I came back home after being gone for 6 weeks to find that everything involving Java seems to fail or crash. I noticed it originally because the launcher program for Minecraft would not open at all. Also going to the Minecraft website to try and play online said I needed a Java plugin. When I downloaded the plugin and reloaded the page my browser (IE and firefox) instantly closed down with no error report. The browsers also crash at the Java website after clicking on the "Verify java Version" button.

I have uninstalled all Java related things, restarted, scanned for viruses with Security essentials and malware with malware bytes. Reinstalled Java and still the same problems. I have tried this with only 32 bit java or only 64 bit or both installed together. I have also tried downloading an older Java 6 version.

I also noticed that the Java control panel does not open (open control panel, search 'java' and click 'Java 32-bit') and if I have Java uninstalled then the Minecraft launcher pops up telling me that I need java installed.

I am using 64 bit Windows 7 but my main browser is 32bit firefox. All my searching online involves browsers crashing but showing error messages or Minecraft launcher opening but then showing only a black screen rather than not opening at all.

Thank you.

Do you have Adobe Flash Player 64-bit?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

No, I have Flash Player 32-bit. But I've had it the whole time even back when everything worked ok.
