Vista Backup Catastrophic error 0x8000FFFF, Java not registering in Control Panel programs and Java instillation error 25099.

Q: Vista Backup Catastrophic error 0x8000FFFF, Java not registering in Control Panel programs and Java instillation error 25099.

Hi,

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?

Thanks,

John

Preferred Solution: Vista Backup Catastrophic error 0x8000FFFF, Java not registering in Control Panel programs and Java instillation error 25099.

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.)

Hi!
I have to admit to being completely at a loss with my new laptop. A friend set it up for me before leaving me to figure out the rest. Currently, I am trying to download java which I discovered that I don't have when my little brother came over and immediately tried to play online games.

I downloaded the java installer from http://www.java.com/en/download/windows_manual.jsp?locale=en&host=www.java.com:
and, following their instructions, downloaded the offline installer, closed my firefox and tried to open the program.
The error I get is like this:

Java(TM) has stopped working
A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

My only option is to close the program, which I do. It doesn't give me any more information than that. I tried downloading the online installer and that did the same thing. I've checked my firewall but it doesn't appear to be blocking anything.

Really I'm just not sure what this means or what I should do about it...

Can anyone help me?

Thanks!

Did you do all your updates on the OS? Go into control panel - add/remove and remove the java program you installed. Make sure you do all your updates in Microsoft and go back and try again. Jazz

hiya try this,
Make sure that the "Volume Shadow Copy" service is enabled and running:

Right click on Computer in the start menu and choose Manage.

In the left pane, expand Services and Applications. Click on Services.

Scroll down to find "Volume Shadow Copy". It should have a status of Started and a startup type of Automatic. If not, you need to enable it:

Right click on the service "Volume Shadow Copy" and click Properties. Change statup type to Started and then click Apply. After clicking Apply, click Start. Now click OK and try backing up again.
or try this
one of the first things I did was to create a test user with a profile on a non-default location. I wanted to explore the possibility to store a user's complete profile and documents on another physical disk. After doing some testing, I disabled that user but didn't delete it.

I deleted the user as well as the related profile registry entry from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList after backing it up, and rebooted. After that I was able to make a successful backup.

So, to all of you who still experience the 0x8000FFFF backup error, have a look to see if there are any profile entries in the registry that are corrupt (point to non-existing locations) - and make sure to back up any entries before you delete them.

A:Solved: Java Error 25099!help needed!

Greetings!

I don't know everything, or much at all when it comes to some things, but have you checked the %ProgramFiles%\Java\jre6\ and %APPDATA%\Sun\Java\jre1.6.0_10\ directories to make sure they're empty? The windows/installer cleaner should have gotten rid of any file clutter, but i heard there are times when it still can be left behind even after running a drive cleaner. It would be a good idea to delve a level deeper and check the Program Files. let me know if this helps and if not I hope a more knowledgeable person takes it from there

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.

Doing a complete PC backup works fine, but the "Back Up Files" option always fails with the following error: Catastrophic failure 0x8000FFFFThis happens after some 10-15 seconds inhto the shadow copy.I've been searching for a solution in this forum and all kinds of places I can think of, only finding others who have the same problem, but no solution.

If the problem is an inaccessible path or file, why not tell the user about it, while still backing up everything that is accessible?Mike

That message usually means the hard drive partition is "dirty" (ie contains errors).
Run the error checker to detect and repair errors to the file system.

Right-click the hard drive icon & select "Properties".
Click the "Tools" tab.
Click "Check Now".
Tick both options, then click Start.
If the drive is the system drive (ie has Windows installed on it), you'll need to click "Schedule disk check".
Now restart Windows & the disk check will run before Windows loads.

Have you tried removing it from add/remove programs and re-downloading and installing the newest?

Seems to be an old bug that did the same, thought it would be fixed by now. http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6641731 Maybe they didn't bother since Vista is outdated.

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.

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.

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

-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. ;)

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?

Hello,
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.

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 have Java 1.7 for both IE & non IE browsers installed and enabled. However, in control panel Java is represented by an empty folder. Clicking the folder returns a message that Java is not installed. However, java runs fine. I cannot access the Java console. I have uninstalled Java and reinstalled it but that does not resolve the issue. Is there a missing file or registry key? Thank you.

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!

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.

Ive had an icon for Java in my control panel for as long as I remember, and its supposed to be the one for the java control panel. The only issue is, the icon is a folder instead of a the java logo, and whenever I open it, I get this error (in screenshot). I decided to uninstall Java and I used JavaRa to clear all the java leftovers, however it is still there after a restart. How can I remove it? I want to remove it before i reinstall Java so that I get the proper icon in control panel. thanks!

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.

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. Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package "jre1.6.0_17c-l.msi" The path it tries to looki in is C:\Users\Username\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\jre1.6.0_17c-l.msi Its seems as if I'm missing the installation package file for the 32 bit Java program. Seems I'm missing the control panel files as well. Help!

When i experienced the follow error.



I deleted the file named "Program" in the C: Drive to fix it. (This also fixed java not working or even launching with a web browser application)

A:Java Crashes browsers and its control panel wont open

See if deleting temp files in all browsers clears the Java cache ...

Download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.






Quote:
TFC (Temp File Cleaner) will clear out all temp folders for all user accounts (temp, IE temp, java, FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari), including Administrator, All Users, LocalService, NetworkService, and any other accounts in the user folder. It also cleans out the %systemroot%\temp folder and checks for .tmp files in the %systemdrive% root folder, %systemroot%, and the system32 folder (both 32bit and 64bit on 64bit OSs). It shows the amount removed for each location found (in bytes) and the total removed (in MB). Before running, it will stop Explorer and all other running apps. When finished, if a reboot is required the user must reboot to finish clearing any in-use temp files.

Updated Java to v7 Update 11, websites that use java are coming up with a security warning asking if I want to run this application? It says:

and

This never happened before, is there anyway to disable this?

I assume that this security check was installed by Java 7 Update 11 because it did not start until I installed v7.11.

I checked this PC before I updated and no security question, after I updated I get the security question.
I updated my PC at work first and that is when I noticed this had started, came home and tested this one before updating so it must be v7.11 that is installing this test or whatever you want to call it.

Hi Guys,

This one has been bugging me for the past few updates for Java Version 8 - the "Update" tab is missing for the Java Control Panel program.

This was (apparently) a bug in earlier version, but is supposedly fixed.

I'm running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and have had this issue with at least the last three updates to the Java JRE Version 8 64-bit.

I've tried uninstalling, cleaning the registry and making sure any leftover Java-related files are gone, but once I reinstall Java, the problem is still there.

Can anyone else confirm this issue?

Cheers,

Mike.
