I use countermail and recently was asked if I wanted to update to the lastest version of Java. Well I did and my logon keeps failing now. I'm on W8 and using explorer.

 

I already put down one computer this week. This is a fairly new one and I am pissed. I'm not good with computers, just numbers(beancounter).

 

Can someone help with simple suggestions without sending me through a bunch of steps?

 

Should I uninstall the reininstall CM?

 

Thank you.

Yes, I'd just reinstall the CM engine. I had a few minor issues after a Java update myself.

You shouldn't have to reinstall anything, other than what's called the "Countermail Engine", which is a Java applet I believe. Anyway, geek speak aside, are you accessing CM through their website? If so, then there shouldn't be a need to reinstall anything. Let me give Hooter a shout and bring  him in to help you. He's better at explaining this stuff than I am. I can do it, but can't teach it all that cogently.

I can't speak to the countermail issue, but one thing of which to be aware:

 

Watch the prompts when updating Java.  Do NOT let it install Norton or any other "antivirus" program - you'll need to un-check that box before initiating the install.  If you mistakenly allowed Norton to install, get Hooter to help you through the motions of uninstalling it (it's a nasty program that attaches itself to lots of things).  I've learned this the hard way by many times having to "clean" my Mother-in-Law's computer after she fell for the "need" to let Norton install.  My kids play lots of games that use Java and we are constantly updating; I'm always careful to watch for the little checkboxes that are conveniently checked for you so that things like Norton can be installed as a part of the update.

 

Use Microsoft Security Essentials for protecting your computer instead.  Especially if this is a newish computer, go ahead and download it.  Hooter can of course chime in if I am mistaken on any of this  :)  but I have picked up on a few geek-speak things over the years.

 

I even host a Minecraft server for my kids.  They think I'm just the coolest Mom ever - what they don't realize is that I am able to keep a watch on ALL of the chat that goes on while they are playing (and not!) HA!

 

Good luck, HB - hope life is treating you well!

Thanks tri gal, life is good computers suck! Sorry about my English.

 

I'm a bean counter but understand some computer prompts. I did not add in anything. It worked fine until I said update me. Thanks for the advice. I normally do not keep anything irreplaceable on the HD so maybe I'll start fro scratch. It worked fine until tonight.

 

Gots to get it to work so I can talk with my new friends at MT.

If your computer did create a restore point before the update, go back to that point.  

 

Agree with Explorer having one use - to install another browser.  I like Chrome, but worked with Firefox for a long time and still do when working on build/fixes to websites.

 

Hopefully the IT group at work can walk you through a restore process; if not check back in with me or Hooter.

 

Good luck!

I used to like Norton.  Now I hate 'em.  They are like a spider web inside the Windows Registry.  They attach to the kernel, stuff you have to surgically remove.  I run 3 networks.  One is a gubmint system w/150 desktops +/- over 5 sites, 4 counties.  We use TrendMicro Enterprise.  The other two are smaller and I use Viper only.

 

HB, I wish I could see your machine....gosh I don't love W8.  In countermail, under any of the menu bar items (menu bar across the top) is there a "detect/Repair" choice in any of the dropdown menus?  Frinstance, hit Help.  In the dropdown menu, look at choices.  If there is a repair choice, click it.

First & simplest thing comes to mind.  Second thing:

 

Just reinstall.  If it wants to uninstall it will do so.  I like simple.

Bluesman - I'm going to have to hit you up the next time I run into issues.  You seem to know your stuff!

This may have already been answered (forgive me if it has) but can you install Java on an iPad?
