Java Applets not loading in Windows 8

Harley Frank asked on

Original Title: Java 7 Update 9 Windows 8 ClassNotFoundException



I have Windows 8 for both my laptop and my desktop and they both won't load any Java applets. I don't know what is going on here. Nothing Java related works and I have been asking around and nobody seems to know why its not working.

I got this mail from Kaspersky and this work out for me



Hello ,

This is a known issue with java, Win8 and Kaspersky. We are working on an automated fix, but for now please try this workaround:
Open Kaspersky 2013
Click on Settings
Click on Application control
Click on Applications
Look for Oracle America (this is the java and it should be trusted already)
Open each item in that folder using double click
Under the tab Exclusions check all 5 checkbox and click OK

Kindly reply to this message if you need further assistance.

Best regards,
Nathan J

Hey Guys!

I have the solution to my problem. Turns out that how Windows 8 was designed there had to be drastic changes to anti-virus programs. You need protection on the desktop as well as using the Metro interface. However, there is a drawback. Since apps can be made using visual script or java script and a few others, anything could be considered malicious.


So most anti-virus programs have coding that puts a barrier on coding if you know where I'm getting at. My problem is that Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 is blocking any form of JavaScript from loading its applets. I have contacted Kaspersky and they confirmed this.
