Now to the point, You will probally notice on your java version 1.4.2_05 (probally 2 or 3 of them listed) take a close look at the CREATION DATE
more than likely it has a year of 2068.
CORRUPTED! Sorry but thats as far as Im going to advise you in this matter. Just know java is corrupted, enabled or not, its got corrupted.
Needs to be removed? I believe so.
Needs replaced? I believe so.
Do I have the PROPER removal and replacement instructions? NO lol But I do know that without java the games work just fine. I deleted the 3 corrupt Active X objects and java works just fine?
Hope this helps in your diagonsis, good luck with getting a CORRECT reply to this question. I need to do whatever is recommended too.
I am having problems when I goto websites that call up java. Internet Explorer locks up when java starts. I have java version 1.4.2_05 installed.
It happens most with pages from ESPN. I now have java disabled so this doesn't happen but then I have to enable it when I want to use a java appellet(sp).
What is causing this!!!!!
