Every once in a while I keep getting a flashing pop up at the bottom of my screen saying a Java update is available wanting me to click it. In the past I have done that and got a virus from it. (Bleeping computers helped me get rid of it)I run a scan with avast and malwarebytes that I have installed but they never find a virus. I am just asking if I can trust it or is it a virus thats hidden so well that it cant be detected by avast or maywarebytes?

If you want to make sure of a java update is legit. Go to your java control panel settings, update tab and make sure notify before downloading is set or click update now to confirm of a new update is release. http://www.java.com/en/download/help/java_update.xml

Thank you Jhayz .. It did need to be updated. The last virus I had snuck in attached to a file such as Java and I was scared.
I have one more question if you dont mind please .. at restart I get a message box from SAIICpl thats says "The required .NET framework is not found! The SmartAudio II application will be terminated" .. what does that mean?

It sounds like a corrupted audio driver. Go to your manufacturing support site and look for the correct driver for your computer model and operating system used and uninstall the current and run the newly downloaded driver. If you need help regarding the driver, please post more information.

Ok I probably screwed up .. I am a little lost as to the audio driver .. I clicked on the audio driver in uninstall programs to see it and it uninstalled before I knew it .. it had no file size I did see that much. I went on Toshiba website and could not find my model number
Toshiba Satellite L655D-S5093 ser# 9A075163W .. am I in trouble?
weird thing is .. my audio sounds great

If your audio is working properly...you don't need a driver for that function :).
