Java.exe using 100% cpu
Have been having a problem with java.exe taking up 100% cpu usage. I first noticed this when I downloaded the latest version of OpenOffice (2.4).

Upon clicking on 'Tools' >> 'Options' in OpenOffice and selecting 'Java' my system froze. I opened process explorer, which took a long time to open, and killed java.exe, which again took quite a long time to kill. Upon killing java.exe another java.exe opened and I had to kill it also. After doing this my system returned to normal.

I then went to the java folder in program files and clicked directly on java.exe. A command prompt window opened with a bunch of text and process explorer showed java.exe using 100% cpu. I again killed java.exe. At first I thought it was a problem with OpenOffice but now know it is a problem with java.exe itself.

I shut down everything except the basics to keep Windows running (in case the problem was due to firewall or the like) but java.exe continued to use 100% cpu.

Have included an HJT logfile just in case something listed in the file could be causing the problem. Figured I'd start here and if my system is clean, will post in another forum.

Java.exe using 100% cpu
Sorry, didn't mean to see if my system was clean, just possibly something showing up in my hjt logfile that may be causing a conflict with java.

Not trying to hurry anyone to check my log. Know your all very busy.
