    Unhappy Problem with starting up Java

    Greetings,

    I'm not sure if I'm posting this at the right place, but I've had a problem with Java for a long time now and I've decided to ask about it on these forums. I've searched before I made this thread.

    When I click on a program which makes use of Java it won't start up immediately. I have to wait a long time (1 to 3 hours) before it suddenly starts up.

    I've analyzed a bit what's going on with the processes and what I noticed is that javaw.exe starts with a low memory (around 40mb) and slowly rises with a rate of 8kb/s (sometimes more). When it hits a certain amount of memory the program I clicked on hours ago suddenly pops up.

    This is a pretty big problem because I use Eclipse for my school projects and since that makes use of javaw.exe I have to wait hours before I can code.

    When the programs begin to start up I can open other Java related programs with ease and usually in less than 5 seconds. This also affects Java apps on the web.

    Anyone else familiar with this problem? If you need more information feel free to ask. This laptop has 6gb memory.

    Thanks in advance!



    EDIT: I've reinstalled Java a lot of times.

    Where did you get this program? How do you know when it starts up? What does "start up" mean?
    If the program was computing PI to 100000000000 places before giving a report, it could be quite for a while before printing out a message.

    Hey, with program I mean any program which makes use of the Java process (javaw.exe in this case) like Eclipse. Also, with starting up I mean the window of the program showing up.

    Sorry if I haven't been very clear about my problem, English isn't my native language.

    Where did you get this program that takes so long before it shows a window? What does it do?

    @Norm: I think the problem is that *any* java program is taking forever to start.

    The OP sounds like a very patient person. 20 seconds is too long for me.

    My attention span is less than 20 seconds; after such a long period of time I'd have forgotten that I tried to start up that program ;-)

    kind regards,
