. See, when I go to Aethereality.net, and I go to view their gallery, a BUNCH of their images are broken links. I tagged at the board, and saw that others were experiencing this as well. They were all told to update cookies, and I didn't quite know how to do that. So, I tried to update java, for her images work through java. And well, that didn't quite work out so well.

You see, my laptop was telling me of how there was a java update, so I clicked on it, and when I told it to install, it didn't. I found that rather odd, and I simply don't know why it's doing that. Also, when I downloaded LimeWire, THAT wouldn't work because my Java isn't updated. When I click on the java icon, nothing happens. I deleted LimeWire because that refused to open now, as well.

A friend of mine told me to delete java, then reinstall that. However, that attempt failed miserably. I tried to reinstall it, but it didn't work.

Now onto opening 'My Music'. It's not just with 'My Music', but with 'My Documents', 'My Computer', etc etc. When the 'report error' message comes up, I click 'Debug', and it opens again. I mean, that's the easy way out, but I want it stopped for good.

I've run Norton AntiVirus, and Ad-Aware. I'm clean, as far as they say.

Can anyone help me?

If anyone needs any other information, simply ask.

Preferred Solution: Java error, and opening the 'Music Folder' error.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Java error, and opening the 'Music Folder' error.

If you open up you Java control panel (Probably under "Other Control Panel Options on the left side of the Control Panel window), click on the update tab, and select Update Now.

If this doesn't work, uninstall Java (using the Add/Remove Programs control panel), and then download and install it again from this webpage.

EDIT: Please explain what problems you experienced when you attempted to reinstall it.

Trying to decide who to use for my Medicare Drug Plan, I'm getting this error message from this site (SilverScript). The error (on Firefox 17) occurs after I enter a drug and click enter.

Hello Sienna and welcome to Seven Forums.

Try using JavaRa to delete Java from your computer. There are several "download" buttons on the JavaRa home page. I've circled the download link you should use. Also, the screenshot shows version 2.0 but JavaRa was recently updated to version 2.1. That's the one you should get on the download page.

If JavaRa doesn't work you couild also try the free 30 day trial of Revo Uninstaller Pro. Use the Forced Uninstall option.

I've having a few problems that apparently may be related.

1) Vista Backup stops with Catastrophic error 0x8000FFFF.

2) A search on error 0x8000FFFF says that it may have something to do with Java.

3) Java's site says that I don't have Java installed.

4) Downloading Java ends with a Java error 25099, the zip file wont unzip properly?

5) Explorer closes down frequently and has to re-start.

6) Java is in the "Program files" but not registered in Control Panel un-install programs?

So, what does all this mean and what can I do about it?

How do I find out if I have Java working on my PC? Why wont the Java download unzip?

The only option I can see is to un-install Java from Program Files manually, do a Registry Repair and then start over with trying to install Java again.

I'll do this but I thought that someone may know something else about this that would be important to know.

So, does anyone know anything else about this and what to do?

I am using Windows 7 and Picasa 3.8 and am unable to create a collage on this computer (although I am successful on another one just like it that I own).
I believe the problem relates to accessing the User library for pictures in Windows 7. I am unable to directly write to that file and I believe that may be where Picasa attempts to save a collage. I get a windows error code 512 when I try to write directly to that file (I can write to it indirectly). Not sure if it is a Windows 7 or Picasa problem (or both).
Any help appreciated.

I am using Win XP SP2 on an Athlon dual core processor machine. When I open My Computer and then open the C: folder I get a Data Excecution Prevention error listing Windows Explorer as the program it wants to close. This happens even though I have just booted the system and have not yet started Windows Explorer.
This error is preventing me from accessing any of the folders on my main drive (C:). I can access all other hard drives on the system with no problem. Drive C: is the only drive affected. When I access the Security folder under the control panel, I do not see DEP listed so am unable to try to turn it on or off to see if that has any affect. This problem appeared about a month ago and I don't remember what I might have done to cause the problem. Could Memory modules cause this? I might have swapped the two modules that I have. I understand that DEP is only available on Win XP SP2 and that I should be able to turn it on or off if my hardware processor supports this feature. Because I do not see DEP under the Security Option of the control panel, it seems to me that DEP should not even be active on my machine.

I am using Windows XP Pro. I have three user profiles on our family computer. They all have administrator rights. On my profile when I click on the "program files" folder in windows explorer I can view all the program folders and files. When I go into the other profiles and click on the "program files" folder I get an error message that says "c:\program files is not accessible. Access is denied." I know that in the past I have not had any trouble viewing this folder in any profile. It only happens on the program files folder not any other folders. Anyone know of a solution to this?

A:Access denied error opening a folder.

You probably need to take "ownership" of the file or folder or access the folder by logging in to the other accounts; You will always get access denied if you are not logged in with the account that created them.

As mentioned in the title, I've recently encountered problems while opening the folder in which I download files to. What's different from what I've experienced in the past, is that this error doesn't pop up for any other drive/folder but this specific part of the directory. So I'm wondering is it possible to cut the files to a new folder and delete/avoid this folder? Or are my problems greater than something as simple as this?

Background info:
While attempting to upgrade the expansion for WoW: Burning Crusade, I wasn't able to more or less for the fact that my original drive that came with the computer (dell 2001) is starting to fall apart. ie. corrupt file packets I believe it was. This folder is in the same hard drive, so it just possible that the hard drive is going to randomly do this until it completely malfunctions? Or have I downloaded malware of some sort that was never detected? I've run ad-aware, S&D, Anti-Trojan, Symantec AV multiples times making sure to do updates before each scan, but nothing has come up.

If you could please give me some ideas as to how to fix this problem, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

A couple of weeks ago I downloaded a movie using a P2P

I put the movie into a folder with other movies

When I open the folder the computer freezes for a few seconds with an hourglass pointer indicating it is working and then I get a window with the Dr. Watson postmortem debugger error message stating that explorer needs to close. After a few minutes it does not close and i have to manually close dr watson in the task manager window at which time windows explorer completely closes and re-opens.

I went into the command prompt and manually moved the new movies to a new folder to see if they were the cause but now if I open any folder with movies in it, I get the message.

I feel that the movies I downloaded were embedded with some malware possibly infected by the very people that make the movies to prevent people from downloading illegal movies.

Recently whenever I've used an .exe installer I'll get an error as soon as I click start after choosing the directory, in the picture example I include below, it's of SA-MP, but it happens with any installer I try and use. Installers have worked previously, it's only recently it's stopped working.
The error is;
Error opening files for writing.


What I've tried;
-Full system scan with Comodo AV.
-Revealed hidden files and folders.
-Run the installer in both compatability (Even though it does work on Win7, and as an Administrator).
-Also done the scan on CMD (can't remember exact command).

If you need additional information, don't hesitate to ask.

Hello to everyone!

I am currently experiencing this Java problem that I only encounter when updating my Vuze Bittorrent Client. I am just updating it to newer version but every time I try, the error pops up. The complete error is:

"An error occurred: java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException"

After clicking OK button, the setup ends. And when I re-try to install the update, the Vuze Installation Wizard will show this message:

"The installer did not start up correctly on the last run. This is probably caused by a corrupted Java VM. Do you want to download or manually select the JVM?"

When I choose YES, the installer will download the file but will fail and will show the Java error. When I choose NO, the installer will proceed normally but will show the same Java error.

I manually update my Java to the latest version which is Version 7 Update 45 but problem still persists. I checked my Java version by going to https://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp.

If you have questions, feel free to ask. I need your help on this since I'm a bit cautious when dealing with this Java since I don't know much about it.

Thanks in advance!

A:Java Error : java.lang.RuntimeException when Updating Vuze

Well; first thing i would try is completely uninstalling Java; and then reinstalling it. Then;(make sure any files retrieved from the bit torrent client are backed up if possible) uninstall the bit torrent client and reinstall that. Try these things and report back and we can go from there if not solved.

There's a couple files I have that I want to delete. I don't remember what they are, if I had to guess, I would say some remnants of an incomplete download based on their names. The files have no extension and have no size either.

Whenever I go to delete them, I get the following error:


Cannot delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disc

I don't know what's up with it, but it always gives that error. I've tried to see what renaming does, and it's worse. I cannot rename it, same error, except it says cannot rename. Because the rename stays active, when I double click rename, I actually have to use task manager and close windows explorer. Whenever I try to click off the name, it accepts as me changing it, even if it stayed the same, and brings up the error. It leaves the rename active after the message closes.

Any ideas? There's a couple of them and they're 0KB, so it's not a big deal. However, they do annoy me as they're in my downloads folder, and I use this folder probably the most of any other folder. Thanks guys.

To use HijackThis to remove a stubborn file (this can be tricky so be careful):

Clearly identify the file(s) you want to delete and write down the COMPLETE path, eg, C:\Documents and Settings\MOM\Local Settings\Temp\filename

Start HijackThis,

click on the bottom option 'none of the above, just start the program'

click on the bottom right hand option 'config'

click on the top right hand option 'Misc tools'

click on the 'delete a file on reboot..' box

CAREFULLY work your way through the selection process to the file you want to delete and click on it

Shut down and Reboot

Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - Vista Support!

I have seen error 1324 before - but it does come in many shapes and sizes. So, let's see what we can do to help you through this.

Hi Everyone,

I have a very basic question. I'm almost embarrased to ask it. But, here it is! When I buy a music CD in the store, how do I put the album into the "Music" folder on my hard drive?

I have Windows Vista and Windows Media Player 11.

Thanks, Darlene

That is called "ripping". Use the "Rip" button at the top (or in the menu, depending what your player skin looks like ).

I am running into an issue with users renaming files on a shared drive. When the users try to rename, they get the error "A file name can't contain any of the following characters: \ / : * ? < > |". However, neither the new or old filename contains
any of these characters, or any other invalid characters as far as I can determine, just alphanumeric characters and spaces.When they try to rename it again, it works without an issue.
I have found reports of this error being generated if the file path is too long, but all users are accessing this from a shared drive, and even if the share name is taken into account the file path and name are easily under 100 characters.
I have 3 users on 3 different systems reporting this issue, so I don't think it is user error.
The workstations are running Windows 7 Pro, SP1. The server is Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise, Service Pack 2.
The users are located at a remote site, and accessing the share over a site to site VPN. There are XP workstations at the site as well, that do not appear to be having the issue.
Any help, suggestions, or guidance is greatly appreciated!

I had moved 'My Pictures' folder away from C: \Users\username\My Pictures when I first set the computer up and I had it in another partitioned drive (E.

For space reason I wanted to move it back to it's original location above and moved the whole folder across to the C: but instead of having it as a folder in the username folder as it should be I merged it in error with the username folder!

The folder is now named My Pictures and has the path C: \Users\My Pictures\ in the registry. I have (hopefully) attached the properties of the folder which shows that there is no location tab. The network path is shown as \\HOME\Users\username.

How do I clean up the folder back to it's standard user folder detail without the merged detail of My Pictures and I guess the easier part is to create a new My Pictures folder and point the registry to it (as per the detail in the top line).

Please help a newbie!

Yeah, my friend had her laptop "crash" (aka the harddrive got damaged when her brother dropped it) and so she had to get a new HD. For some reason, when she got it back, the sound didnt work. I'm not sure, but could it be because of the HD having to be replaced? I'll get some specs for later... I'll have to go see her about that or have her give it to me... I'll get that info to you.

In the past year I upgraded my Dell 8100 from Windows ME to XP Pro and added a new hard drive. The old hard drive is now my F: drive and contains music downloaded prior to the upgrade. When I try to play this music I get an error message that says I do not have a license to play the old music (error code 274B).

I have tried to locate the licenses on the F: drive with no success. The music is "legal" and I no longer can find the original CD's to reinstall them.

How do I resolve this problem??

On backing up MSN Music licenses from http://www.corti.com/weblogsascha/ca...spx/Technology


Jake recently asked me if the MSN Music service could be used as a replacement for the "license back-up" function of the Windows Media Player - as licenses for purchased music can be re-downloaded from the MSN Music service. My answer was that both work - with proves to be inaccurate. Thanks, Jake for the update:

<quoted from MSN Music support mail>
Please note that the licenses of MSN Music content cannot be backed up. If you wish to verify this, please perform the following steps:

1. Open Windows Media Player .
2. Go to the MSN Music library .
3. Right-click one of the MSN Music files.
4. Click 'Properties' then the 'License' tab. Please check the license details of the file.

There is no need to worry, Jake. The licenses can be downloaded from the server. All you need to do is play the MSN Music content, sign in to the MSN Music service when prompted to do so, and then click 'I own this song' to initiate the download. You can do this after you've restored your PC. Please make sure, though, that before you attempt to download the licenses, the computer is properly configured for MSN Music.

I thought I'd post the resolution to a problem I've been having with Music Match. Since DLing and running v10 some weeks ago I have been plagued with a very persistent error that wants to report back to Microsoft. I'm talking dozens of windows per hour. The header is about routing and tracing manager or something or other and the details relate it back to MMDIAG.exe

Musicmatch tech support has been unresponsive in over two weeks of multiple inquires. I found a link to a similar problem with an older version of MM on the intel audio player support forums. Following their advice here is what I did:

I deleted all .log files along with mmjblog.txt and altlog.txt from the c:/program files/musicmatch/musicmatch jukebox folder. Once I did that the error reporting window stopped appearing.

I hope this helps anyone else running into this issue since MM tech support is sooo helpful.

Thanks. I own a version of Music Match and this is one of the reasons I keep ignoring there offers to sell me an updated version of it. When I want to see something different I just change the skin.
