Could be a number of reasons. I will suggest just one.

Had the problem 2 days ago after I had uninstalled 3 versions of Java,
intending to leave it off.

Went to a site, got the message you mentioned, saw the loading animation
before it bombed and recognised it as a Java feature.

Reinstalled Java version 6, Update 17 and hey presto.

If not applicable, hope you get other responses.

You can download ccleaner from this link but only use it to clear your browser cache " don't use it as a registry cleaner " http://www.piriform.com also just make sure that you uncheck any items in its listings that you don't want to remove like your favourites or browser passwords etc !

Hope this helps you out ! :thumbsup:
