Windows 7 Java 64 Bit

Saturday, December 26, 2009 ·

Something that still causes a lot of trouble on many Windows 7 x64 machines is Java. Java is needed for all those cool web 2.0 applications, but it’s also a resource hog and is often causing a very high CPU load, therefore many people deactive it completely. Nonetheless, it’s an important download.
