    every time I turn on the computer I get a warning from java virtual machine launcher.
    It reads: Java virtural machine launcher
    cannot find main class- program will exit
    press ok and menu will exit.
    the computer works good, but once in a while will lock up when you try to open a program likre the e-mail or internet explorer.
    It will lock up tight, have to shut it down and restart to release the lock. I installed new virtual machine (5) and new java script tm(2) 1.4.0 and still get warning. how do I fix this warning and what is it not finding that should be there. I haven't deleted anything out of the computer. unless my grandson did and took something out. like a shared fileor something??? puzzle?? thank you ron

    Look in your startup programs for something calling this application.

    I don't believe it is native to windows and something loading at startup is calling it.

    start/run/type msconfig and press enter
    go to the startup tab, uncheck everything not necessary.

    Check your startup folder for anything loading from there and remove if not necessary.

    Reboot, do you still have the error

    These thinks were checked and I unchecked them:
    scheduling agent---mstask exe.
    swapnut-- c\progra~1\javasoft\jre\13~1.1.0\bin\javaw.exe

    swapnut must have been the one. the warning is not there anymore. I don't know what that is (swapnut) my grandson must have put something in there and deleted it and didn't finish the job. Had me confused as to what was causeing this warning. I knew I didn't do anything. grandson is 12yrs. old and thinks he knows all about computers. he said he didn't do anything. ha! ha!
    yhank you very much for the help. Ron
