I play a game Called FM2007 which uses Java. I also occasionaly visit a site from my home town called Lossiefowk which also uses Java. When I visit this site I get a little Java icon in my task bar which disappears when I exit. This afternoon I visited Lossiefowk for the first time in months. This evening I went to play my game and as soon as I inserted the DVD Rom the Java Runtime starts loading and then the installation manager box appears as if I am going to make a new installation. I close this and then click on my game shortcut to load my game. This happens every time I insert the disc which is irritating as the game is already installed on my PC. I need to insert the disc or my game won't load. I went to the Lossiefowk site again and right clicked the icon to see if I could figure out how to stop this happening but couldn't see anything obvious.
I know it is something to do with my hometown site as the same thing happened once before only it never clicked for me why at the time. At around the same time it happened before, SI Games came out with a new patch for FM2007 and I decided at the time to do a clean uninstall/reinstall and start a new game with the new patch. The Java Runtime / Installation Manager problem disappeared of course when I reinstalled the game.
The game has been working perfectly since until today when I visited the Lossiefowk site. I realised immediately that the last time this happened was the last time I visited my hometown site and realised there must be a connection.
Does anyone understand what causes this and more importantly how do I stop it from happening.
Again, thanks in advance for any help offered.
