Java update fails & corrupts explorer and networking
The latest Java auto update fails to unzip core files correctly with a 25099 error. This seems to have the effect of disabling networking and the interenet and making win explorer problematic following the next reboot. Fortunately I had a recent win7 image as backup & so was able to restore it however trying the java update again results in the same problem. Java has updated previously many times without problems. I looked up the 25099 error and found a workaround which involves unistalling Java, deleting the directory files & downloading/installing Java. This worked fine after another image restore. I couldn't however find a reference to similar side effects of the Java update failure so wonder if anyone else has encountered it?
