There isn't really a problem with java itself because some web apps that use them still work. I've just been trying to open games that run on java and open an applet, the new window pops up and then they crash my web browser while loading. I did a short search online and it said to clear temporary internet files or reinstall java. I've performed an update and followed the steps for virus/spyware, including running ATF cleaner. I messed with the internet options for java by checking and unchecking different check boxes. When java is disabled, the page loads and IE asks me to download java, while firefox just loads an empty page. When it is enabled, no matter what internet settings I have, it closes all my browser windows after a second or two of loading. I don't know what else to try.

Close IE.
Go Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools, and click on Internet Explorer (no add-ons). Same thing?

Close Firefox. Go Start>All Programs>Mozilla Firefox, click on Mozilla Firefox (safe mode). Same thing?

I tried reinstalling it, then noticed that all the old versions of java were still there. Getting rid of those fixed it. Thank you for your responses :)
