Windows 7: Internet browsers (IE & Chrome) close immediately after opening ???

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

It's always recommended to uninstall an older version of Java before downloading a new one. Just updating it seems to be discouraged by Oracle.

I guess I have been lucky. I have always just installed the latest version. I think removing Java is generally a harder task for most. A Guy

True, especially since browsers use Java to run apps like chats and stuff. There are a few programs written in Java that would also make uninstalling it harder, but it seems that generally Java just sucks by itself, and needs to be wiped out before installing a new one lol

I myself never had any issues, too

Windows 7 32bit Home Edition


First of all: sorry for this late reply.

I deinstalled all versions again. Also used JavaRA. Did some cleaning. Now it works better, but still not 100% (starting up may require some multiple tries, but once started it works fine). I am satisfied right now and don't have the time to spend more digging. If I ever come across a real solution I will post it here. I will mark the thread as solved though.

Thanx for all the help :).

You could always check if any websites you visit actually use Java itself; if not, you don't need it at all.

The most popular programs I can remember right off the bat that use or are written in Java are Vuze and Minecraft.
