When I open any kind of on my computer, it gives me the error : No compatible version of Java 1.5+ is available.
There is an option in the message box to close the warning and also one to open Java Preferences. When you open Java Preferences, it again gives the same error.
I am running: Mac OS X 10.6.8 on a 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Mac Book Pro
After searching the web and contacting apple, I was told to update Java to the latest version. I downloaded the 10.6 update 9 installer and at the end of the installation, it gave an error saying that an unexpected error had occurred.
Yes I have tried restarting my computer many a time.
I also tried going back 4 days via Time Machine back to the time when Java worked.
My disk drive on my computer is dead and so I cant revert to original Snow Leopard.
Maybe uninstalling java completely and reinstalling it might work? If so, how do I do it and where do I get the installer?
Please, if you would not mind, give me a hand.
I can't live without Java!
