Over the past few days, I have had many problems with Java. These problems started when I tried to play an online game called minecraft (easy to play and so simple, its fun). The box for the game (using java) never showed up. It was odd because I had never had the problem. My immediate reaction was to uninstall Java, and then reinstall it. While uninstalling I got error 1723, which lead me to believe there was a problem with Windows Installer, which I found it did not have. I got this error multiple times. In my frustration I decided to go into my program files folder and delete the entire Java directory, even though I knew it would only make matters worse. After deleting the directory, I tried my luck at reinstalling Java. Sadly, no luck. I am now unable to use Java, and I am unable to play or host a server for Minecraft. Any help on fixing this problem is much appreciated. thanks in advance.
