- SPECCY reads the SMART attributes from the drive and, in my experience, that "Good" status is not too reliable. So, treat that with a healthy dosis of suspicion.

Hi, Alexstrasza and Willy22!

 

Just to clarify, I am of course going to use Java; otherwise I would have uninstalled it already. And although my banking has ceased to use Java, at least for logon purposes, this is however certainly not the case for tax returns, so I really have no choice but to stick to Java. Or I can logon without Java, but in stead with an SMS code via my cell phone. But, in any case, in about half a year I am going to buy myself a new computer... :busy:

 

Regarding Windows Firewall, if I go to Security Center from Control Panel, in the Firewall section, it says; and I quote: "ESET Personal Firewall is currently on."

 

As for my HDD allegedly being about to fail, maybe hopefully it continues to perform fairly well in this computers foreseeable future...

 

Regards,

midimusicman79

We can easily check if your hard drive is failing or not :)

JcJ91sx.pngGSmartControl
Follow the instructions below to test your hard drive health with GSmartControl:
  • Download GSmartControl and save it on your Desktop;
  • Extract the content of the GSmartControl .zip archive and execute gsmartcontrol.exe;
  • Identify your drive in the list, and double-click on it to bring up it's window (usually you'll find your drive by it's size or it's brand name);
  • Go in the Perform Tests tab, then select Extended Self-test in the Test type drop-down list and click on Execute (this test can take a few hours to complete);
  • Once the test is over, the results will be displayed at the bottom of the window. Please copy and paste these results in your next reply;
  • Also, go in the Attributes tab and if you have any entries highlighted in red or pink, copy and paste their name in your next reply (or take a screenshot of the GSmartControl window and attach it in your next reply);

Hi again, Aura.

 

Thanks for the prompt reply, sir! :)

 

I just noticed your post, but please can you bear with me for another day, as I unfortunately have an important weekly appointment tomorrow which I have to keep. I will run GSmartControl and get back to you on Tuesday. I hope this is OK with you?

 

Regards,

midimusicman79

If you must use Java, many security researchers and computer security organizations caution users to limit their usage and to disable Java Plug-ins or add-ons in your browsers.

If you need Java for a specific Web site, consider adopting a two-browser approach. If you normally browse the Web with Firefox, for example, consider disabling the Java plugin in Firefox, and then using an alternative browser (Chrome, IE9, Safari, etc.) with Java enabled to browse only the site(s) that require(s) it.

Krebs On Security: ...Java

To defend against this and future Java vulnerabilities, consider disabling Java in web browsers until adequate updates are available. As with any software, unnecessary features should be disabled or removed as appropriate for your environment.

Hi, JohnC_21, Aura., Willy22, Alexstrasza and quietman7.

 

Thanks to all for the prompt and technical replies! And thanks for sticking with me in this matter!

 

Finally, I have now uninstalled Java :thumbdown: , because it luckily turns out that I no longer need it. Good riddance! And thanks to every one of you for convincing me! I am sorry for being so stubborn!

 

Does it matter that there still are several leftover registry entries belonging to Java on my computer (I did a quick search with SystemLook)?

 

Aura., have you found out what problem my Network Adapter has?

 

Can you please help me ascertain if my HDD is failing or, hopefully, not?

 

I downloaded and ran GSmartControl, and here is the log pasted below:

 

A screenshot of the Attributes tab is also attached below:

midimusicman79

Your hard drive will eventually fail. Despite the RAW values of the three highlighted lines being only 1, it means that your hard drive is on the road of failure. I would take a back of your data and buy a new hard drive whenever you can. If you wish on keeping using it, I would take periodic back-up just in case it decides to fail.

Hi again, Aura.!

 

Thanks for the prompt reply, sir!

 

So, pretty bad news for my HDD then... :( Well, I suppose this is the downside of having an old computer. I do realize that I cannot prevent my hard drive from ultimately failing, however I have already scheduled daily backups in order not to loose any important data. And as goes for buying myself a new drive, I think it is hard to find any duplicate or equivalent, and besides, like I stated in post #17, in about half a year I am going to buy myself a new computer... Therefore I wish on keeping it, even though I know it is risky.

 

I would appreciate that you please answer the two first questions in my previous post, regarding leftover Java registry entries and my Network Adapter.

 

Thank you very much for the help, sir!

 

Regards,

midimusicman79

I don't see a question related to Java Registry entries. Also, the Network Adapter is your D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G132 Wireless USB Adapter.

Well do you have Java installed or not now? And leftovers don't really matter. If you want, you're free to reinstall it and uninstall it with a powerful uninstaller so all these entries can be picked up and deleted but that's up to you. And for your Network Adapter, I would need to see if it still throws errors.

Hi again, Aura.!

 

No, I do not have Java installed now, like I stated in post #22. Following my own initiative I downloaded Java 7 update 76, reinstalled it, and then I downloaded JavaRa 2.6, uninstalled Java with Windows Installer from within JavaRa, and fully completed the uninstallation with(in) JavaRa, which reported having removed 41 items in the registry. I also uninstalled an outdated version of Netscape Navigator, and afterwards there were actually a few less leftover registry entries belonging to Java on my computer. :thumbup2:

 

Yes, my Network Adapter still throws errors :( ; and here is the Farbar MiniToolBox log:

 

Just thought I should mention that prior to making this help request, I have tried several ipconfig- and netsh-commands in an attempt to fix my Network Adapter on my own, but unfortunately to no avail. Please, let me know if you want me to list them.

 

Regards,

midimusicman79

After further investigation it seems that there's no real "fix" for that, here:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/support/ee/transform.aspx?ProdName=Windows+Operating+System&ProdVer=5.2&EvtID=1002&EvtSrc=DHCP

Since it's small error that doesn't affect the user experience, I guess we can leave it be.

Hi again, Aura.!

 

Thanks for the prompt and calming reply, sir!

 

You are quite right - it is rather normal and not really a cause for concern. :thumbup2:

 

Thank you for the help, sir!

 

Feel free to optionally close topic. :)

 

Regards,
