Hi,
I am trying to run a java applet in a game (Managerzone) but it never fully loads.It varies from only the java logo displaying and nothing else happening, to, part of the background being displayed, and a percentage of the game loading (from about 20% to 70%) and then stopping. This will vary each time I hit the button to run the applet.
I have the latest version of java installed and have went to the java website and done a java test and it says that Java is working. It has worked on this computer before but it was a while since I used it, so I don't know what changes I have made to the computer that might have affected it. I have tried it on IE and Firefox and the applet works okay on another computer (also windows 7).
Does anyone know what might be the problem?

Try emptying the Java Cache by TFC:

Note: Before using TFC, please close all Windows because, TFC will close them all. So you maybe loss some temporary files were you are working on, if you don't close all...

Download Temp File Cleaner (TFC) to your desktop.
  • Double click on TFC.exe to run the program.
  • Click on Start button to begin cleaning process.
  • TFC will close all running programs, and it may ask you to restart computer.

Note: If your antivirus gives an alert about TFC, this is a false positive and can be ignored.

Thanks Elfasso,

I done as you suggested but unfortunately it did not make any difference - the problem is still the same.

Do you or anyone else have any other suggestions?

I have a few Java applications installed, but I am not sure if they are needed or not, they are;

Java™ 6 Update 20 - Publisher is Sun Microsystems, inc. - Installed on 09/08/11
Java™ 7 Update 5 - Publisher is Oracle - Installed on 29/06/12
JavaFX 2.1.1 - Publisher is Oracle Corporation - Installed on 20/06/12

Should I uninstall any of these?

You need the following

Java7 Update 5
JavaFX 2.1.1

After you remove this updated
Remove Java6 Update 20

Go to http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp to verified that the java is up to data

Thanks Coxchris,

I have uninstalled Java 6 Update 20 and run the 'verify Java Version' which says that I have the recommended version installed. I have tried the game applet again, but, unfortunately the problem is still the same.

Do you or anyone else have any other suggestions?

Did you try to reset IE and firefox

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Reset-Internet-Explorer-settings-in-Internet-Explorer-9
and
http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/reset-preferences-fix-problems

Google chrome has java built in to its web browser if you want to try google chrom

Hope that helps somewhat

Problem Solved!!

I thought about what activites I have changed recently and remembered that I changed my Antivirus software in the past few months from McAfee to AVG - So I disabled it and tried the game applet and it works okay. So anytime I want to run this applet I just have to disable AVG temporarily and it will work okay.

Thanks to everyone who took the time and effort to offer advice, much appreciated.

You can put Java in as a exclusion on your AVG
