Hi there,

The title is pretty self explanatory I guess. I had this problem previously quite a while back but managed to sort it out. However, yesterday it occurred again after an update. I uninstalled the older version and tried again but still it didnt work. Next, I uninstalled the current version and tried downloading it again from the Java website, however again there has been no effect.

I have found that the error persists both on Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer (though i only really use FF). Any help on this would be much appreciated as I have tried many different things now but to no avail.

Try changing your Windows Virtual Memory (paging file size) to "System Managed" then click "Set" & reboot.

If that doesn't do the trick, you may actually have two versions of JRE installed (or the old version has left it's program folder behind in C:\Program Files even though you may have uninstalled it via "Add/Remove Programs). Check for the existence of an older version and remove it, because when you install a newer version the older version isn't touched in case you need to keep it for compatibility reasons. This is seldom necessary.
Look in "Add/Remove Programs" for two versions listed -- remove older one. Then check "C:/Program Files\Java" and if necessary delete the sub-folder of the older version. It will be in a sub-folder of "Java" with the version number as the sub-folder name similar to this:

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.xxxxx
