  1. Hey guys first time poster here always roamed around getting usefull information =)

    Im running vista on my laptop and i was trying to update java but before the installation is complete i get an error code "Internal error 2330. 1392". tried to research it on the website but there is none

    and when open up some of my programs it tells me that Java file is corrupted and i cant even open up the file

    So in essence i cant re instal or uninstall or update my java runtime eniviroment

    anyhelp would be jsut super

    thanks in advance!

    Try installing the newest version first. This may overwrite the corrupt files allowing you to uninstall it. Is there a repair option in the uninstall?

    Normally, Java doesn't overwrite, but if you can get the newest version on the system, you can then uninstall the older version.

    Download latest Java here: v6u10: http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

    This error is most commonly seen with Adobe and MSMoney, but the same direction applies.

    Still didnt work. When i ran the program it says its deleted but the File "Java" is still in program files. when i tried to reinstall java the same error message of corrupted java files came up again!

    Okay, we're narrowing down the possibilities:

    1. Try doing the uninstall and reinstalls in Safe Mode.
    2. If that fails, we should check for malware. Please follow the steps here and then attach the logs:

    By doing #2, malware can be removed and we can see everything that is running on the system- remove entries causing problems.
