Java won't work!
Long story short: I had downloaded free trial Regcure. It came with something called "Websense" which I have learned is web filitering software. When I learned that the free trial version of Regcure only scanned but did not fix errors I uninstalled it.
fast forward...I then noticed that websites, including yahoo Mail were not loading java, and were basically strange looking and hard to use because java was not running. In researching the problem on the web, one person said that the problem could be Websense, not allowing java to load. I then remembered that Websense had been downloaded with Regcure. So I am assuming that Websense is causing my probelm with java. I reinstalled JRE 6u5 three times and it still didnt help.
When I reboot my computer, I see a Websense window flash on and off my desktop in about the blink of an eye. So even though I uninstalled Regcure, I cannot get rid of Websense. I tried to find it by searching files on my hardrive, or looking at the startup programs using Msconfig. Nothing shows up. There are 2 blank lines in my MsConfig and Im wondering if this is Websense running in stealth on my computer. Can someone help me get rid of this freaking program that I never wanted in the first place?? Thanks for any help!
