IE 6 locking up because of Java?

by kevin80302 / September 26, 2004 12:10 PM PDT

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!!!!!

Desktop IE Right click IE>
General> (heading)
click "settings" (tempory internet files)
click "view objects"
this opens the Downloaded Programs File
It has the Active X objects listed.
click once on 1 of them (does not matter which one)
then ... go to the FILE (thats located on the toolbar)
click "file" and in the drop down box select SHOW ALL FILES.
Then click on TOOLS (thats located on the toolbar as well) and in the drop down select "folder options"
clcik the "view" header
In the "hidden files and folders" choices select SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS
Apply - Ok

Damn that was alot of typing. lol
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 had a similar problem at a client , so what i did is: check if your video card needs a patch for your video driver, specially if you have nvidia.

Try this:
download and reinstall, or you could look at Suns java package (since it is a better vm, MS purposely uses a weak version to try and "push" Active x and .net)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
