Hey, i just got a new computer, spec:

Amd athalon 3500+
1 gig ram
nvidia 6800 ultra

Now whenever i load up ANY java program the program automatically freezes up. I dont think it is at a complete stand still, just working at about 1/1000 of the speed it should be.

I heard about there may be conflict between nvidia drivers and java or something like that.

If any1 has any solutions id really appreciate your say.

Which operating system and which JDK version are you using?

Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.

Check Task Manager. When I start WSAD our corporate standard McAffee configuration uses 99% CPU for about 10 minutes. It does it again some times when I just save (compile) a file.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

nope, i start say limewire or a program that uses java, and immediately it freezes up. I dont have any anti virus yet, and my cpu stays -10% usage.

Any over ideas would be appreciated.

oh and by the way, my computer freezes only when i click on the box with java, when a different window is open things run fine, but the java box is in the background not loading up.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
