  22. Ron Kutch says:

    THANK YOU! I stared at the "Official How to Fix Java" website, brought to you by our friends at Oracle, for an hour. (With subtitles in Chinese) I think it said the same thing, but since I am not a Java programmer, I really don't know. I'm just a guy trying to do a job, and the !@#$ Java has a hairball. You saved my bacon, thank you.
