Windows 7: Java Problem running IE9 in Win 7 64 bit

Java Problem running IE9 in Win 7 64 bit

Does anyone know how I can get rid of this error? I have scanned the web for so long for an answer that I finally realized I don't even understand the difference between Sun Java and Oracle Java nor do I know how to get rid of either and start over. Any help offered will be greatly appreciated. Most Java forums are for Java developers, and I am only a user (and really do not understand why I am a user).

Try uninstalling Java. Sometimes uninstalling from control panel > programs and features leaves behind bits and pieces that can cause error messages or other problems. There's a free tool called JavaRa that can hopefully remove everything (files, directories, registry keys, etc) and also eliminate that error message.

Because this is a free product you may see different download buttons on the JavaRa home page. I've circled the one you should use. Also, the product is now at version 2.1 so don't be concerned that the home page screenshot still shows version 2.0

Once you've uninstalled Java, you may find that you can do without it. If you come across a web page that says you need Java, you can always reinstall it from the official Java site. Until then, try running your computer without it.

You might also consider checking your machine for damaged or corrupt system files by running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and immediately reboot the computer after each scan.

I tried your solution of using JavaRa and that appeared to do the trick. I tried to track down where the Sun Java application came from and it appeared to have been installed that same time I installed Pinnacle Studio 14. We are going to operate the PC without reinstalling that and see if all is well. The error message has disappeared for now.

Thanks.
