Java will not load onto the computer how do i fix this problem

What others are saying:

By Brien Posey in 10 Things, August 1, 2013, 10:33 AM PST 1: Verify the error I have seen a couple of situations in which an installation error was displayed even though Java installed correctly. Therefore, I recommend beginning the troubleshooting process by verifying that Java really isn't working. The easiest way to do this is to go to this special test page, which will tell you conclusively whether Java is working.
  • 2: Remove version conflicts If the installation appears to succeed, but Java is not working, check to see whether the Java Control Panel exists within the Windows Control Panel. If the Java Control Panel is missing, the problem is often related to a conflict with JavaFX or legacy Java code. In these situations, you should use the Windows Control Panel to remove any instances of Java. After doing so, use theMicrosoft uninstaller to clean up any Java fragments. Then, try installing Java again.
    3: Use the offline installer The Web installer for Java tends to be a little bit buggy. That being the case, the offline installer package will sometimes succeed where the Web installer fails. You can download the offline installer for Windows.
    4: Try the 32-bit version If you're having trouble installing a 64-bit version of Java, try using the 32-bit version instead. Although 64-bit Java would seem to be the logical choice for use on a 64-bit operating system, the 32-bit version seems to have fewer issues.
    5: Install with administrative privileges If you run into problems installing Java on Windows 7 or Windows 8, try installing Java as an administrator. To do so, download the offline installer and save it to an empty folder on your hard disk. Then, right-click on the executable file and choose the Run As Administrator command from the shortcut menu.
    6: Temporarily disable User Account Control Some people have reported that the User Account Control feature gets in the way of installing Java. If you suspect that the User Account Control feature is causing your problem, you can temporarily disable it until after the installation is complete. The method for doing so depends on the version of Windows you're using. In Windows 8, the option to change the User Account Control settings is found in the Control Panel under System And Security ' Action Center.
    7: Set Internet Explorer's security to the default level If Internet Explorer is configured to use a higher-than-default security level or if it is running a custom security level, there is a possibility that Java may be blocked. You can set Internet Explorer to the default security level by opening your browser and selecting the Internet Options command from the Tools menu. When the Internet Options dialog box appears, click on the Security tab and click the Default Level button. Click OK to save your changes.
    8: Temporarily disable your antivirus scanning There have been some reports of antivirus software preventing Java from being installed. If you want to see whether your antivirus is causing your problem, I recommend downloading the offline installer, updating your antivirus software, and then performing a full system scan. This will help make sure that there are no infections on your system before you disable the antivirus software.
    Once you're confident that your system is free of malware, you can temporarily disable the antivirus scanning process. The method of doing so will depend on the antivirus product you are using, but often it is possible to right-click on the antivirus software's taskbar icon and choose a pause option from a shortcut menu. When you have finished attempting your Java installation, don't forget to re-enable antivirus scanning.
    9: Check for a corrupt user profile According to Microsoft, a corrupt user profile can cause problems with Java installations. Try creating a new user and assign that user local administrative permissions. Then, log in using the new user account and try installing Java.
    10: Use the System Configuration tool Since problems with Java installations are often related to other software that is running on the system, you may be able to fix the problem by temporarily disabling other startup items. The easiest way to do that is to open a Run prompt and enter the MSCONFIG command. This launches the Windows System Configuration utility, which allows you to choose the startup items that you want to disable without requiring any permanent changes to the operating system.
    Other tricks? Have you found some other workarounds or fixes for dealing with Java install headaches? Share your suggestions with fellow TechRepublic members.
  • I have had the same issue on certain machines.
  • For me uninstalling and clearing the Cache before getting a new version worked most often.
  • Only use the Java site for download
  • use the ten suggestions above
  • Java can be a pain
  • good luck

    Delete any new programs that you have downloaded.

    Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system is a bad download that installs harmful files.

    If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product.

    Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in the Control Panel to get rid of the program immediately.

    Uninstall the program that is crashing.

    It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.

    Run a full scan of your computer.

    Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system.

    If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem.

    Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible.

    Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer."

    The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.

    Reinstall the program that was crashing.

    Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after reinstallation.

    Check for program incompatibility.

    If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and reinstallation of your program, the

    Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your operating system or other programs on your computer

    rather than purchasing an antivirus program use one of these freeware programs

    microsoft security essentials your operating system must be registered

    Win7/Vista/XP 64 bit anti malware free edition Win XP/2003/Vista/Windows7

    malware protection

    windows xp microsoft security essentials

    Dear Sir, I have download NetQuin and BullGuard Mobile antivirus in .SIS format. But I am unable to install it. Kindly tell me hot install these antivirus program on Nokia 2730 Classic mobile. Thanks...

    You can not install .SIS files on your java mobile. Those files you downloaded are for phones running Symbian OS. *.jar files work on java mobiles such as yours but there are no anti viruses for java mobile. You can find various kinds of java anti viruses all over the net but almost all of them are bogus softwares.

    Redirct and error at 0x00000 when closeing IE or FireFox

    Well it is quite obvious however. I ll include manual removal instructions. Please follow the steps carefully.
    There will be 2 executable files which are Sysinternals Antivirus.exe and svchost.exe. Svchost is invoked by the other executable. There may be another one named alggui.exe
    You have to kill these two processes. First of all you have to do this:
    1. Start the Task manager by right clicking on the Taskbar.
    2. Go to Processes.
    3. Observe the processes.
    4. Right Click on processes and select End process for Sysinternals Antivirus.exe and alggui.exe. You will not be able to kill the svchost.exe however since there will be more than one and each represents a Valid system process. To find the exact process run by the file which resides in the "Program Files", I recommend you to use the Security Task manager for Windows.Here is the Link
    5. Use the tool and kill the exact process.
    Locating malicious files. The list of files I have already mentioned. But there are more.
    • C:Program Filesskynet.dat
    • C:Program Filessvchost.exe
    • C:Program Filesalggui.exe
    • %UserProfile%DesktopSysinternals Antivirus.lnk
    • %UserProfile%Start MenuProgramsSysinternals AntivirusSysinternals Antivirus.lnk
    • C:Program Filesadc_w32.dll. You must unregister this. Otherwise it will run again.
    • C:Program FilesSysinternals AntivirusSysinternals Antivirus.exe
    • %UserProfile%Start MenuProgramsSysinternals Antivirus
    • C:Program FilesSysinternals Antivirus
    • In variants there will be additional files (Sysinternals Antivirus.exe adc_w32.dll alggui.exe extra1.dat extra2.dat nuar.old skynet.dat svchost.exe wp3.dat wp4.dat dbsinit.exe wispex.html ccsmn.exe ccsmn151.acf ccsmn151.lti ccsmn151_0.acb ccsmn151_0.aci ccsrr.exe wmharun.log wmrun.log Sysinternals Antivirus.lnk)
    You have to search and delete each and every file.
    We have to set some additional things in order to see the Hidden and System files which are protected.
    1. Open My Computer.
    2. Go to Tools and then Folder Options.
    3. Click on View tab.
    4. Under the Option "Hidden Files and Folders", set it to "Show ..."
    5. Untick the "Hide Protected Operating System Files (Recommended)" as well.
    6. Now go to C partition and check whether you can see .sys and other hidden files including the System Volume Information folder. If so the procedure was successful. Otherwise you have to edit the registry or have to use the DOS command window to locate and delete these files.
    7. Use Windows search tool to search the files. Before searching set the More Advanced Options. Check for "All files and Folders". Drop down "More advanced options" and tick the Search System Folders, Search Hidden files and folders, Search Sub-folders options. Then do the search. If you find any file or folder you have to delete it. Before deleting, there is one more thing to do.
    • You have to stop the Startup Processes.
    • Click on the Start menu and hit on Run. Or type in Run if you have Vista.
    • Type in the Run box this. msconfig
    • Hit Enter.
    • Go to "Startup" tab. Examine the processes and remove the unwanted ones. You can browse for the valid ones.Specially note the Autorun.inf files. You must remove them if exist.Remember the path to each malicious file. Then uncheck the boxes. Hit Apply button. Then OK button.
    • Do not Restart the System when you have been asked.
    Stopping the System Restore services
    1. Go to Properties of My Computer.
    2. Go to System Restore.
    3. Turn off.
    Now you are ready to delete the files. Click on each file and Click SHIFT+DEL. Do not Right Click and Delete.
    Alternative way if Hidden files and folders are now shown
    • Get the Run box again and type in cmd and press Enter.
    • Type cd and hit Enter.
    • Now you will be in the System drive (C: most probably)
    • You have to use: cd foldername to move within folders.
    • Example: Type cd program files and hit Enter to go in to Program Files.CD denotes Change Directory.
    • To change the Partition you have to type Partition: and hit enter.
    • Example: D:
    • Locate each file and delete Except the adc_w32.dll because we have to Unregister it.
    • Go to each location which I have included here as well as shown in the msconfig tool.
    • Then use DIR /a /q to get the list of files.
    • Type DIR /a /q and hit enter.
    • Note: Note the spaces.
    • Now if you see the files type this and hit enter.
    • attrib -s -h -a -r
    • Then type Del with the file name.
    • Example: Del alggui.exe
    • What the attribute command does is changing the File attributes to normal ( - is used to remove the attributes. S is for System, H is for Hidden, A is for Archive, R is for Read Only).
    • Make sure you go to Root of each partition and check for Autorun.inf files (There may be batch files as well - .bat files, exe files etc. Check whether they are valid executables using the browser)
    • Now that part is done!
    Unregistering the DLL file before Deleting:
    • Get the Command Windows again using cmd.
    • Type in Regsvr32 /? and hit enter. If you get a Dialog Box that means its functioning.
    • If you do not have it obtain from here. Place the file in Windows/System32.
    • Type in Regsrv32 /u C:Pathadc_w32.dll and hit enter.
    • Path is the path to the file. It may be in the Program Files or Windows or WindowsSystem32. Use Search or Command Windows to find it. (Might be in the Startup in msconfig as well).
    • You can run this command without the Command Windows as well. Just enter it in the Run box and hit Enter. If you do properly it will show you a dialog box containing the Success message.

    What is the difference between Java editor and Java software?

    java editor is a text editor which probably understands java language synthax and can automatically call java to compile your code.
    Java software is a program written in Java programming language which is interpreted/executed by JVM(JAva virtual machine) on a target computer.
    Your question is a rough equivalent to : What is a difference between typewriter and a recipe book written in English language
