I’ve no thought if a confluence of bugs and/or config challenges is vexing me, or some arcane malware is at work so will just delineate what is taking place and what I have performed (the java problem was touched on in another thread). Two systems associated, a Win7 x86 notebook and a Vista x86 desktop equally safeguarded by Kaspersky and RegRun, (the Vista technique was not long ago taken out of mothballs, so also bought a scan with Malwarebytes, ADWCleaner, and ESET online …just after updating Kaspersky and RegRun), a couple of adware entries taken out from Vista registry, in any other case all scans clean. Each units hardwired to Uverse/Arris NVG589 router.
– Tried using on the web activity on Vista desktop (java plan making use of it really is have client, not browser game) which experienced operate earlier on this technique, mistake messages current java (variation 8), diverse mistake messages. Was told to make certain all previous java taken off (this is finished quickly on the Gain7 system but apparently not in Vista) in Programs and Features found Java 5, Java 6, Java 7 update 4, and Java Runtime Module …but no java 8. Uninstalled 5, 6, and Runtime module with no problem Java 7 just gave me a popup, blank window with path to Popular Data files in title bar. Checked that route, no Java 7, but the java 8 folder is there searched system, nothing at all Java 7 anywhere searched registry and observed 5 cases, a few in uninstall places, a person in put in space, 1 in MRU (MRI?, something like that). Eradicated all, now no java at all in Programs and Capabilities, a java 8 folder in Widespread Files with no listing in Packages and Characteristics nor in registry. Tried sport once again, diverse mistake concept. Go to Java web page and check out to run take a look at, requires me to website page to download java uninstaller …what do I know, possibly uninstaller is also the check plan, so download and check out to operate it (if nothing else may well enable eliminate any java I disregarded, and can reinstall 8 if it will get eradicated). Double simply click and instantly get a popup “cannot hook up to Oracle.com” (not even more than enough time to hook up to everything) delete, download once more, attempt again, similar result disable firewall, identical final result. Open Firefox, go to Oracle.com, get a blank web page with Oracle logo in higher left spin all around to Get7 notebook, open Firefox, Oracle page opens usually. Possibly require to update Firefox on Vista system Help>About, click update button, promptly get little popup “Up-to-date”, practically nothing else (this is V27, notebook is functioning V67).
– The plot thickens, video game dev implies I attempt OpenJDK (also from Oracle). Deleted java 8 from Vista (then, out of curiosity, reinstalled and acquired a listing in Applications and Attributes this time, uninstalled that) went to openjdk website, couldn’t download, left simply click did very little, suitable click/conserve just wanted to down load html. Back to Win7 system, downloaded file with no difficulty, transferred to Vista on flashdrive, no set up just extract documents wherever and include path to windows atmosphere. Tried recreation all over again, nonetheless an additional mistake message, this time about not discovering libraries. (Lengthy submit about this to video game site, two months and no reaction, guess I’m on my possess …and I know totally very little about java everything I come across online for these mistake messages is geared for builders and fully around my head).
– Given that can not update Firefox on Vista program I come to a decision to put in Courageous there (it has changed Firefox on the laptop presently) go to Brave website, download installer and consider to run it – “obtain failed” down load once again, check out again, exact consequence. Spin all-around to notebook, go to Courageous internet site, simply click download button, get website page “ERR_Deal with_INVALID”. Go to a pair of “isitdown” internet sites, paste connection in them, they report web-site is up and working. Try out with and without VPN, transform DNS from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11, still instructed handle invalid. Did the com window little bit of DNS flush and IP reset, didn’t help.
So, to recap, Vista system will download Brave installer but installer simply cannot down load data files, Gain7 technique gets “tackle invalid” when attempting to down load exact same installer Vista system hundreds blank web page for Oracle, and simply cannot access something from java internet pages other than uninstaller, which complains it are unable to call Oracle Acquire7 connects to Oracle with no challenge and can obtain java or open up java documents. And I suspect my problems receiving java to function on the vista technique are someway tied up in this.
The only other oddity is in Firefox on the Vista process. I have extensive utilised the Flagfox plugin, when I fired up this procedure (following three many years) and opened Firefox, there was a tab for the Flagfox site notifying me it experienced been current …ahead of I could close the tab the web page was replaced by a Russian porn backlink (in accordance to Flagfox the server is in the Netherlands) NoScript blocks it so all I see is a white page with Cyrillic text. I can near this tab and all is well no new resource bars, no usurping my lookup motor, no redirects. But every time I open up Firefox, no subject what other tabs I have pinned or just still left open, this tab will be open.
I want to distinct the problems on the Vista desktop (get java doing work and Courageous put in), just nursing the laptop computer along until then (vid card on its last legs).
