Default Random "could not create the Java Virtual Machine" error messages.

Every so often my system throws a 'could not create the Java Virtual Machine' message, usually when I'm not doing anything on the computer. I try to ctrl+alt+delete to see if I can find anymore info on it, but as soon as I touch the keyboard or move the mouse, the message closes. But I was able to see the error was coming from a javaw.exe that starts when the error comes up. Also it should be noted that I'm NOT running any java based programs, although the newest JDK is installed on my system. I really can't figure this out.

Anyone have an idea of what the problem could be?

Default Re: Random "could not create the Java Virtual Machine" error messages.

Looks like java isn't installed correctly and something wants to run a java application. My question is what do you have that is trying to run a java application at random times and without you doing anything? You have 2 programs running that should head off any funny business, but it still remains that you need to find out what java program is trying to run (Keep in mind it dosn't need to be web related to be java. Java is simply another platform to write code in and you can write normal full fledged programs using java).

Have you had a look in Event Viewer? There might be something in there that gives you more of a clue as to what's happening.

Default Re: Random "could not create the Java Virtual Machine" error messages.

I've reinstalled the newest JDK before and the problem still persists. I know what programs installed on my system are java based, and I only have one installed, and the error comes up regardless if it is running or not. I've disabled any java plugins in IE and firefox, and also the auto update feature. I just can't figure out what is trying to run the JVM, and why it is failing, since the java program I have runs fine. A full virus scan returned nothing.

And I still really want to know why the error window closes when I move the mouse or make any attempt to find out what it is, that seems fishy to me. But all my scans come back with nothing, and nothing that I don't recognize is running in taskmanager/services/startup, I'm quite familliar with everything that is supposed to be running.

hmm, the error window closing on its own makes me think its not a real error window.

You have UAC enabled right? So programs arn't starting by themselves?

Nothing in event manager.

Set UAC to max, no warnings before the error.

Still stumped...

If I watch task manager, a javaw.exe starts just for the error, and terminates when the window disappears.

Look at event viewer again and sort by source and see if anything listed under java, just a shot. or rename software entry in both registry settings current user\software and local machine software

I know what it is in my instance, and I think it may be related to yours too. I am getting this on my test box at work and my computer at home. Both have Digsby. I opened process explorer and watched until I saw javaw.exe pop up and the message appear. Javaw.exe pops up under the aspell.exe process for digsby. That is the only program that I have on both machines. I suspect its your issue too. So this appears to be a bug with digsby. I am contacting them about it now.. Just thought I would pass this along as I found this thread when I googled for the message..

I have let the Digsby team know about this. Also to note that I can reliably reproduce this issue. Could you for me as well to confirm my findings?

Thanks,
Chris

Okay I think I know what it is. I think its the Research Module. If you go to preferences under Digsby, and click on the Research Module tab on the bottom. After being idle for 5 minutes this module starts. I am fairly certain this is the cause for the error....

And Digsby just responded to me already. They identified the issue, and will be adding the fix in the next patch. They said for now to disable the research module... Hope this resolves your issue as well djc5166

Have a good day.

Oh and most programs nowadays are java based. Just fyi. Digsby is completely coded in Java. Well most programs are coded in java, or .net or both...
