Hi, when surfing around, this message often comes up about half the time, it never used to happen, any idea what it means and if there's a remedy? I'm Win 8.1 and AOL, thanks-

 

"We encountered an error handling the most recent page action. Error code: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION"

 

(PS- I've run AVG scans several times but "No threats were found")

Update- I just found this below at the Java website, it seems they're "still working" on the issue.

It's been malfunctioning for about 3 weeks now, so I wonder if/when they'll ever fix it..

 

On Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems, while attempting to install Java or running Java applets or applications, error message is displayed-

Error : Exception_Access_Violation

 

CAUSE

 We are still investigating root cause of this issue.

 

SOLUTION

This issue could be seen due to User Account Control (UAC) feature enabled on Windows Vista or Windows 7 operating system.

UAC is enabled by default in Windows Vista and Windows 7, as a result, you might encounter some compatibility problems with different applications that have not yet been updated for the Windows UAC component

Temporarily disabling UAC may resolve the exception access issue, however, turning off UAC reduces the security of your system. We do not recommend leaving UAC disabled.

Funny thing is, I never get the error message when surfing with Internet Explorer, it only happens when I surf with AOL.

Seeing as the Java people admit it's broken, shall I uninstall Java and replace it with something else? Recommendations?

What the heck does Java do anyway?

Wow this thread has been up for 2 weeks now and still hasn't had a single reply (sniffle).

In all my years of asking questions at Bleeping, that's only ever happened once before!

Have I posted it in the wrong section or something?

If so, perhaps the mods can move it to another section?

Thanks
