Have you installed any software lately, such as HP printer software by chance?

yes, al, as a matter of fact i think this problem started right after downloading The Weather Channel Desktop! i have tried to uninstall it but was only partially successful. can you help me? it may also have something to do with McAfee. can't remember the sequence of events but i gathered from some info on screen that i needed to suspend their 'privacy service'. unfortunately, i screwed it up. i uninstalled everything but that. it's a mess.

You could always try Uninstall Plus! It is a program that is available on a trial basis HERE. I use it regularly and like it. Not only will it start a specific program's uninstaller, but then it will search the registry for any traces of the deleted program.

Just uninstalling the problem program may not restore the changes it made to your system.

If you know exactly when you installed it, use Windows System Restore to revert your system to a system state that existed before the installation.

Start/programs/accessories/system tools/system restore

Unless you have disabled it, the wizard should open offering you several restore points - by default one before you installed the problem program.
Select that or a previous available point and follow the onscreen directions.

i did try the windows system restore but it only gave me 1 choice, the day before, which was not far enough back to remedy the problem. is it possible i have disabled it and don't know it. how would i enable it again? just to double check, i just now went to system restore but it only let's me go back to the 16th which is the same day it gave me before. i believe i need to restore to the 13th. thanks for your assistance thus far.

From the FAQ page for desktop weather.

http://www.weather.com/services/desktop_install_faq.html#14

14. I seem to be unable to uninstall Desktop Weather from my computer. What can I do?

This is a known issue with the product, and will be resolved in a forthcoming release. Copying the UNWISE.EXE from the Framework folder to the Desktop Weather folder will resolve this issue. The steps are as followed:

1. Go to Start, Programs, Accessories, Windows Explorer.
2. In the left scroll window of Windows Explorer click the + next to My Computer, then click on the + next to C: drive to expand the view.
3. Scroll down that menu until you find the Program Files Folder.
4. Double click on the Program Files folder to expand the view.
5. Scroll down that menu to The Weather Channel FW folder and double click on it to expand the view.
6. Double click on the Framework folder to display the contents.
7. Right mouse click on the icon that says "UNWISE.EXE" on the pop-up menu click on COPY.
8. Go to the tool bar on the window and click the Back button.
9. In that window right mouse click on the "Desktop Weather" folder and in the pop-up menu click on PASTE.

From that point you will be able to proceed as normal with the uninstall.

Well, it seems to me that the issue is either with Java itself, or a program that is calling for Java but it is failing to launch properly for some reason. Therefore we can try resintalling Java, and if that does not fix the issue then we must search for the program that is having trouble launching Java.

It would easiest to reinstall Java, so let's do that first:
  • Go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs
  • Search in the list for all previous installed versions of Java. (J2SE Runtime Environment.... )
    It might have this icon next to it: Posted Image
    Select it and click Remove.
  • Download and install the newest version from HERE.
Reboot your computer and see if the issue persists.
