Java update problem

By dreux456

  1. I'm running Windows XP Pro on a refurbished laptop I recently purchased and downloaded the latest Java update. this resulted in one of my programs not running properly and everything I've tried to correct the problem has not worked. I've used system restore, add/remove programs, etc. and nothing seems to work. any ideas will be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

    I wish I had known about this small program long ago
    Just used it on my PC. Found and removed stacks of old Java stuff
    Brilliant :grinthumb

    What kind of update did you 'purchase'? Java and the updates are free.

    Download site: http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

    Bobbye, the thing the poster recently purchased was the laptop, not java. You might need to allow people to miss out vital punctuation occasionally ! Personally, I find incorrect spelling, syntax and punctuation makes some people almost impossible to help.

    And while I am at it, CCT gives a great post.

    How to read the right meaning in some of these post jobeard, but I do believe you're right about this.

    However, in all fairness, why even mention "I recently purchased". So this might be a better posting:
