Weird Win 8 Java error; jumping to app panel when allowing Java use in browser

Q: Weird Win 8 Java error; jumping to app panel when allowing Java use in browser

My bank wants me to use Java when logging in to my bank account, and my browser (Chrome) wants me to allow Java to start. When I click "always allow on this site" or what ever it says in English, the browser disappears and the Win 8 app panel pops up. Pretty random. Everything works well in Firefox, but this weirdosity happens every time in Chrome. 

Preferred Solution: Weird Win 8 Java error; jumping to app panel when allowing Java use in browser

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.)

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 haven't used my laptop in about a year (besides as an access point for my desktop). Because of this, Java was severely outdated. I went to my University and attempted to connect to the internet, I couldn't get it to work. I ended up using their network connection wizard, which was a Java applet. I had heard that certain updates of Java had security vulnerabilities with applets, but I figured since I was using a trusted applet from my university I would be fine.
The first thing that happened is that my wireless icon on my taskbar changed from the wireless bars to the icon you have when you have an ethernet cable connected. Okay, no big deal probably just a bug right? I went on using my laptop for the rest of the day, and accessed a lot of sensitive information with it including my bank account and my campus information service. I got home and plugged the ethernet cable back into my laptop (that's how I use my laptop's wifi card) but internet on my desktop wasn't working. This happens sometimes, so I restarted both computers but the problem persisted. I thought maybe the wizard messed with my network settings, and went to the Network Connections section of control panel to try to fix it; but it didn't show any of my networks. It was completely blank. I googled the problem, and discovered it may be a problem with my wireless card. I opened Device Manager as instructed, and it was blank as well. 
At this point I decided a System Restore was a good ... Read more

I've been doing some reading about Java and how it relates to system security and vulnerability. Been thinking about removing it altogether, but not ready to do that just yet. I would at least like to make sure my Java is set to check for updates every day. However the Update tab is missing from the Java Control Panel.

I'm currently running Java SE 6 Update 33 (just updated today), and in Control Panel it says it's the 32-bit version. This is on a Win7 x64 machine. Do I need to get the 64 bit version?

Should I be using Java SE 6 Update 33, or Java SE 7u5?

A:Where is the Java Update tab in the Java Control Panel?

Nevermind, I noticed that I had both SE 6 Update 20 and Update 33 listed in Uninstall Programs. After removing 20, the Update tab appeared. So I set it to check for updates daily, and then hit Update Now. Now it has installed SE 7u5, and did in fact uninstall SE 6 Update 33.

Also the 64-bit version is only for 64-bit browsers, which I never use because I've heard they don't work that great with many web pages.

Basically after spending 3 hours of my life trying to search what this problem could be, I concede that I just cannot run java apps on any browser. Help please. I can install the latest java (jre-6u27-windows-i586-s.exe) and it seems to finish installing fine... But when I try to test the installation and run any java appliaction on the java website, it just hangs the browser after a few seconds. Same too when I try to run a java app on any other website. Have tried repeatedly on latest Firefox *and* Opera. Have tried uninstalling and re-installing java multiple times, but still the same problem every time. Just cannot run java! Please note too the following:

I have also tried using JavaRa to delete all registry references and old strings before re-booting and trying multiple fresh installs but no matter what I do, my machine just won't run java without the browser hanging.

Also, in control panel, I tried clicking the java applet - javacpl.exe it just launches a message box on the screen, with a yellow triangle exclamation mark in the top left, with the following unintelligible message: C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe -Xbootclasspath/a:"C:\Program Files (x86)\java\jre6\bin\..\lib\deploy.jar" -Duser.home="C:\Users\Administrator" com.sun.deploy.panel.ControlPanel

Java Runtime Environment

Hi, is the Java Runtime environment related to the Java that runs in a browser?

If I download and install Java Runtime will I still be able to disable javascript in a browser?

Is it even safe to have Java Runtime on your PC as I am aware that java has a lot of vulnerabilities when it comes to browsers.

The reason I ask is because I need Java Runtime to use DirSyncPro, but given its reputation I'm a bit hesitant.


A:Is Java Run Time Environment different than Java in a browser?

JRE is the Java that runs in your browsers. If DirSyncPro does not run in any browser, you can just disable Java in your browsers.

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.

I am having issues getting Java to Install on a Windows 7 Pro PC in a stand alone environment. 
Error Code 1603.  Java is needed on this PC to be able to print shipping labels from FEDEX.com. I am trying to install using the administrator account. I have removed previous versions of Java. I have  removed the MS updated KB2918614.
The java uninstall tool doesn't run because Java is required to run the java uninstall tool.  I have run multiple Microsoft Fixit Tools.  This is the second PC I have had this error with in this office. Does anyone have any thing more to offer that
might assist me. I have "Google'd" this error for 2 weeks now.  Help would be greatly appreciated, Thank You!

A:Java Install error 1603 on Java 8u45

According to official site of Oracle, This is a known issue with Microsoft KB2918614The root causes of these errors are under investigation. If this error still persists after uninstalled this update.
You could try following zooeyhall?s suggestion to download and install a previous version of Java or try creating a new administrative user account and install Java with the new account.
Regarding to JAVA installation error, I?d suggest that we post at JAVA forum for further support. There you can get more effective suggestion by other experts who familiar with it. Your understanding is highly appreciated.

Java is driving me crazy. I have downloaded it 2x. Both times I checked to make sure it was on and everything looked okay. I'm am still getting the java not found or java not working message. The only thing I see out of place {I think} is in the internet options under advanced. The java has a 'needs restart' beside it. Any advice?
The other problem is when I try to play certain games windows won't allow it because the source is unknown. Any help there? Thanks.

A:Java and windows not allowing because they do not know the source

As far as I know, the needs restart refers to the browser, not the computer.

Have you close and reopened the browser after installing Java?

Unable to uninstall or update Java 7.0.70 to patched 7.15 version. Tried via add/remove programs, Revo Uniinstaller Free Version and Java RA. Used offline Java installer. First error:

I get the sneaky suspicion that Revo nuked some files on 7.7 although it is supposed to backup all files.Was using moderate mode.Revo stated it was backing up first but then no backup listed.  Even tried a system restore before the Revo run but didn't help. Searched the registry for 1314 but no result related to Java. Searched java.com and google but all dead ends. Ran tweaking.com repair including Chkdsk and SFC also. Getting same Browser Launch 1314 error.

I would like to know if anyone knows how I can delete the Java Plug-in from Java 1.4.2 in window XP. I am using IE 8.0. It is located in the control panel? I have exhausted all my brain power and means to do it. I have gone into the registry and deleted everything I could find in there concerning Java by typing Java and or 1.4.2 in the search function as the Java website says to do. I have done searches under the search functions in windows by various names such as Java, Sun, Oracle and every conceivable way I can think but I cannot find the java Plug-in. Maybe Java disguised the name of it to keep it from being deleted. I have checked in C:\windows\system32 and it is not there either. I could not uninstall Java 1.4.2 from the add/remove so I had to do it from the registry. Last fall I had to do a restore on my computer to factory default. After restoring it back to it original condition, I reinstalled all my updates from Misrosoft so I am using SP3. I read on another blog where some one else had done the same as I hd done but there was not any answers for a solution. I am afraid of trying to install another Java on my computer since the Java Plug-in, from the old Java is still in the control panel. By the way, I have my computer setup to look in all hidden files. Thanks.

Hello team and members from TechSupport!

I have a problem with my Java Control Panel since i reinstalled my windows 7 64bit system. I have installed the Java SE Development Kit 7 Update 2 for 64 bit with the Runtime Environment (also 7 Update 2 f?r 64-bit) and JavaFX 2.0.2 SDK (64-bit).

I always used Mozilla Firefox, but now wanted to change to Opera (Version 11.61 Build 1250 (Win32)) - Since my Java wasn't working on Opera (tested it on the Java "Verify" Page) I searched the internet for similar problems, but in most of the answers I had to go to the Java Control Panel, which I found out also doesn't work on my computer. When I want to open it (Java Control Panel) in programms there only comes this error message:

"Java(TM) Control Panel
C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\javaw.exe
-Xbootclasspath/a:"C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\..\lin\deploy.jar"
-Duser.home="C:\Users\<myname>" com.sun.deploy.panel.ControlPanel"

In my "Java" Directory I have two subfolders jdk1.7.0_02 and jre7, but can't find any deploy.jar ...

Also tried to deinstall the jdk and replace it with another, and I even tried to deinstall it to install just the JRE, just to find out if this works, but nothing. Don't know what to do now, but I hope that someone of you can help me.

I hope my english is understandable, my English got a bit rusty. ;)

Thanks in advance!

Okay so here is the whole story, its a bit long so please bare with me.

I was trying to fix my computer. I has windows vista home premium 64 bit. I got a virus, it was the "internet security" a type of virus that pretends to be an Anti-virus. I took it to office max to get rid of it and they could have but the program needed Java script to work with IE. So we did research and killed the virus thinking that would let IE use Java. I was able to stop it by using command prompt in safe mode by typing "taskkill /f /im isecurity.exe" When i did that it stopped the virus.

I was then able to delete the virus, but nothing would work. Internet wouldnt work and i got an error saying "The dependancy service or group failed to start" so i researched that on a friends computer and it said several things that woould fix it. None worked, so i went to "computer management-services" And im guessing killing the virus disabled all the "services" After hours of turning most to "automatic" I finally got internet back on. Then i was able to access everything again so went back to officemax and the same error showed up. Java script i guess had not been active. then i looked at my control panel and java isnt even there.

My question it, how do i get java to run or at least be on my computer. I installed the latest version and it still says that. then i tried to uninstall and reinstall but it told me that i already had it installed.

Which is not to be found under the program folders or uninstall programs.

A:Java Control Panel - Windows 7

If Java is not in the "Programs And Features" list and is not in the "Control Panel" list, it's not installed in your computer.

The most current version for Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit is Java 8 Update 5.

Hello, These are the results of my Windows Live One Care Safety Scan. I've scanned my computer with multiple anti-malware and anti-virus programs and One Care is the only one that detects these viruses. So far I have not had any problems that are visible due to the infection except for an occassional alert that says that Microsoft wants to run an add-on and connect to my computer remotely. It's the yellow bar that drops down from the top of the screen. I never click on it to run. I read somewhere that this is related to the virus.Exploit:Java/CVE-2008-5353.CLocation: C:\documents and settings\user\application data\sun\java\deployment\cache\6.0\18\6eb74992-63fbfb59 myf/y/appletx.classTrojan:Java/Selace.KLocation: C:\documents and settings\user\application data\sun\java\deployment\cache\6.0\18\6eb74992-63fbfb59 myf/y/loaderx.classTrojan:Java/Selace.LLocation: C:\documents and settings\user\application data\sun\java\deployment\cache\6.0\18\6eb74992-63fbfb59 myf/y/trewsdf.classDDS (Ver_09-12-01.01) - NTFSx86 Run by User at 5:06:07.58 on Wed 02/03/2010Internet Explorer: 8.0.6001.18702Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.3.1252.1.1033.18.1015.521 [GMT -5:00]============== Running Processes ===============C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost -k DcomLaunchsvchost.exeC:&#...

After reading about the Java problems, I tried the disable javascript in Firefox 18, updated to 7 Release 11, checked around and found Java 1.6XXX and Java 6 XX stuff. I couldn't uninstall them so I deleted the folders and uninstalled JRE 7 R11 and reinstalled it.
First I should have mentioned that I require javascript on numerous sites. I am running NoScript and only allow on regularly needed sites and temporarily on sites I may visit. I don't know how effective this is.
In the Control Panel, the Java icon shows an empty folder an says it has no association. Is there a way to get it back? Also I've found that in Java/bin/javacpl.exe is the control application for JRE and set it according to another threads suggestion of High Security and not storing any temp files on my computer.
Is it safe? Thanks for any assistance and opinions on these problems.

A:Lost Java association in Control Panel

Java and JavaScript are two separate things. Java is a programming language that has to be downloaded and installed. JavaScript is a browser based scripting language that is automatically provided by probably every browser out there. JavaScript is not experiencing any vulnerabilities and doesn't need to be disabled. Java is getting all the attention and should be uninstalled. This article gives a pretty good summation of the differences and what is being recommended.

Should I disable Java, and if so, how?

If you're having difficulties removing all traces of Java you could try a free uninstall utility called JavaRa. There are several "download" buttons on the JavaRa homepage so make sure you select the right one (screenshot provided.)

Hopefully JavaRa will remove the control panel icon. If it doesn't, you could try reinstalling the latest version of Java and see if the control panel icon is functional again. Your choice if you want to keep Java installed or not. I think most security experts are recommending that it not be installed.

I only use my computer to play games that require Java. I had java 7.4 but its not compatible on pogo games. Uninstalled it, and installed java 6.32 as recommended. The java icon is not showing in my control panel at all....but is in my add/remove programs. I know java is not working...pogo tech help tried to view my screen and were unable because java wasnt found. I tried to download it through firefox, google chrome, and IE. I have removed and reinstalled several times, and have restarted my computer as well. Same result every time.....no java in control panel, but is in remove programs.

Any suggestions would be great, as I am going nuts trying to figure out what to do!

I took a Java version 14 update the other night, it is working fine, passing all the Pink and Dancing Duke tests. When I clicked on the java icon in the control panel today and got:

"java control panel system cannot find the registry key specified".

"Hkey_Local_Machine\software\javasoft\java run time enviroment\1.60_13"
Went to the registry and the version 14 key it is there.

Went to WINDOWS\system32\ Javacpl.cpl it still shows version 13 there, Java.exe Javaaw.exe and Javaaws.exe are all version 14

Under Program Files: java\jre6\bin javacpl.cpl control panel extension properties it is version 14

I need the java icon in the control panel to look in the registry for version 14 instead of 13 from the control panel.

I also uininstalled 14 and reloaded it. DL JavaRa to remove all older versions.

To rule out a registry problem I was going to uninstall 14 and reinstall 13, then see what happens, but thought I would pose this problem here first

What do I need to change for the Java icon in the cpl to look for the right registry key?

Clicking the folder returns a message that Java is not installed. However, java runs fine. I cannot access the Java console.

A:Java folder empty in control panel

As far as I am aware, Java doesn't come in browser specific versions but Adobe Flash Player does. JavaScript (often confused with Java) also has different versions but it is not a separately installable program but is included in your browser software.

If you go here with each browser you have installed, you can get confirmation of your Java version and find out if it is enabled and working in each browser; http://www.javatester.org/ As a bonus you can also check if JavaScript is working!

Ok i first noticed this while running azureus and thought that was the problem. I then discovered it is when the new javaw.exe for java apps starts running.

Its kinda hard to describe it changes the way my screen looks. Like not the resolution but color changes a tad it seems like as does how sharp the image of my screen looks.

I have winxp nvidia gfx card.
Naturally i figured that somehow a profile for the app got setup with different settings in the nvidia desktop mngr but it hasnt and when viewing the visual settings they are exactly the same (on paper) as when javaw.exe isnt running. But it still looks different

Im pretty computer savy and I have never seen this happen before. I am clueless as to what is going on, any ideas would be great.

A:Weird java stuff

how many megs does the javaw exe take up?
I know, it's not that important. When you kill it does the screen go back to normal?

like you said, something else is using the Javaw as a JRE, might you know what in the startup could be doing that? msconfig and look through the startup stuff. I'm interested to learn what you find out.

I'[m having problems with Java. Java applets are not running. Also I can't open the Java Control Panel to see if the programs are installed properly. I have Windows 7 installed on a computer with a 64-bit processer, I have both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Java i6, Update 17 installed. When I try to run an applet at my online banking site Java does not seem to be recognized because the program keeps telling me I need to install Java for the applet to run. I tried uninstalling and re-installing Java. I was able to uninstall the 64 bit version, but not the 32 bit version.

I get a Windows Installer message saying " The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unvailable.

I do NOT want Java to automatically check for updates. I will do so manually. But I have a problem turning off this automatic update. My laptop has two accounts: an admin account and a user account with no administrator privileges. If I run the Java Control Panel in the admin account, on the Update tab I can uncheck the "Check for Updates Automatically" box. However in the user account, this check box is grayed out. How can I disable automatic update for the user account? Registry change? Something else?
Thank you.

A:Java Control Panel - Cannot disable automatic update

Do you have UAC disabled? If a standard user wants to do something that affects the system or other users, they will get a UAC prompt to provide the administrator's password before being allowed to do so. If UAC is not turned on, then the standard user will not be allowed to do so.

I tried to delete Java 1.4.2 from the add/remove in control panel on my windows XP with IE 8.0. It did not work. I finally deleted it from the registry and it is now gone from the add/remove.

My Zone Alarm program has picked up two viruses in the space of about a week, Exploit.Java.CVE-2009-3867d six days ago and Trojan-Downloader.Java.Agent.cf today. * After the first, I updated and ran Malware-Bytes and online ESET virus scan. Computer was apparently clean. Zone Alarm was set to do a full scan only every month (! and I'm sure I set it to scan daily.) There are no scan logs for either the ZA antivirus or firewall.* After the downloader trojan appeared, I updated and ran Malware-Bytes, and again it showed no infection.

An Avast full scan detected a Trojan virus and ran a bootup scan. The bootup scan found five Java:Malware-gen [Trj] and one Jave:Agent-AXI [Expl] located in the Java temp files folder. I quarantined/removed.
Upon doing some research on this site, I ran rKill and then rescanned my computer with Avast and Malwarebytes. Avast looked virus free but said software update status was critical for Java, WinRAR, and a few others. I updated through Java's site but for some reason, it keeps saying the status is critical and recommends both Java and WinRAR. I should mention that as I updated software, I noticed Adware on my Firefox browser - MixiDJ - which I removed through "Uninstal a program". Also found and removed DefaultTab Search Results, LLC and getsav.in Adpeak, Inc. in "Uninstal a program". Malwarebytes found a Trojan.Fake.Alert virus which I quarantined/removed.
Not much slowing or suspicious behavior, but a symptom is a weird psychedelic smearing of letters in text heavy websites. It's crazy.
I ran ESET once and it looked clean after this. But my god, it looks like a can of freaking worms!! I'd appreciate a review of my computer's status and a recommendation. I've never seen anything this severe so I'd also like to know if I should be concerned about privacy/scammers.
