Preferred Solution: Java Runtime Environment 1.4.2_06 Uninstall

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 month or so a go I downloaded a programme (I think it was an mp3 programme) and it required Java Runtime Environment in order to work. So I downloaded that. I also seem to have Java Web Start as well.

About the same time I started to have a lot of problems with the Internet, and posted on the Web and Email forum. What happened was I could connect to the Internet but could not open any sites or my email. (Host not found and Server error messages). This was an intermitent thing and did not always happen.

A couple of days ago I could not access a certain site at all. It would start to load, then freeze and eventually crash. In desperation I just left it for a while and when I came back I found the site had loaded. It took 5 minutes. Then I noticed a strange icon in the systray. It was Java Console. I opened this and it contained a list of things which didn't mean a lot to me, for example: c:clear console window and f: finalize objects on finalization queue and many more. The icon is still in the systray, there is no exit facility. Even if I close the box, the icon is still in the systray.

I am now having many more crashes than I ever had before, more in the last few weeks than in the last year.

I can't help thinking these programmes have something to do with my current problems. I have done everything to make sure my computer is clean, defrag, spider, scandisk, antivirus, reinstalled modem, checked with ISP tech support, checked internet settings and there is no... Read more

I have never had any problems with my Java until I downloaded the newest version (7) the other day. Now, when I go on POGO.com and try to play most of the games I receive the following message:

The Java Runtime Environment cannot be loaded from
<C:\PROGRA~2\Oracle\JAVAFX~1.1RU\bin\server\jvm.dll>

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Java several times and that has not helped, and I have even gone to a few websites, including java.com, and followed some vague instructions that were supposed to solve the problem - all to no avail. Pogo is quite literally my lifeline to the outside world (yes, I know how that sounds,) since I am disabled and unable to leave my house without a lot of hassle. I am not a computer genius, but if someone knows how to fix this problem and can give me some clear instructions I would really appreciate it a lot. Of course, that is provided that it is a problem that can be fixed and not something that has gone wrong with my computer!! :cry I have a Toshiba laptop that is only about one year old. I use Windows 7 for my OS, and while I prefer Firefox or Chrome, I can also use IE, Safari, or Opera. I hope there is an answer to my problem, and hope to hear from someone soon!! :clap:clap

Thanks
 

Answer:Java Runtime Environment

It looks as though you have JavaFX installed - refer to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javafx/overview/index.html
Is there any reason that you have this installed rather than the regular Java Runtime Environment?
If not, I'd uninstall anything Java related, then download the JRE installer available from http://majorgeeks.com/Sun_Java_Runtime_Environment_d7567.html

Answer:java runtime environment

I'm not exactly sure what it is you installed, perhaps some developer's program -- but if you have Windows XP and you think you are suffering some after effects of the installation -- do a System Restore.

Start > Run: msconfig > launch system restore

and select a calendar date prior to the installation.

Some time ago I installed the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) which
adds a plug-in to IE. I must have had a good reason for installing
it at the time, I just can't remember what it was!

Since it loaded shortly after IE it became a nuisance, so I removed the
check mark from Tools > Internet Options > Advanced. I haven't thought
about it much until now.

Is is worth uninstalling the old version of JRE and installing the new?
(1.4.2 is the latest version.) In other words, does Windows run any
better with JRE installed? As far as I can tell, it just adds another
uneeded process to an already bloated and sluggish browser.

Answer:IE & Java Runtime Environment

It all depends. There are certain pages and applications that you can see only if you are using java. If you don't feel neglected by not being able to view them, then NO you don't need java. However, if you want to get the most out of your browsing experience you probably will want to use it.
If you decide to use it, uninstall what ever you have now in Control Panel -Add/Remove - java- and go here:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html

and download J2SE v. l.4.2_06 JRE

Download it to your desktop and click to install.

Java software allows you to run applications called "applets" that are written in the Java programming language. These applets allow you to have a much richer experience online than simply interacting with static HTML pages.

Java Plug-in technology, included as part of the Java Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (JRE), establishes a connection between popular browsers and the Java platform. Java allows applications to be downloaded over a network and run within a guarded sandbox. Security restrictions are easily imposed on the sandbox. Many cross platform applications also require Java to operate properly.

Quick question. I just got the message that an updated Java 2 Runtime Environment was available for download and installation. So I clicked to have it downloaded. Then when it downloaded, I clickd to have it installed.
Seeing as how I had decided a few weeks ago to partition my drive and start installing all my software to my logical 'D' drive, as this is what I've done with all my other computers, I changed it's install location to a folder on that drive

Now, I have in my Add/Remove Programs listing two items:

Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2_5 (108MB) in the folder I just installed it to on my 'D' drive.

Can I safely 'Remove' the earlier version off my C drive utilizing Add/Remove programs? Or would there be any reason NOT to take it off? If there's no problem with remove it I'd like to, seeing as how it's sucking up 136MB of space.

I have the latest version of Java (7.25), but this appears in add/remove, also.

Googled and found only old references that weren't specific enough for me to be able to discern exactly what this program is...:-o
 

Answer:Java 2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6

Java 7 update 25 in add/remove programs is legitimate. You should also see a Java icon in your control panel to quickly enable and disable java.

I prefer to use JavaRA to remove all Java.
http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/javara.html
Java used to be extremely poor at removing old versions when it updated. I think this was finally fixed in v 7, update 22. Before that, a computer might have several updates of v6 and several updates of v 7 that were security risks.

Note: I do not recommend using JavaRA to install the latest version. I did that once and got an out of date version so I had to run it again to clean off Java.

I'm trying to remove java RTE from my win XP comp. Add/Remove programs shows 5 instances of J2SE RTE Update 1, Update 2, Update 4 - 6. (What happened to #3 ). All are 117MB files, if that means anything.

When I press "remove" it goes into the install mode and after a few seconds I get an error message "You already have a version installed . Please uninstall..." I press OK then a couple of seconds later I get "Fatal Error during install".

I tried using Safemod and got an error saying (something like) "the Win Installer couldn't run - this may be because you're in safe mod or your XP is bad..."

As far as I know, java runtime environment(JRE) is only used when a webpage needs java.
But, I think most of webpages do not use JRE nowadays.
Stand-alone-software such as SPSS, SAS, and Matlab use java, but SPSS, SAS, and Matlab installers have their own java packages that are different from JRE.

So, I don't think JRE needs to be installed (e.g.,http://java.com/en/ )

Java allows you to play online games, chat with people around the world, calculate your mortgage interest, and view images in 3D. These applications, written in the Java programming language and access from your browse, are called ?applets?. Corporations also use Java applets for intranet applications and other e-business solutions. Java is used by companies in all major industries. Whether deployed on cell phones, embedded devices, game consoles, laptops, or in datacenters, Java offers the rich user interface, performance, versatility, portability, and security that today?s networked applications require. Java Platform Standard Edition software is the premier platform for rapidly developing and deploying secure, portable applications that run on server and desktop systems spanning most operating systems. JRE contains the Java virtual machine, runtime class libraries, and Java application launcher that are necessary to run programs written in the Java programming language.

Hi Frank,

My understanding is that this environment is for application development suitable for the Sun Developers URL you provide in your second link. If you are not developing Java applicatons then one only needs to download the latest J2RE Runtime environment in order to run Java applications.

The latest J2RE environment is 1.5.0 update 4 available from here. The file size is 82KB. Unfortunately, I cannot find a separate JRE update 5 at the Sun Developers URL.

That version of Java is for developpers and although it does work, it's not designed for the general public.

You should install Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0.29 (32-bit).
Try installing Java in Safe Mode with Networking (Java needs to access the Internet to install).

The Windows Installer service won't start in Safe Mode. You'll need to first download SafeMSI.

Looks to me like you are trying to install an update to the 1.5 runtime environment. try following this link http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html and choose "Download J2SE JRE"

it is only version 1.4.2 but this is still more widely used than 1.5 at the moment

alternatively if you are desperate for 1.5 go to here http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp and choose "Download JRE 5.0 Update 3"

At the moment i am still coding in java 1.4 and so are most other people until 1.5 is nice and stable anyway.
