Applications running java locks up.

Q: Applications running java locks up.


Would it be a RAM or CPU issue causing an application lockup? When I run two online applications, one of them locks up. One uses 348 meg of memory [java Platform SE Binary] and the other uses 419 meg of memory [java].

The pc has 4gb of ram and 3 GHz cpu. Please advise.


Preferred Solution: Applications running java locks up.

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: Applications running java locks up.

A question about missing information, which version of JAVA are you running? You can go to java.com: Java + You and check if you have the latest. Also, what are the applications? Maybe someone else had the same problem.

When I go to a page that has a chatroom, and certain other java-based web applications all I get is a little red "x".

I use IE 6.0, latest updates, and win xp home O/S. Under "tools", "options" there is no option to enable any sort of java console. Do I need to download some sort of plug in?

I cannot even get to the chat room on this site - it says I need a java-enabled browser but why isn't mine enabled?

Last 2 days Thursday and Friday, I have been having problems with TSG.
Every time I get on, my computer locks up and I have to hit the reset switch.
Today (Friday) it locked up, and when I reset the computer & things began to reload it stopped and said there was a "CMOS Checksum" error, and the date had reset to Jan. 1 1998 in the CMOS settings.
I reset the clock, restarted the comp, and while loading, Windows put a box onscreen to effect it was rebuilding a driver database (but not which one).
Is this caused by a Virus or perhaps something in one of the Java0type ads that IE5.5 can't handle correctly.
The problem first showed up when the ad re "Catch the Bouncing Ball!" showed up.
Time its taken me to type this in is longest time I've been able to use TSG since Wednesday nite.....

I'm having a bit of trouble using Java anywhere other than in a web browser. Java works fine in Firefox, I use it often, but it's been a while since I've run a standalone Java applet.

The problem is this: opening any standalone applet, even ones that worked before, simply produce a "Windows XP Critical Stop" error sound with no visual activity whatsoever. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Java many times, but it doesn't seem to change anything.

The applets work fine on an older computer with the latest Java, the same version as on the one with the problem, so it could be one of those well hidden configuration files or outdated .dll's. If you could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

Hello all. I have the latest version of java on a brand new fresh install of Windows Seven with all the available windows updates installed. I use several java based programs for work (From Nortel & Cisco) but they do not work properly. When I click to open any of these applications, they hang for a minute or two and eventually open, and then when they do open, they are completley sluggish and don't respond well. On my XP machine, these apps run instantly.

Is there anything else I can try??

A:Anyone having problems with Java applications?

Hi there

make sure the JRE is the same level that your work requirements are - sometimes having the latest jre and sdk completely hozes up a system if you need to connect to corporate apps with several releases earlier.

Another get around is to run a small XP as a Virtual machine or try "XP Mode".

Until some of the corporate apps are on W7 older java apps could present a problem.

I connect to SAP via a "SAPGUI" which still needs an almost pre-historic level of the JRE 1.4.2 !!. Any later version and the whole app just randomly crashes.

When i start a Java application (not an applet) like through the .jar file, it does run. Like in the Task manager a new process called java.exe and javaw.exe appears, but then nothing happens.

here is my problem:

I used to have a Sony Vaio laptop but it started not responding and freezing all the time...I ran a virus scan but everything came back clean. I tried to restore it to previous configurations or to restore it to factory settings and reinstall everything, but it wouldn't let me do it. The computer was old, so I thought it was just going out on me and bought a new laptop (HP).
I used a data cable so that the new laptop had the same data and configuration of the old one and everything seemed to work fine until yesterday, when the new laptop started having the same problems as the old one.
when I use firefox, it takes forever to load a page and the application is often not responding. I tried to use explorer instead, but with the same results.
Also when I try to use other applications, they freeze and start not responding as well.

I ran a virus scan with Avira antivirus (the free one) and it showed I had java/ddr.agent and 3 hidden objects.
It quarantined java/ddr.agent, but it didn't do anything with the hidden objects (I don't even know what they are).

Since it quarantined that .agent, it seemed to work better, until I used firefox again and everything (every application I open) started freezing and taking forever to open.

I tried restoring it to a previous configuration, but it's telling me that there isn't a restore point set, even if I remember setting one previously.

I read online that a lot of people had this problem wi... Read more

My desktop is Win7 64bit OS, Service Pack 1. I have dual monitors, one is hooked up via USB>VGA/DVI/HDMI adapter.

My problem is with opening Java applications, they always crash. I'm running Java 1.8.0, 32bit JRE, old versions are uninstalled, cache is cleared, etc. Same problem with other java versions, please believe me I tried them all. The only thing I haven't tied it uninstalling Java JRE and intalling JDK... but I really think its down to the computer, not Java. If the OS is 64bit does java have to be 64 as well?

I downloaded the game Minecraft because it uses Java and also produces a log before running. I will paste the relevant portion of the log below before the crash. After looking for solutions on the web, atioglxx.dll+0xb2b2 (see log) might have something to do with it. I tried to search for atioglxx.dll in Windows>System32 and found four hits. Right click on any one, properties>security and in the group/username field I have 'Everyone' and 'SYSTEM'. The permissions for 'Everyone' is 'read/execute' and 'read' while permissions for 'SYSTEM' are all checked, full control. I am unable to change permissions. Not sure if that has anything to do with it?

I have been looking at other sources on the web and possibility is graphics card is causing the problem. My graphics card is ATI Radeon HD 4550. Unfortunietly I have been unable to find its drivers online to update.

Thank you and any help would be appreciated.

Hello! I've got an issue with my forex platform which is written in java - whenever I open more than 2 chart windows their contents become corrupt in the following ways: the entire chart turns black and clickable elements come back into view when i move the mouse cursor over them (this doesn't happen all the time), the chart "flashes" the data from another chart every second or so, sometimes it displays the wrong data for a longer time before reverting to the correct contents.

I suspect it to be a problem with java because both platforms I use for trading forex are corrupted in the exact same way and the only thing they have in common is that they are java based. The problem started a few days ago when I have replaced my ancient x1900xt with a HD 5770 and plugged in my old 17" HP v72 crt for use as a secondary monitor (if it matters, it's connected via a vga to dvi converter).

I've tried putting my old x1900xt back in to see if it's caused by the graphics card but that didn't help. I've tried clearing java cache, removing java and rolling back to an older update (I'm using 6u23 now) but that didn't help. I've tried reinstalling the graphics card drivers and that didn't work either.

The one time I got the charts to work again was when I completely removed java, ran a registry cleaner, rebooted and installed java again while the secondary screen was disabled - it worked for a while, then I've extend... Read more

A:Visual corruption in java applications.

I've found out what the problem is by accident - it turns out that there is some sort of incompatibility between antialiasing and the java applications I am having problems with. I'm not sure if the problem applies to all graphics cards, only ATI cards or only my model, but the solution is to set the antialiasing setting in Catalyst Control Center to "use application settings".

I'm having some issues with the proper display of some Java based applications. I use my Yoga 910 at the Windows recommended resolution of 3840 x 2160 and have it also set to scale the display of items to 300% which works quite well for most applications.  However, for some reason some Java based applications simply do not scale the text making it practically impossible to use them without having to change the resolution and downgrade from 4K display. I've tried the same application on a different machine also with a 4K display, a Dell XPS 13 and it scales as expected, so it isn't likely the application. I suspect that it is somehow tied to my display adapter, but can't find a way troubleshoot this. Has anyone else run across this issue?

Windows 7 version: Ultimate x64 OEM (untouched leak back from July 22, 2009) with SERVICE PACK 1 INSTALLED

Computer is about 1 and 3/4 years old.

Latest Windows installation was Jan 10, 2011 but BSOD's started after that.

So basically I reformatted my PC, installed all the programs I needed etc and 2 days ago I finally got minecraft and I made a world where next to the spawn is a bunch of gold (literally 500 stacks of 64blocks) and then when MP to show my friend.

I then went to record it with fraps because my friend was lagging and disconnecting. I put the files into Sony vegas 10 pro (64bit) and started rendering and got a BSOD half way through. Rebooted, tried again, same thing.

I have had some other BSODs, rendering another video in vegas (although i was rendering 3 videos but only 1 had the problem), randomly on youtube and when loading speedtest.net, which was my latest BSOD (30min before post).

I have a feeling that the reason is some sort of problem with java, as my recent crash was from me loading speedtest.net and minecraft uses Java.

System Specs:
Core i7 920 @ 4.0GHz
3x2GB Kingston DDR3 1333
Gigabyte EX58-UD4P
Gainward GTX 275
Seasonic PSR650+

About 3 months ago my computer just started randomly locking when I was running 3d games. I wasn't having any problem in the world running 2d games so I was thinking maybe the GPU or video card memory was overheating. So I pulled a fan and heatsink off an old 386 processor I had and fixed it to the GPU and still the same problem.

Since then I've tried using a TNT2 and swapped out or replaced all hardware except for the motherboard and processor. Even tried changing the power supply. All drivers are up to date. I've tried 3 different BIOS revisions. I've tried using at least 5 versions of the Nvidia detonator drivers (I keep them archived in case of problems like this.) It locks up if there's sound being used or sound completely off and if the sound card isn't even in the computer. I'm running DX8.1 and nothing changed, software or hardware, when the problem occurred.

Video card is not overclocked. AGP aperture set in BIOS to 64 meg. I've defragged the HDD recently. Happens with any 3d game no matter how low the settings for the game are set.

Common games being played: CounterStrike, Monkey Island 3, WC3, Ultima Online (3d Client) Q3

System Specs:

Athlon 1.4Ghz
768 meg RAM
GeForce 2 GTS 32meg / TNT2 32meg (TNT2 for testing if it was the vid card)
34.6 Maxtor HDD
Asus A7V133 (not using the onboard RAID at the moment)

Hey y'all
I have a problem with my PC. Sometimes when I leave my computer on and leave it idle for a while and then come back to it the whole thing will be locked up. I can move the mouse around but as soon as I click something it will lock up and the time will be locked to the time when it had locked up. The whole thing basically locks up causing the green vista loading mouse circle to replace the pointer. The only way to shut it off is to hold down the power button for about 5seconds. Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? I'm boggled by this.

Specs are as follows:

I've got a problem with my Win XP system. A few days ago after a program conflict and system crash I had to reinstall my DSL utility program/drivers/modem etc...

The installation went well except that something seems to be running now in the background. I can log onto the Web, communicate and run all programs, but there is a regular tone annunciating (sounds like when a USB device connects) a bonging sound which occurs regularly.

Because I thought that there was some sort of conflict I clicked on "Add Hardware Wizard" and got the following message.

"Cannot run two device installations.
You can install only one device at a time, another device installation is underway, when it is finished you can try the Wizard again."

This seems to be the problem....the system apparently is hung up trying to install a device and never can complete that task.

Is there some simple way to stop this process? and in turn turn off the constant tone.

Thank you

Fred Gendler

A:Add Hardware Wizard locks up running in Win XP

Over the last few weeks, my PC has been having fits running slow, locking up, 1 BSOD (KERNEL.STACK_INPAGE_ERROR), stuttering sound, windows getting locked, mouse pausing and freezing, etc. It frequently requires hard boots as it won't respond to Ctrl-Alt-Delete. This happens in safe mode as well.

The CPU usage is often stuck at 100%, even with no applications running. I can't see any pattern to it. It can run fine for a few hours, then suddenly get stutter and lock up.

The only thing has changed recently is that a week or two before this started happening, the CMOS battery was giving error messages on reboots, so I replaced it. I have not been able to see anything wrong in the BIOS settings. Device Manager gives no errors.

I haven't seen any signs of malware, but just in case, I have attached the normal logs. I run ZoneAlarm Free and Microsoft Security Essentials. Virus scans have been negative. I also ran Lavasoft Ad-Aware, but it found nothing other than harmless cookies.

I have cleaned/vacuumed out the system (which I do regularly anyway). I removed and reseated all the cards and memory. I checked that all the fans were working.

I have run CleanUp! (also a normal thing on my routine maintenance). The disk is not fragmented. I removed what programs and autoruns I was sure about.

I ran Chkdsk and it fixed some file ... Read more

A:What Applications Are Running ?

Hello oldLearner57,Welcome to Bleeping Computer. I'm new here too. I don't know much about computers, but hopefully this information will help you out a bit. Click here to download Process Explorer. It will show you all the processes that are running, it will also show you information about which DLLs and handles processes have opened or loaded, how much memory the processes are using, and the amount of CPU usage each process is taking up. It's like Task Manager, but it gives you much more information.Also Click Here to find a list of freeware programs that will help you, along with Free AV software to help you find out if there are any viruses on your computer, if you already don't have an anti virus program. You should also consider downloading another Firewall from that list because the Windows Firewall only provides you with so much security. read thisTake Care!

My computer, a HP Pavilionzv6000 laptop with Win XP, runs slower that it used to. I don't know how many programs are running that don't need to be running. I may have a virus because every time the AVG program runs, it finds a virus. Sometimes it can't fix the problem so I put it in the vault. I have the Zone Alarm firewall set on High. Also, often the computer just locks up and ai have to disconnect the power cord, and remove the battery to reboot it when no keystroke functions.

Please help!

My computer is a lenovo ideapad u310, bought a little over a year ago - the warranty is expired - and running Windows 7 Home Premium
About 5 days ago, I tried to open an excel file (microsoft office 2010) and received an error message saying there wasn't enough memory. 
I then tried to open a word document - it just fades and says that it's stopped working, then says it can't open but doesn't send a report and nothing is listed in the event viewer!
Powerpoint also doesn't open.
Adobe Reader is not working properly - it will open documents only in unprotected mode but won't let me edit the documents.
My youcam is not working at all - when I click on it, the mouse rotates for a few seconds, then just turns back to an arrow.
Shockwave flash in the chrome browser doesn't work.
When I restart the machine I get several error messages - verifyhost.exe, lenovoreg.exe and sacpl.exe unable to start correctly.
There are MANY bootshieldsvc errors in the event viewer upon each startup.
I have spent literally hours trying to figure out what the problem is and have come up empty!
Does this sound like a virus or more of a hardware issue?
Thanks for any help anyone can provide!!  By the way, I don't have a lot of computer knowledge so please spell out any specific steps I need to take to give you more information!

A:Several issues running applications

This problem began occuring recently, and as such I am assuming it has to do with either windows updates, or an alternately running program or process.

Windows XP home has been reseting while im using old applications, windowed dos, or win32 applications, unexpectedly. I set windows to not reset on critical errors so now it just hangs. No mouse movement, unresponsive to ctrl+alt+del or alt+tab. The event viewer displays no errors during this time period, and i have been getting no "windows was improperly shut down" errors on startup.

This has occasionaly occured in the past whilst running xp applications, but only very rarely, and as such may have been an unrelated error.

Note that this does not occur during all old applications, also that I attempted to run under a restricted profile unsuccessfuly to see if the problem would occur with none of my personal background apps running, apperantly windows will not allow any of the applications to run without admin privelieges.

When these specific applications are run on my other computers they have no problems.

Also worth noting that i have recently had a huge virus infection, at the same time as an external hd failure, though the only way i can see this affecting this issue is that i am running different antivirus software now (avg instead of windows defender).

Ill be running disk cleanup and defrag overnight to see if that helps at all, and maybe some registry cleaners. I hope someone can help, i dont ... Read more

A:XP Freezes while running old applications

I wonder if this HardDrive has also got an issue (physically, bad spots etc)
You could run a Drive Diagnostics on it to confirm (making sure to backup first)

Or due to previously having many Viruses removed, the Windows system files have now been corrupted (somewhere!)
You could run sfc /scannow to repair that issue (But I'd suggest uninstalling AVG first).

Actually if this is the free version of AVG, please try a Free Antivirus like Avast or Avira

One last option, would be to run Memtest on your Ram

That just about covers it

I got some problems with some applcations.

For instance, i have a uTorrent problem. I install the application, works fine for 10 minutes, then when i try to open utorrent it won't open. No error message, no nothing, just won't OPEN dosen't matter how many times i double click the .exe. I opened task manager and the process it's gone so i really don't know what could be the problem. On the officla forum of utorrent they say it's a windows 7 problem but for some people it works. I even tried run as administrator, run compatibility, i even give myself OWNER on utorrent and won't work. And what is strange is that i can't uninstall the program from control panel only if i remove it completlty from registry. (i even tried a CLEAN uninstall then CLEAN INSTALL and the same strange problem).

Ok you would say it's a utorrent problem but it's not. I installed another application, a uninstaller to remove utorrent completly but not even the uninstaller it's RUNNING. i mean it's the same problem, the uninstaller tool worked fine 5-10 mins then when i try to open it...it won't open.

And another strange problem with STEAM. Kinda same, every time i open STEAM it is UPDATING STEAM PLATFORM and very slowly..1% / minute.

This reply represents only my personal opinion, and I take full responsibility of what I say. As a quite new member my self, I have no authority to speak on behalf of anybody else, least the forum owners and admins.

Please use other forums to discuss this type of problems.
