Is Your Computer Slow? | Are You Having Problems Updating Java?
A few weeks ago I had a virus problem so I downloaded an updated version of Norton 360 to cure the virus. My desktop computer had also been running slow. It's almost 3 years old and I started looking into a new computer.
I do a lot of webinars on the GoToWebinar platform. Recently when I went to sign on it kept prompting me to update JAVA. I was not able to get the updated download completed.
I thought the problem may have been caused by the new Norton install so I decided to uninstall JAVA on the computer and start with a fresh install. I ran into a problem. The Windows uninstall program wouldn't let me uninstall JAVA.
So I went to that secret site known as Google and searched for uninstall software. After looking at several options I decided to try IObit Uninstaller 2. It got good reviews and best of all it was FREE.
The IObit Uninstaller 2 not only uninstalled JAVA but it also went deep into the bowels of my computer and uninstalled a lot of trash associated with JAVA that had build up over the years. To be on the safe side I shut down the computer and rebooted it.
After rebooting I deleted the previous version of JAVA in my download folder and installed a fresh copy of JAVA. The install went smoothly with no problems. Again, to be on the safe side I shut down the computer and rebooted it.
Now here's where the surprise came in. All of a sudden the computer was running fast again. It seems all the trash from the old versions of JAVA had been slowing it down. The thought of buying a new computer went out the window.
And, today I went to a webinar on GoToWebinar. I had no problems getting signed in.
I repeated the above steps with my laptop and had the same results.
So, if your computers been running slow and/or your having problems with JAVA see if this cure will work for you.
