I had an unwanted malware problem with Java and deleted it. Took some time to find out what it was and just got rid of the lot.

 

Now I've tried to re-download Java to my PC and it won't let me. 

 

Every time I go to down load a Java page it comes up with "web page is not available".

 

Does anyone know what I did wrong or if there is something else wrong?

 

Thank you.

I always download Java from http://www.filehippo.com/search?q=java+runtime and it installs no problem.

 

I would do an anti-virus scan and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan to make sure everything is clear.

Hi Keithup,

 

Thank you for your kind reply and link,

 

I just downloaded it and thought it was great. However I still can't open certain web pages that I think are run on a Java platform.

Please post a link of a website that you think uses Java. Other than some chatrooms and games, most websites haven't used Java for years. You could be mistaken.

Hi Frank,

 

I think now it's a little more sinister. I'm now finding my PC won't open web pages like LG website and a few different ones.

 

I have Bitdefender but it doesn't seem to be finding anything wrong with my PC except the some malware that it removes each time it does a scan. 

 

Not sure what's going on now. Probably a big problem that I don't know what to do or how to deal with it.

 

I have tried to take screen shots of the pages but It won't paste into here for some reason.

 

Does anyone have any ideas of what may be happening here.

I think it's time for you to post at Am I Infected and see if you are clean.

How do I go about doing that. 

 

Is there a  place to go and work out what needs to be done. I have Malwarebites and it's not showing much in it.

You haven't said what you need java for, do you have a desktop program that requires it? if not you don't need it at all. To download it you are best to use oracle's own website, making sure to uncheck whatever spam they try to bundle with it( go through the custom install route). It won't be full verification of whether you are clean or infected but eset online scanner (available from this site) and kaspersky virus removal tool are good for second/third/fourth opinion scanners, set both of them to scan in as much detail as possible for malware, unwanted programs,vulnerable programs and adware but set them to detect and not remove as they can attack legitimate things by mistake, better to set them on "prompt on detection" rather than "automatically disinfect".


Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

Hi rp88,

 

I've gone to Am I infected and will see what needs to be done from there as I'm finding it wasn't with Java that I was having an issue. It was just that Java didn't open up and I thought it has to do with other web pages not opening. So it must be some sort of malware or virus that has infected my system.
