I have a windows xp computer that I play an online game that requires Java Runtime(RuneScape). I believe that Java must be corrupt or something. Does anyone know how to reinstall it or have any other suggestions?

Thanks,
T-Man

This happens on my older, slower computer some times.

What is the spec of your computer? - Also, go to add/remove progs, remove javba runtime environment, then google java runtime environment, and re-install. Or, try clearing your cache on Java.

Here are the Specs.

Processor: AMD Athlon xp 2500+, mmx, 3DNow, ~1.8GHz
OS: Microsoft Windows Xp Home Edition
Chipset: GeForce4 MX 4000
Refresh Rate: 60 Hz
Memory: 512 MB

I tried to reinstall it but it still froze, and I do not know how to clear the cache.

Thanks,
T-Man

Start > Control Panel > (left pane) switch to classic view > Java > Delete Files...

Also, after doing that, open the update tab, and click "Update Now".

This will clear your cache completely, Runescape will take longer to load when you first load it after deleting these files. Also after running the update it should fix any bugs you may have in the current version, which could be causing the problem now.

~Good luck.
