uninstalling and reinstalling Java
Hello I am Adam and after reading about "couldn't initialize tubesock" I have come up with two solutions.
First Boot into safe mode with no networking. Then go to add/remove programs and try to delete it from there. Then re-start the computer in regular mode and download/install new version of JAVA.
Java download - http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp
Here is how to boot in safe mode
1- Restart the computer and immediately press F8 repeatedly (As soon as you hit the power button start with F8), You will see the Boot Menu.2- Choose "Safe Mode WITH OUT NETWORKING" and press ENTER3- Wait for windows to be completely loaded
If this didn't work try to do this...
PLEASE FIRST BOOKMARK (add to favorites) THIS PAGE SO YOU CAN COME BACK WITH ME AFTER THE RESTART, and click ACCEPT if the issue is solved!!
So to fix this lets run these two programs "hitman" and "malwarebytes" run them in normal mode 1st. If you can't do that then run them in safe mode. Here is the links and quick directions with steps. If you need help please respond back if this helps solve the issue please click Accept!!
