Java might be causing screen to freeze

  1. Hi,

    Every time I've run the 8-steps virus removal, I've also checked that my Java is up to date and have updated it when necessary.

    However, while researching my family tree today I went to register with the Scottish Register and they had a feature whereby you had to test to see if your Java was working to be able to read the varous documents online, and so I tested it and my Java was not and infact caused my computer to crash.

    Throughout today and on other occasions my screen still freezes and I wonder whether it is my Java download that is corrupt and whether it would be a good idea to uninstall it completely (I first installed it to watch BBC IPlayer) and download it again, in which case, which site is the best site to download from?

    Hi composed,

    There's an error with a digital signature on that page, it's out of date, that's probably causing your browser to crash :(

    I just tested with Firefox 3.06 (latest is 3.07).

    You may be able to tweak the security settings in your browser to allow or trust

    Good luck,
