System Freeze/Slow-down using Java
I've been using a Java Applet on my notebook, but the other night I was at home without it. So I decided to run it on my desktop instead.
When I tried to run the installer for the Applet, my system slowed to a massive crawl. The problem seemed to big to be installer-specific, so I loaded up my E-banking, which uses Java. This didn't just slow my system to a crawl, it down-right froze it, requiring a hard reboot. In short, using Java will freeze or slow down my system massively.
Any of the clever minds here who might have a solution? I've tried the following myself:
1) Installing latest drivers for my Radeon 4870 video card
2) Uninstall Java, re-install Java
3) Disable Windows Firewall
None of this has worked.
