its the same thing as java runtime environment and looks like you have the latest JRE installed.
Tell me one thing, when your browser ( or PC) freezes if you open/visit java enabled website do you see a cup/plate in your taskbar ???
If no please wait for a second or two, sometimes you may want to wait 30 secs.
Well if it still dont work you may like to check if its the content you are trying to visit causing the problem or the JRE. Try visit some other websites like yahoo games or something and see if it still happpens.
You said "browsers", this means you are using many browsers, that means its likely that the problem is caused by JRE not website.
Sometimes if you are running out of memory this problem can occur, make sure you have some RAM available, try closing unwanted programs and removing few unwanted processes from taskbar (only those processes that you know off ).
Correct me if i am wrong, but if still the problem persists, Try reinstalling it, make sure you clean all logs or directories left behind after uninstall.
The latest update wroks for me fine and i have same config as yours.
If the problem is not solved, we will test if its the JRE is causing the problem or not by another mean.
