java not working after uninstall and reinstall
« on: May 04, 2013, 01:29:23 AM »
Thought I needed to keep something up to date that didn't appear to be with java.  Now it no longer works after several installs and reinstalls.

I am a bit frightened to disable my avast (cause I have some floating xfinity thing on my screen, my sound card fails several times an hour, and problems with adobe working).  I always run avast in silent gaming mode, and haven't had any messages that there were problems with java.

Could avast be blocking something that I need in my downloads of java?  Is it safe to disable it?  I do boot time scans, and have several trojans in my virus chest, but nothing new has been detected since a trojan in Turbo Tax last February.   I am running the free version of Avast with Windows XP Pro OS.

Thank you for any help that you could provide.
