  1. Which meant, I probably could of extracted the reg entry in the Laptop myself. I did have to re-name the 2 folders JRE was placed in slightly. I'm still leaning to the fact the Laptop already had a JRE folder (another version) which in itself 'helped' the 'update 8' version to find it's way.
  2. Never thought about Safe Mode, I haven't had to use that for probably a decade or so. No security software, virus or otherwise running there, since it's rarely used. The reason was it would be far more convenient to use that then the larger Laptop. (Now, this is why the post in more than 1 forum ) BTW; did you compile that reg file yourself or copy that from your test install registry?
  3. Yes , it did, at least the program 'sees' Java. Ok, question; What (in the o/s) would of stopped JRE from installing properly, specifically, unpacking the entire package which apparently included the missing registry file entry? I went to the laptop that didn't have the problem and found 2 other Java versions listed in the Registry, if that may of been a reason it worked there. There were no Java entries in the Notebook.
  4. That's what I've been saying, either that and/or some dll's or similar that need to be spread around the O'S (as usual) so they can work with the java, the program and M$'s C++ 2008 the other bloated wonder this poorly written Televes program needs to work. I'm a firm believer for more than than just a '2nd opinion'. Ill see if any of this works.
  5. There is only one copy in the active partition and it's in the ASuite program folder.
  6. I extracted the Java 7 file twice, placed it in "Program Folders", then re-installed 'ASuite', moved the 'renamed 'JRE' folder inside that program folder. All I get now is ASuite needs JRE 1.7.0 as opposed to the error message that JRE couldn't be found or something about registry corruption (I don't recall the exact wording).
  7. Neither of those worked. Let me ask this, what in the O/S would cause a non M$ program not to install properly as in not fully extracting? That basically seems to be the problem.
  8. I try not to do that. Sorry about that, I don't know why/how that happened, I didn't realize I had a thread here. My bad.
  9. I updated my OP to reflect the current situation arrived by additional testing.
  10. FWIW, none of those versions I tried worked. They 'install' but the installation is corrupt with a single .exe file & a "core.zip" folder that doesn't get extracted. Even after I manually extract it, the program still complaints about a corrupted install. I tried 4 or 5 different versions, they basically all do the same thing. If you want all the (unnecessary) details of the situation (that shouldn't of mattered in the 1st place); That was a Wintell 'Atom" Gateway Notebook. I'll try my AMD HP 'Laptop' and see if that is any different (still XP Pro) that I've had form
  11. What's flash have to do with JRE? This program is specific of what it needs. Yes, 45 pages is "long". Too long.
  12. I have a specific application that controls an external device (not PC related) that needs Java RE v1.7 to work. Apparently between Oracle & M$, compatibility/support seems to be a issue with XP probably making matters worse. Oracle calls this v1.7, "7" adding to the confusion. Initially, in my older Wintel Gateway Notebook this did not install properly. I did some further testing. I tried installing this in my somewhat newer AMD based HP ProBook and it installed/extracted properly. What I did this time was to install JRE first, then the devices program. Then I went back t
  13. I did a fast search, edited my post.
  14. Not according to this (thou it's almost 3 years old); https://www.howtogeek.com/335712/update-why-you-shouldnt-use-waterfox-pale-moon-or-basilisk/
  15. I'm running FF v56. I also have V70 due to my POS bank making changes not allowing me to log into their site. I get some "not available" message BS. Craigslist works, but I don't see the thumbnails of the items on the pages with the ads for the items for sale. Also, I discovered ResellerRattings.com doesn't work at all. I only get a completely blank page when I navigate there (no log in). The same goes for Seamonkey v249 and Palemoon v28. Any idea on what the deal is with that?? I would move to v70 completely, but I hate the 'Tab bar" being above the page. The method to move it
  16. You can always just stop using it and revert back. Juts like there are other program software choices, there are other O/S choices. AKA; free & Open Source.
  17. I've yet to hear anything good about 'Edge' ; Maybe that is the reason they want to 'infect' W7 with it to get users to upgrade, or maybe I should say downgrade back to XP.
  18. jaclaz; That link in your post is dead.
  19. BTW; I found that using ResourceHacker (or similar) by choosing "Restart" for explorer.exe, under Processes, that will break the hold (or hook) that prevents the change. So far it's worked more than once. There are also shortcuts that can be created, attached to a script to do similar, thou I haven't tried those yet.
  20. I made a error with SM, that does have PP, PM v28 only goes directly to a print dialog pop-up. What version PM do you have and where did you get it? I have no idea what/who that guy is. I got both browsers from the respective websites. https://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/ https://www.palemoon.org/download.shtml .
  21. Gotta love the topic title! What more needs to be said? That's what happens when you give the job to a bunch of post teenagers that don't know the difference between a real computer and a toy id*** phone.
  22. I have tried SeaMonkey & Pale Moon. Both are missing critical features that FF v56 has, namely print preview (w/PM), 'Simplify page" (w/both) and/or the lack of navigation button add-ons . BUT, they are superior to FF with far less overhead taxing (loading down) the O/S with multiple processes running, even with setting a limit to one process. There are still three running! This is a screen shot from ProcessHacker after less than 1 minute after starting FF with only one page open (which is just a login for a stock market trading site).

  23. No, I corrected that previous post. I've tried to find some kind of pattern. It seems, folders with .exe's are the prime target. I can open folders with images (.jpg, .png etc), then close and there is no issue re-naming. Folders that have programs in (not installed, just original backups), even just opening, then closing will cause the lockup. BUT, not always. I also removed Panda with those 2 loaded programs that I couldn't stop (by their design). Using MS Config, I unchecked all of my installed programs (non MS), but that made no difference. To be clear, none of this has to do wit
