  • Question

  • Hello,

    My OS is: Windows XP Service Pack 3. Dell Inspiron 6000. Purchased in 2006.

    My question is as follows: My old anti-virus software expired and when I installed a new one  it listed files that had been infected with a virus and recommended immediate deletion of those files which I did (I think some of those deleted files included Windows Program files as well). Since then, updating Java had become unsuccessful and I keep getting the message "Warning - Error-  Java(TM) Update:   bin\awt.dll:  Old File not found...". The OS came pre-installed and I don't have an OS cd and the guarantee period has expired.  Please what do I do to to resolve the problem and be able to update Java successfully?. Many thanks.
