Internet Explorer Cannot load webpages – JRE 6u2 problem


This problem started after installing JavaStandardEdition 1 6 Development kit, with NetBeans.

IE started to crash or took too long to load webpages.

Sometimes it opens a blank page.

The problem was not in Internet Explorer but in java plugin code memory corruption.

The solution is uninstalling JRE 6u2 and downloading and installing another copy from the java.sun.com site.

IE7 Java Crash Problem: Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close


I received this message: Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. every time when visited a site with Java applets.

And buttons with “Send/Don’t Send error.”

In this case uninstalling Java Runtime does not help.

Uninstalling and then re-installing IE7 does not help too.

Even System Restore does not help.

The only method to resolve problem is looking in Objects folder:

Menu  Tools –> Internet Options –> Settings –> View Objects

If there is a  Oracle Jinitiator object, you have to remove it /Add/Remove programs./

Jinitiator is a Java Virtual Machine made by Oracle Corporation. It uses  plugin or an activex control.

Another method is to uninstall  Windows Live Assistant.
