java keeps saying it needs updated on IE10 and favorites erased

So yesterday I had an issue connecting my new laptop to the Wi-Fi at my university and when I connected I was able to use Google Chrome, but I was unable to access IE and I thought to myself that I should reset IE and I did and of course I was still having issues connecting to the Wi-Fi, but I finally got that fixed and then I reset again, well after both times I reset IE all of my favorites ended up getting erased and I think it has something to do with Toshiba's software because when I told it not to save my personal settings it reset back to Toshiba's homepage, but on my old laptop after I had reset IE my favorites was still there any reason what could be causing this and after I got all my favorites back on Facebook at the bottom of my screen I started getting a message saying that Java needed to be updated before I could run it or it could pose as a security risk to my computer, why is this popping up for when I know java is updated to the most recent version on my computer thanks guys

Hi,
As far as the new popup message which I don't believe it has anything to do with the version of java you have installed it's because of the game is using a out of date java applet

Not sure what's up with the favorites issues but it is recommended to back them up before reset to be safe :/

its good to know that it is not an outdated version of Java and the thing about the favorites puzzled me to, but I do backup m whole entire computer on a weekly basis, I think that my favorites getting erased has something to do from one of Toshiba's programs and I don't know which one it could be, but I hope I can get it figured out and get the program oof my computer

Hi,
Yea if the computer is out of warrantee it might be time to do a fresh install and get rid of all of that crapware
Jury is still out if the updates will be a good or bad thing for gamers :/

doing a clean install is something that I rather not do because I may mess up my computer and going to Toshiba's website to find the correct drivers I need might be a problem and there is no 2nd drive on my laptop that has all the software I need built in I really just thought about doing away with java completely and only install as I need it which is like for 10 minutes everyday

Hi,
I believe all you need to do is make a driver disk before doing a clean install,
All drivers will still be available on their website,
I did my lappy and everything is good actually better no crapware
But like I said once out of warrantee you really have nothing to loose :/
Cheers.
