Hi mevatt,

 

I see three possibilities, (one of) your installed Java program(s) is an old version and needs to be updated, that you have an unwanted or malicious program that tries to trick you into downloading another malicious program, or visit web pages that tries to trick you into downloading a malicious program.

 

In the first case, uninstall all Java versions that you have in the computer, see https://www.java.com/en/download/help/uninstall_java.xml, restart the computer and install the latest version (if you really need to have Java) from https://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp.

 

In the second case, please follow the instructions in the topic Read This Before You Post! and I will move your topic to the forum Help with Stubborn Infections.

Latest version of Java is Release 7 Update 71. You can find it on this link http://www.java.com/en/ . I suggest you save this link as Java is updated every 3 months. But if you don't need it uninstall any old versions as Cecilia suggested.

Hi Peter,

 

There are two "latest" Java, Update 71 for Java version 7 and Update 25 for Java version 8.

Oracle will stop updating version 7 in April 2015 and it's important to switch from version 7 to 8 before that date.

The first thing I did was install Java 8 Update 25. When that didn't help, I installed Ad-Aware. Finally, I uninstalled Chrome by killing related processes in Task Manager and something called CouponCrazy (can't recall the exact name). Then I downloaded Mozilla Firefox and things are going smoothly. Eventually, I'd like to reinstall Chrome since I use it when designing websites.

Good that you have the latest Java version. Have you checked that you don't have any old versions in Control Panel's list of installed programs?

 

CouponCrazy is probably adware. Do you want me to check if there are left-overs of it or other adware, or maybe you only want suggestions of programs that you can use yourself?

I only have one version of Java in Control Panel's list of installed programs. Looks like the only thing left is Coupons Printer for Windows from coupons.com, inc. Just googled it. Looks like I should unistall it as well.

Cecilia, I am aware of the Release 8 Update 25 but the application I use for my diabetes reading have not updated to that version yet. ;)
