My computer blue screened, stupid vertex 3 ssd causing issues.... anyways.
When i got back into Netbeans IDE 7.0.1, ItemListener was underlined red, symbol not found. When i tried to manually import java.awt.even.ItemListener, it did not have ItemListener as an option any more, and would just highlight the import statement red.
I uninstalled JDK, netbeans... i did a system restore to before the blue screen and it still didnt fix it.
Is there some where I can replace the awt file? I found awt.dll in C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_01\jre\bin and made sure it was replaced when I reinstalled.
