JAVA Troubleshooting Tips
Java won't install properly, again? Before you throw your computer out the window, there are some troubleshooting steps that you can take to try and fix the issue. Here are five top Java troubleshooting tips that will help you remain calm and fix that Java problem!
1. Check Out the Offline Installer. It's difficult to use the web installer for Java, which can sometimes be iffy. So, it is recommended that you use the offline installer instead. You can download the offline installer through various online websites.
2. User Account Control Issues : Here's a fast tip: disable the user account control. For some reason, this gets in the way of using Java properly. You can disable the User Account control, and enable it once again when you need it. Give this tip a try before all else, since it's a relatively simple fix.
3. Antivirus Troubles : Antivirus scanning can really get in the way of lots of programs, Java included. If your antivirus is currently set to scan, disable the protector temporarily. As with user account control access, you can enable your antivirus once again (and should) when you need it.
4. Get Rid of Other Programs : Again, this solution is temporary, so don't rush out an delete programs on your system! Instead, momentarily disable other programs that might be starting up. To do this, open up a Run prompt and enter the letters MSCONFIG to stop other startup programs from running.
5. Switch User Profiles : It's possible that your user profile is corrupt. That's why it's a good idea to try switching user profiles to see if the problem has been fixed. If your user profile is the issue, scrapping it and using a new one will fix the problem pronto. This is a simple way to figure out what's wrong with Java.
Still not working? Mess around with programs, user profiles, and anything else that might be interfering. The main problem with Java is that often this program can't run while anything else is running, but that's a simple enough fix. Go through the five steps listed here to see if you can troubleshoot the issue.
JAVA Troubleshooting Tips: Other Possible Solutions
If you use Internet Explorer, Explorer's security level may be the problem. Set Explorer's security level to the default option to see if this is what's bothering Java. Another trick is to act as an administrator by installing that offline installer and acting as an administrator (choose ‘Run As Administrator' from the shortcut menu).
Most of the time, the tips listed here will work. Java can be a temperamental program, and often it's a quick fix.
