    Java problem

    I had been unable to get in to any of my https sites with google. I heard about a problem with java and I removed it from my hard drive and I now can get into most of them, but sometimes even those wont open. I am able to get to those sites using Internet explorer. Obviously there must be some debris from java in chrome, but even deleting all history files and cookies with in Google doesn't correct the problem. I have been unable to find anything on javas' site that is helpful. Any suggestions?

    Why do you think it's a Java problem? I don't think there's any real connection between Java and https (although Java can use https), and not many sites use Java for anything.

    Which version of Chrome?

    I might try to uninstall Chrome, then reinstall it. If somehow Java caused a problem this might solve it. As Bruce states, there aren't that many sites that use Java.

    You might also try a Malware scan, perhaps with MalwareBytes Anti-malware to ensure there is no malware causing your problem.

    BruceR; I am not sure that it has anything to do with java, but because of the warning last week about a java breach, and because when I removed java most of the problem sites cleared up.
    I did run both a virus check and a malware check and they came up empty. I was hoping not to remove chrome but I think that is all that is left to try.

    The Linux version of Chrome does include JRE, so I suspect you have damaged your Chrome installation. Try uninstalling and re-installing it.
