    The missing DLL is for Java Deployment Toolkit, not sure what exactly it does. So, let's try w/ what you've got and see what happens.

    So do post #25 anyhow & put these in?

    msvcr71.dll
    npdeployJava1.dll
    npjp2.dll

    Minus the "npdeployJava1.dll" since for some reason, that wasn't installed. Probably not that big a deal anyway.


    So, the Flash plugin is deleted and you have to copy it again? That's weird.

    I hope I understood you correctly, here is what is in the "New Folder".

    Yep, that's it. Did it work?

    Nope. But since I don't use the web site I was using to test it out, I'm wondering if I'm wasting my time & yours ? This website http://trackermap.kingcounty.gov/tracker-map-launch.jsp

    is the one I was using to test it.
    Otherwise, I've noticed no problems in my daily surfing.

    Wasn't a waste of time. Some sites use Java, some don't. Better to get it resolved early so you don't have to think about whether the page you're viewing is loaded properly or not every time.

    So you don't see the map w/ the location of the buses?

    Here's a link to Mozilla kb: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Java
    It might have something that might help.

    Nope, the map don't show up & I've waited a minute or two.
    I'll go thru that Mozilla link tomorrow. I appreciate your patience & time with me.

    Well, I goofed. I thought I was updating Adobe in Firefox via that Mozilla link, but now it don't work in Firefox or SeaMonkey.
    Would installing an older version from here http://www.oldversion.com/
    work for java & Adobe?
    Adobe still works in Opera,but java don't.

    For Flash, I'd try uninstalling it and reinstall. Try using the uninstaller from Adobe: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html

    I've used it in the past when I had issues w/ the installation. It will remove all Flash from the computer, including the ones for IE, if I remember correctly.

    For Java, I think you've said that you've uninstall and reinstall it. Have you cleaned up the registry in between install? Not something I typically do unless I encounter problem. Like in your case where some files didn't appear to be installed properly.

    Can't comment on installing older version of anything. Haven't had any issues where upgrading broke something.

    Ok, I'll do do the uninstaller route.
    Ok, about the java. Before I started this thread, I was having no problems with java or Adobe.
    I've almost never had problems using filehippo updater which is where that picture in the first post came from. That same update is still showing when I click my filehippo updater.
    I don't go into the registry because I know what can happen if I do & I don't have a back up pc.

    I have revo uninstaller & just checked it & saw the java icon like what is supposed to be in the control panel in revo.
    Do you think if I used revo to uninstall java & then do a search for it to remove remnants & reboot do you think it would be better than going into the registry? I've uninstalled other programs that way. JUST a thought :).

    Sorry, I meant using CCleaner for cleaning the registry. I haven't tried Revo, but from various posts I've read in the Techspot forum, it's been recommended lots of times. CCleaner can backup the registry entries before deleting them. If Revo has similar function, I'd suggest backing up the files before it deletes them, just in case. But, sure, uninstall it with Revo, then reinstall Java.

    Ok, I've heard of using ccleaner to do such but in all honesty, I'd need step by step instructions so I could write them down. I don't have a printer.Will have to tackle this tomorrow when more awake,thanks.

    Download CCleaner: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard

    Run the program. On the left side, it'll show "Cleaner", "Registry", "Tools" & "Options"

    Select "Registry", then at the bottom, there's a button that says "Scan for Issues".

    Click on that & let it do it's thing. You'll see a list of issues w/ box next to each that's already checked

    Then click on "Fix Selected Issues"

    Select Yes when it asks if you want to back up changes to the registry. I use the file name it provides. The default directory where the backup is saved is My Document

    Then click on Fix all Issues

    That's about it. Then reboot your computer afterward.

    Ok,I've done as you've explained & am going to reboot now.

    That was painless.:) Now go get java?

    Yep. Install Java and see whether it'll work in FF.

    learninmypc TechSpot Evangelist Topic Starter Posts: 5,104   +223

    :( Not in Firefox, SeaMonkey or Opera.
    When I was installing it,it told me it was already installed & asked me if I wanted to install it anyway & I said yes.

    If you open the Java Control Panel in Control Panel, and click on the Advance tab. Then click on Default Java for Browsers and Java Plug-in, all boxes should have a check.

    learninmypc TechSpot Evangelist Topic Starter Posts: 5,104   +223

    There is no java Control Panel in the Control Panel

    Ok, let's check the fold where Java was installed. Should be something like "c:\program files\java". Now, take a look at the "bin" folder in "jre6". Is there a "javacpl.cpl"? If so, then copy that to "c:\windows\system32".

    You should now see Java in Control Panel.
