:thumbsup: I am having problems with my Java application. When I am having my baseball draft on Java I am getting overlays on the screen. I can get rid of them for a few moments if I maximize the screen or restore it. In a few moments they are back again in different parts of the screen. I need help and I know I have gotten it here before, you guys are great. :flowers:
Have a great day,

I don't know what version it is and I am running Windows ME. And I don't know of any updates on Java, but my updates on windows have been completed. How can I find out what version it is??
Thank you for your help

Have you downloaded Jave from Sun.

Look in the Control Panel for a Java Icon. You also check for udates here.

Look in Add & Remove Programs it will tell you the version.
If it is 1.42 Remove it.

Download the updated version.

I have tried to download Java from Sun. I couldn't automatically down load the software and I also tried a manual download to my desktop. I have the icon on my desktop which I didn't have before. But I also get a error message when I try to get verification of the installation. It states that it encountered an issue while trying to automatically install java software. As a result the software wasn't installed properly. It does't list Java on my add or remove programs. I did a search for java files and I have a bunch, 8 folders , 3 java icons and somemore different ones. I know I have java on my system because it is needed on some of my applications which I can access, but not good. :thumbsup:
Have a great day,

Bud,
If I try to download Java 5.0 I get the error message that states "We encountered an issue while trying to automatically install java software onto your machine. As a result java software wasn't installed properly".
I do have java on my add and remove programs; j2se 5.0 up-date 4....
would I have to remove it before I can download it again. Could this be my problem???
Thank you for your help :thumbsup:
Have a great day,
Dtop

OK
You have the current version you just need to open the Control Panel>Double Click Java icon>Update Tab>Check for updates.

I did that and there were two updates to install. When I went to install them it just beeped and a Java error came up on my task bar. When I clicked on it a error message appeared; "Installation of update to Java ™ platform was not completed".

Open Java again>Click Delete Files>Then try to download updates again.
You will have to be connected to the internet.

If it will not install check for spyware & malware.

Bud,
I hate to keep bothering you with this problem. I downloaded the killbox and did a clean-up of all the files and I still cant get the Java up-dates to install.
Have a great day,
Dtop

Killbox is used by security people to delete stuborn files.
What are you using it to delete??

Did you run the cleaning programs I posted??
Did they find any spyware &/or malware??
Did you dump the Java Temp Files??
Control Panel>Java icon>Delete Files

I downloaded killbox because it said to under "Take out the trash". I ran it to deleate the files that are in a default location. I haven't run the other programs that you listed, but i will start.
Thank you
Have a great day,
Dtop

I don't think I told you that I have Mcafee security installed on my computer, virus scan and firewall. I do a scan and nothing is found.
Have a great day,

You do not have a NT base system but if it worked then that's fine.. :thumbsup:
Always us caution when using programs that have the ability to remove important OS files.

Yes Please run the cleaning programs and see if anything turns up.. :flowers:

<<edit>>

I don't think I told you that I have Mcafee security installed on my computer, virus scan and firewall. I do a scan and nothing is found.

McAfee is a good program, little of a resource hog but good, we are mainly looking for spyware.
Do you keep your subscription renewed & updated??
No virus software is 100% & I have seen viruses slip by.
