Q: Java problems, XP Pro problems, SLOW everything problems...

Hi guys

This is my first post in this forum so hello!

Title was difficult to put succinctly so I will describe the problems I'm having.

I recently did a complete re-instal of XP Pro. I wiped all hard drives, installed a new one, physically cleaned inside of PC with air, resat all cards, upgraded to SP3 for first time, installed software slowly and carefully and installed Avira Antivirus, Agnitum Outpost Firewall (disabled Windows Firewall first) and also installed Spybot S&D.

So, I am having various problems that I've never had before:

1. Startup is quite slow - this could be to do with firewall and anti-virus loading up

2. If I have any USB external drives attached and on, the boot will hang

3. My system tray lacks several icons that should be there; volume control, anti-virus

4. Strange things with right-clicking causing system crash - e.g. I grabbed 3 photos off desktop, dropped them onto bin and right-clicked right away to empty bin - system hung and I had to hard crash out and restart PC

5. When I open my new internal second HD, it takes ages to display all the items (a lot of videos) slowly writing out all their dimensions down a list. If I try any right click actions whilst it's doing this, the system hangs

6. Browsers - I use Firefox, have the new v3 installed, I installed latest Java and Flash but have problems with some sites. One relies on Java for its online tutorial I need but all I get is a blank white screen with 'done' in the bottom left corner. I tried watching a video demo on Microsoft's site and it said to install Flash which I already had; the demo just wouldn't play and again sat there idle with 'done' in the corner. Facebook is soooo slow... and as of today, I can't share links, it takes ages, twirls around and around then says, 'done' but nothing has happened.

I searched the forums for similar, and read advice to remove Java and re-install and I got this bad looking message (screen shot included) Any microsft experts know what that might mean?

PS - I haver tried ALL these things with IE and get same problems. I also re-installed Firefox to no avail...

Something is definitely up!

Preferred Solution: Java problems, XP Pro problems, SLOW everything problems...

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.)

Sounds like you got virus or malware. Turn OFF System Restore. Download and install www.malwarebytes.org and run a Full scan. Remove all malware Reboot.

Hey I've been having major problems with my Laptop.
Every ten or so minutes when my McAfee 2010 security suite disables real-time scanning it'll re-enable itself causing a lot of alarming pop-up boxes which is slowing my computer. Not sure whats causing it but it seems like malware.
Next theres this process which starts at windows start-up (DivxUpdate.exe), I don't think this is actually a part of divx. I've read somewhere that it is a form of autorun malware, it consumes 99% of my cpu majorly slowing down my computer, I think I may have similar malware on here that are problematic.
Also my firefox frequently say that there's an unresponsive script which temporarily freezes my whole computer and when I finally manage to get to task manager I have to end the process which seems to be using a regular amount of cpu and memory.
I made a topic exactly 1 month ago but nobody answered so I thought I'd make a new one seeing as the problems are progressing and building up.

Thanks for any help I'm provided with.

thanks for taking a look at this I hope you can help.

About a week ago my comp was running fine and I had no problems. I was using Win XP Pro on my Advent 6414 PIII 1.1 GHz laptop and was using AOL to connject to the internet. I had Anti Virus guard working there too and thought things were ok....

I upgraded the AV Guard but halfway through the setup i had to turn the computer off.

When I started it up on Monday, there was a progress bar at the bottom of the screen consisting of really chunky white bars.

The XP screen hung there for ages and when it did finally load, the programs running were prone to freezing. Specific symptoms were the Display Properties panel locking up and then saying there was a WIN32.DLL error (Not Responding) and that it had to shut down. The desktop picture froze and each subsequent time i tried to start the computer it took longer and longer to start. The programs hung for longer and froze earlier and it got to the point where I lost everything. I had to reformat the entire hard drive and re-install XP.

Surely this would have cured the problems despite wiping out my extensive and dare I say excellent music collection..aaaarrghhhh!!
Alas it did not. i have re-installed XP only to find similar re-occurrences of the same problems...programs slow to load, Explorer locks up (the start menu is the main one) and now the pictures that I loaded for my desktop are being halved each time i start up.

I learned my lesson and now have Nor... Read more

A:XP Problems: Slow to load, DLL broken, freezes, modem problems the list goes on..

How much do you know about installing XP?
And, what options did you select during the process?

(No, it's not a simple, linear, process.)
First of all, if you wipe the drive you should do it properly. That is, you get a copy of the Disk Manager software from your hard drive's manufactuer and you use THAT to wipe the Hard Drive from a boot disk. Low-level format the drive, which means you write zeros to the entire drive including the boot sector. That gives you a truely blank drive.

Then when you do the XP install, windows thinks the drive is "Virgin" and does a complete partition and format. No information is retained.

If you wanted to be faste (but lazy) about it, you could just delet the partitions on the drive and then make new partitions, and then install Windows, but let's be sure we've done everytyhing we can to start with a blank slate, shall we?

But you're not done yet: You need to get the device drivers from your PC mfg's website. Otherwise, all the drivers that XP doesn't have aren't there, and your hardware is in "Default" mode (if at all).

NOTE: Before you start to do any of this, check with your OEM to see if they have any special "Non-DOS" partitions on your model of laptop. If they do, all this is for naught: You'll have to get them to put those partitions back on your machine before you begin re-installing.

Compaq did this a few years back to a number of their models, and it was a huge headache to ITs everywhere... Read more

This is my first post here, so I hope that I follow all of the rules. And thanks in advance for any help. My computer has been running slow for a while, and I think one of my kids might have gone to a website that allowed some malware in. My OS is Windows XP SP3. I have noticed a few things, 1. Had a problem with Adobe acrobat reader, it wouldn't update for some reason, and couldn't open PDF files for a while, after uninstalling and reinstalling several times, I think it is now working. Also noticed more recently when working in MS Word 03 every once in a while it won't let me save files. Now I am noticing that when I have Internet Explorer open for a while, IE tries to pop open a new window, to which the IP address is blocked by K9 web protection is the IP. After googling this IP address, I found a few posts leading me to think there might be a trojan kicking around on my pc. I have run MBAM and Hijackthis in an attempt to find the culprit, but MBAM comes up clean, and I can't find it on Hijackthis. Any help woould be appreciated.

I bought an eMachines laptop (I know off brand) but it was on Black Friday for $395. In addition, I bought an external hard drive. When I plugged the external hard drive into my laptop; the harddrive downloaded a backup software called Memeo. This backup software would pop up everytime I downloaded something or wanted to uninstall or open a file. So I eventually uninstalled the backup software (MEMEO) and my computer began to run EXTREMELY sluggish and slow. 1. I ran a Nortan scan believing that it would fix my computer situation.

Hi, about 2 days ago I turned on my pc and many weird things started happening...
first it took a lot of time for the explorer.exe to load, so the desktop or taskbar didn't appear until after maybe 10-15 minutes. Then, the taskbar looked really weird, it seemed like it had been cut horizontally, so you couldn't get to see the whole lower part of the taskbar (and it wasn't the screen size config... since I tried changing that and it didn't work). I thought it might be some kind of virus, so I opened Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and I got the following message:

Run-time error '372':

Failed to load control 'vbalGrid' from vbalsgrid6.ocx. Your version of vbalsgrid6.ocx may be outdated. Make sure you are using the version of the control that was provided with your application.

Then also I noticed I can't paste anything anywhere... or drag things, so I can't copy paste things or cut-paste things... then since yesterday I no longer have a taskbar... and I also can't use the search function (not even when I go into My PC and click on the search icon... a frame appears on the left, just as it should, but it just stays blue)

Hi This is my first time posting, and I have a lot of things causing problems with my computer, but to start off, here are my specs.

Windows 10 Pro
Intel Core i7-4770s CPU @ 3.10GHz
8 Gb Ram Corsaire Vengence 4x2
64 Bit
AMD Radeon HD 7700 GDDR5 1Gb (two of them w/ crossfire)
2 Tb 7200 Rpm Seagate HDD
z87-g45 Gaming Motherboard
Case: r5 Gaming Full size case
Power Supply: Corsair AX860
Fans: Rosewill Hyper Silence CPU fan, 2 stock front fans, 1 stock in back

So, to start off, I built this computer myself 2 years ago, and it has been running steadily without too many problems along the way, but earlier last year it began to have some much bigger problems.

Issue 1. Monitor Issues
I say this is a monitor issue, but i really doubt it has anything to do with the monitors them selves. What is happening every once in a while (about 3 times a week) the screens of my monitors will cut to black (it doesn't matter what I'm doing) and stay black for a few seconds before revealing the task bar at the bottom of the screen, and then the rest of my desktop slowly reveals itself. I've tried updating my video card drivers, but that hasn't helped.

Issue 2. Keyboard and Mouse Become unresponsive (System isn't frozen however)
Sometimes if I leave my pc idling in the lock screen, the keyboard will stop working, and when I come back, I can't log in. I can tell my computer is not frozen because the slideshow in the lock screen keeps moving and I can move my mouse (bu... Read more

Recently, I have a great deal of trouble accessing any chat rooms using Java. It only happened since I changed ISP's so it's likely connected to that - but, whatever room I try, I click on the Java button and 90% of the time, nothing happens at all. Occasionally I can access but the room 'freezes' Now and again, I get the following page displayed:

"You may be trying to connection through an HTTP proxy server. The VolanoChat applet cannot connect to the VolanoChat server through an HTTP proxy server because it doesn't communicate using HTTP. Try switching the connection to a SOCKS proxy server or try using a network address translating (NAT) router for your firewall, if either of those options are available for you. VolanoChat works fine through a firewall using SOCKS or NAT. Your network administrator may be able to help you change your settings to work with VolanoChat."

I don't understand that message but is there something about your server set-up that is compromising access? I run Vista and have downloaded the latest Java -I've even uninstalled Java completely, then re-installed - rebooting in between every move - and still no help.

Very frustrating - anyone help?

Starting yesterday, I have been having a problem with Java. Almost every Java program or applet I have tried to run has not worked. Everything from Minecraft to Java's own website is not working. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Java multiple times, yet it still doesn't work. The only think I have found that still works is Project Zomboid, which is already downloaded to my computer.

It appears that it is only Java stuff that involves the internet does not work. I have tried multiple browsers but nothing has worked. Thanks for any help.

Began having problems a month ago with some programs (e.g.,Pogo, Yahoo Market Tracker) using IE 8. I get the message "must have Java to run this program". I have uninstalled Java 7 and reinstalled several times with no help. For a while I could run on Firefox and Chrome, but now they all respond the same way. Any suggestions?

A:Java Problems

Since this is happening on all three browsers, the problem is not with Java but more likely the problem is in your security or firewall settings. That's what I would look at.

Hey all. I'm going nuts with Sun Java here. When the application is needed for a website, I'm told Java isn't on this machine, though I downloaded and installed it from Sun's site. When using Firefox browser, it says to install the missing plug-in. I try and do that and when install is finishing up, I'm told it already exists on my system. It then says to un-install it through Add/Remove Programs, then re-install it. I have two listings under Add/Remove Programs for Java, J2SE Runtime Enviroment 5.0 Update 2, and J2SE Runtime Enviroment 5.0 Update 4. When I try to remove either one of them, it only tries to do an install, then tells me it's already installed. When I went to test my Java on Sun's site, it couldn't find it in my PC. BTW, Adobe has been acting up lately too. When trying to access a PDF file on the net, I'm told Acrobat Reader doesn't exist in my PC, yet it's right there on the desktop. I'm able to open the program from there and it seems ok. I've uninstalled and re-installed Adobe several times over the past few weeks, but it keeps happening to me after using it just a couple of times. I scan disk and defrag almost daily on my Win 98 SE machine. 256 MB SDR RAM, 466 Celeron processor, 120 gig Maxtor Hard Drive. Nod32 Anti-virus finds nothing wrong. Same with Trojan Hunter 4 and AdAware SE Plus. Any help is appreciated.

Sorry, you cannot place your order with a credit card because either
Your browser cannot run Java OR...
You have Java switched off
Either go back a page and order using a different payment method, or enable Java or use a browser that supports Java. If you are running Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer, you just need to enable Java:
First check the type of browser that you have: click "Help" on the menu and then "About"

If you have Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 or higher on Windows 95 or NT 4.0, you can enable Java:
go to the View menu
select Options...

Okay button
add this site to your Favorites list
close Internet Explorer, and then open Internet Explorer again
return to this site (on the Favorites list)
go to the View menu
select Internet Options...
click the Security tab
select any of the standard security levels
press OK
press the Refresh button
If you do not have either of these, you can download either one of them for free.

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium , Service Pack 1, 64 bit
I have a problem with Java; this is preventing me from playing a game called Minecraft as well as other java related programs.

The problem i have is called "Java error 1723" the full error message is as follows:
Error 1723. There is a problem with this windows installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run.

This error message occurs whenever i try to install and or uninstall Java from my computer.

I have looked on the Java website and a variety of forums and they all say you must unistall Java and then install both windows installer and Java; however i cannot follow these steps as whenever I try to uninstall Java the error comes up.

Another step is to re-download windows installer but all the links provided say they don't coincide with my operating system.

I have tried these automated fix programs but they have done nothing to help the problem.

Please someone help me, this is driving me crazy as i cannot do alot without it.

My Java is acting up and is not letting me play any games or talk on irc chat. everytime i open something up it says "Several Java virtual machines running the same process may cause error." Usually it will let me if I try to download Java again, it will say that i have the current java. Then, every thing works until I shut my comp down. I am not sure of what to do and would apprieciate it if you could help me.

I recently have been having trouble with Java, I was playing games from shockwave or gamehouse and then all of a sudden the graphics went Kabloohey! They were like being pulled and stretched. So I tried everything, updated drivers, checked to make sure I had the righht service packs and all the current updates, updated flash player and shockwave player, updated direct x, unistalled direct x and re-installed direct x. I swear I've tried everything like 5 times. Then I was trying a game again and Java icon popped up on my screen so I went to see if there were updates. When I check to see if Java was running ok on my computer it looked all messed up and it gave 3 options to try to fix this. I tried them all and nothing worked. Could this be my problem with the games? Can this be fixed? I've include a screenshot of what the Java looks like.
I have a Compaq Presario 5410us with windows xp service pack 3. It has

Microsoft stopped providing Java support with version 3810. That was the last "secure" version. You may or may not be using Microsoft's Java. To find out, go to Start > Run, enter: cmd and at the prompt enter: jview

If you don't see Microsoft (R) Command-line Loader for Java Version 5.00.3810 you don't have Microsoft's Java even installed.

The only other option is Sun Java: is this what you installed?


If you have both, and SP1 or later, you can switch between them easily by going to the "set program access and defaults" > "Custom" option on your Start Menu > All Programs list.

I'm not very new to the Windows Vista XP 64-bit operating system, but I'm not very experienced either. It's still hard for me to find out problems with my computer, and when a week or two ago my computer started having random windows pop open, I couldn't figure out how to solve them. I was hoping if someone could help me out or has had this problem before:

A handful of times every day, a random Internet window pops up, saying that Internet Explorer could not display the webpage. My wireless internet is functional and connected, and my Internet browsing settings have not been altered. I ran a McAfee virus scan around the time this problem arose, but no viruses or damaged files were found. I'm also running IE 7, and as far as I know I have all the updates. The only clue I have is the URL:
<javascript:history.back();> I opened up my Java program, but I couldn't find any apparent problems... I can't find a specific link between each time this window pops up, either.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm running Xp Pro and I haven't been able to get java working on my computer. I have Microsofts jvm installed and i've tried Suns verions 1.4.2_01-05 and java still won't work properly. What happens is this, webpages on the internet explore only seem to function correctly when using microsoft jvm.

However in order to code in java and run my own programs I use Suns java. When I try to run a java program, my whole screen goes black and then just the window that the java program is making is shown. But no buttons or anything are shown in that window. Its an empty window. In order to get my screen back i have to right click and click on refresh but that still doesn't make it so i can see my java program.

I've even tried uninstalling both and just using one at a time but it still won't work. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine and Sun Microsystem's Java runtime are both products of Sun Microsystems. The JVM is licensed by Sun for use by Microsoft.

I wouldn't become too dependent on Java technology, as Microsoft's license extension under Sun Microsystems is announced to expire in 2007. I am uncertain as to what runtime Microsoft intends to replace it with (I suspect VB).

First, I would be absolutely sure that you are developing your programs in the same version of Java as your installed runtimes. Then, I would try adjusting display settings and seeing if that makes any difference.

If no positive results occur, you should contact Sun Microsystems for help and support. I am not sure exactly what kind of help you could gain from Microsoft or it's users, as Java is being phased out as we speak.

Good Luck!

try uninstalling JAVA and reinstalling it...

Hey, I haven't had Java in this computer for awhile, but I decided to download it again so I could use Limewire. I download the latest version and it says it is running correctly, but when I fire up Limewire, the window is all distorted and impossible to read. I reinstalled Limewire and even tried an older version, but still the same problem persists.

To see if this was a Java problem, I went to their site and clicked "Test Your Java Virtual Machine (JVM)." When it does test it, it reads:
"Congradulations. The latest version of the JRE is installed and running on your system," but the little image it is suppose to show is all distorted just like Limewire. I've tried reinstalling Java and installing older versions, but to no avail. I've tried all the suggestions on Java's site, as well. Even the Java Contol Panel itself is distorted.

To even further test it, I tried playing Runescape, which is Java based, and other online applets. Strangely enough, Runescape worked perfectly fine! This really baffled me, but any other web based Java game still gives me the distorted image.

So, I rebooted my PC in safe mode, and everything Java related worked. The Java Control Panel, Limewire, etc all worked flawlessly! I have fully updated video and audio drivers, and my Windows is up to date. I have my firewalls and antivirus disabled. Anyone have any idea how I could get Java to work out of safe mode?
