Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hello. i just noticed this because i fired up minecraft and it was lagging, then i saw that my amd fx8320 was at 100% load. i closed down minecraft and this java app is still running. can someone give me information on what that is? (it fluctuates from 50% to 90% cpu load but is more on the 90% side) 


OH and also i dont pirate games (so it isnt that watchdogs mining thing linus was talking about) 

i do however dl torrents and software, however i havent done this in a while

Re-install Java. Make sure when you do, all Java files are deleted.


Plus, ensure that minecraft is deleted too, re-install that after Java.


EDIT: Make sure it's 64-Bit Java too.

Compatible with Windows 95

Shut it down and see if it re-appears. If it doesn't, Launch MC, shut MC down and see it is there.

i had a similar problem once.


my computer booted with only 1/4 cores (2 with hyper thredding). i don't know why my windows was set to start with only one core but i fixed it this way:


-open your start menu


-search for "msconfig"


-right click and open as administrator


-go to the "start" tab


-open "advanced options" (or something similar)


-look if the first box on the top left corner is checked


-uncheck everything if necessary

Restart all off the Programs on your computer if that doesn't work check if there is a Java update

Java, why so useless...

Because Java gets updates about every time I boot my computer. This is why we can't have nice things.
