Error 7 out of memory continued II


Recommended Posts

So i was told to post my issue here by an elite member. I had the following topics (and was told each time to start a new one) in order from oldest to newest,




So the short of it is malwarebytes previously would stop scanning after ~10 seconds and say error 7 out of memory. A huge list of scans later (documented in the above links) i was told to repair windows which i just recently did. It took me a while to do it and the topic was closed. After repairing windows and updating windows to current sp's and updates i am able to scan with malwarebytes normally. I also reinstalled all the dotnet junk that i need. I installed each dotnet separately. Everything seems good but windows keeps failing the dotnet 1.0 SP3 update.

I can not install java which is the problem im currently working on. It was uninstalled with JavaRa but it must have missed some.

When i try to install java with either the online and offline installers it asks "This software has already been installed on your computer. Would you like to reinstall it?" If i click no installer ends if i click yes it says preparing to remove. It then pops up a windows installer window and says "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click ok to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'jre1.6.0_17-c.msi' in the box below."

I tried ok and also searched my computer for jre1.6.0_17-c.msi and its not there. I searched other xp computers i have and didnt find jre1.6.0_17-c.msi on them either.

I searched jre1.6.0_17-c.msi but google didnt find much. I found some posts saying to manually delete java from the reg. which i tried. I also searched and deleted "jre1.6.0_17-c.msi" in registry. It still thinks java is installed even though it isnt. I saved a restore point before i did anything.

Any idea what to do or where to start?

Hi -

First try a Check Disk scan - Copy and paste this code into Run Box (or press Windows Logo key + R) - Close all other programs first - This will reboot and run a full 5 stage check on your system - It will take about 30-45 mins on average , depending on your system -


Then insert your XP CD and run a SFC Scannow check -

Go Start > Run . as above , type in or copy / paste:

sfc /scannow

Click OK .

Have Windows CD handy .

If System File Checker (sfc) will find any errors, it may ask you for the CD.

Next try to install (or reinstall) Microsoft Visual Basic control from Here -

Thank you -

Ok, i ran checkdisc on c and d (d is where windows is on this computer) i also ran the sfc which showed a progress bar then disappeared when it was done so i assume its ok... I also installed the visual basic control (it said it updated to 6.0 iirc) which went fine. I restarted and it is still popping up the same its installed error as it was when i try to install java.

Just noticed this, if i look in add/remove programs AND check show updates it shows a Java 6 update 21. When i click on remove it asks for the same msi file.

When i click on properties in add/remove under the java update it says

Publisher Sun Microsystems, INC.

Version 6.0.210

Contact http://java.com

Support information http://java.com

Readme D:\Program Files\Java\jre6\README.txt (which is not there, the whole java file on D: is gone)

Product updates http://java.sun.com

Just found this n figured i'd mention it.

Well we can attempt to help you resolve the issues but I'm going to move your post to the PC Help forum where it really belongs.

For the Java issue you can see the post here where we did a lot of things and something was always left over causing Java an issue installing.

The user replied back that they tried out Revo Uninstaller Pro and it was able to remove the bad entries and then the Java installation worked

I cannot promise you'll have the same good results but you could try it and let us know.

As for the .NET that is a very complex issue and many posts on the Web with users having issues with it. I would first try to manually download the updater for it and then run it instead of the one from Windows Update. Try downloading and running this: Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 Service Pack 3

Please review the following posting and see if it provides any assistance in correcting issues with the .NET Framework if the manual update does not work.

I dl'd revo uninstaller and tried to uninstall the java update. It tries to find the .msi too and fails. Uninstall fails. The cleanup afterwards scans for java keys. It found 1524 items...I selected to remove them all. When i try to install java [java setup window] it says "This software has already been installed on your computer. Would you like to reinstall it?" Y/N? I click yes then it says [windows installer window] "This action is only valid for products that are currently installed." Theres only OK. It loops back to the its already installed window once.

Hi -

Is there any list of Java remaining in the Add/Remove area now -

If not go to Start > Search > at the bottom click on 'Click here to use Search Companion (it looks like a small dog) -

Click on All Files and Folders > In the top line Type Java - This will search your system for any traces of the Java program -

Delete any that are found - Then post back with any results -

Thank You -


Do not be too specific with the search - Just look for Java -

Ok, i was able to reinstall java with 2 things. First I uninstalled Java with Revo uninstaller. I removed all keys in the registry that revo uninstaller found, it was like 1500+. Then i found some instructions which im going to copy here in case that page goes away to maybe help someone else with this.

These arent my instructions, they are copied from http://www.geekpolice.net/software-f6/jave...g-t23784-15.htm

Please do everything listed here in the same sequence so follow the instructions carefully.

Because the registry is the heart of windows. First, we need to backup your registry:

Please go to Start > Run

Paste in the following line:

regedit /e c:\registrybackup.reg

Click OK.

It won't appear to be doing anything, that's normal.

Your mouse pointer may turn to an hour glass for a minute.

Please continue when it no longer has the hour glass.


Copy everything inside the Code box below and paste it into notepad. Go up to "File > Save As", click the drop-down box to change the "Save As Type" to "All Files". Save it as FixmeJava.bat on your desktop.


reg query hklm\software\classes\installer\products /f "java 6" /s | find "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" > deljava.txt

for /f "tokens=* delims= " %%a in (deljava.txt) do reg delete %%a /f

del deljava.txt

reg delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment" /f

reg delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\wow6432node\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment" /f

Locate FixmeJava.bat file on your Desktop and double-click on it

A DOS box should open and close quickly, this is normal.

Restart your PC. Then from your desktop double-click on Offline Java to install the newest version.

So those 2 things combined worked. No idea what the .bat does but it got it so i can install java without issue.

The dotnet 1.0 sp3 must have installed on its own one of the times my computer restarted because its installed. I think im all set. Im gonna try to test everything and make sure its all good.

Thanks everyone for your help!!!

Hi -

If you have clean A/Virus scans and fully updated Malwarebytes Quick Scans that show "no problems" then you should be OK -

The items in Post #2 above , should have checked your general system and a fresh/clean A/V and MBAM scan means no problems -

Update version 4786 is current (at this time) for Malwarebytes -

Thank You for visiting -

We have no way to know the status of your system if it's clean or not. You asked for help with fixing .NET and JAVA which you now say are both set.

Try the following offline AV scan.

It can take several hours, so please be patient and allow it to run it's full course.

Establish an internet connection & perform an online scan with Firefox or Internet Explorer at Kaspersky Online Scanner


To optimize scanning time and produce a more sensible report for review:

  • Close any open programs
  • Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan.

Click Accept, when prompted to download and install the program files and database of malware definitions.

  • Click Run at the Security prompt.
  • The program will then begin downloading and installing and will also update the database.
  • Please be patient as this can take several minutes.
  • Once the update is complete, click on My Computer under the green Scan bar to the left to start the scan.
  • Once the scan is complete, it will display if your system has been infected. It does not provide an option to clean/disinfect. We only require a report from it.
  • Do NOT be alarmed by what you see in the report. Many of the finds have likely been quarantined.
  • Click View scan report at the bottom.
  • Click the Save Report As... button.
  • Click the Save as Text button to save the file to your desktop so that you may post it in your next reply.
