Hello. I am brand new to this forum and as the title of my post says...I borked my javaw.exe after using a registry cleaner. I have tried since to fix it with no avail. I used Hijack This to get a log of my system and can post it. In the log from HJT, I see a couple of references to java but I'm scared to mess with anything else. I am using WinXP and this is an older computer. I use ESET security and I'm not sure which registry cleaner may have deleted my java files. I used one that did not create a restore point but other than the java, nothing else is wrong with the computer and it runs a lot faster except for the java issue. I have deleted and re-installed JAVA several times to no avail. Any suggestions/comments/advice/help are GREATLY appreciated.

The error says Javaw.exe has encountered a problem and must close. The details of the error say something about java.dll (missing I'm assuming)

I see this has been hanging around a long time with out a answer. What IMHO think is, once you use a registry cleaner no one knows what it has changed or removed. Therefor can't really help. I do not recommend using any registry cleaner, tune upper or what ever the 3rd party company care to call it. The only thing I can think of is save all you can and do a fresh install. I would wait around a little longer and see if some one here can help before doing the fresh install.
