A couple of thoughts.
If you are using IE, empty out all Temporary Internet Files and maybe cookies too.
If using XP, do you have at least SP2?
(It is a good idea to go to your Control Panel here at BC, and put in as much info about your computer as you can, then we can have a quick glance there).
You may also find some info herehttp://www.java.com/en/download/help/
You can also try this:
To Clean out the Java cache:
Go into the Control Panel and double-click the Java Icon.
Under Temporary Internet Files, click the Delete Files button.
There are three options in the window to clear the cache - Leave ALL 3 Checked
Click OK on Delete Temporary Files Window
Note: This deletes ALL the Downloaded Applications and Applets from the CACHE.
Click OK to leave the Java Control Panel.
Also, if there is no sign of Java in Control Panel >>ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS, you can go to My Computer>C:>Program Files and delete any folders relating to Java there. (I have just deleted Update 6 from my computer with another program and there were over 600 folders and 100 registry entries related to that update cluttering up the system, so again I recommend you run the Live OneCare scan).
