My java plug in is constantly crashing when i am playing games, in particular Runescape. It gives no error message. Sometimes the screen freezes, sometimes turns all black or all white. I have tried updating to the most current version, Java 6 update 17. I have tried using firefox, chrome, i.e.(32 and 64 bit), and even the standalone application. It makes no difference. The crashes become more frequent as I continue playing. (5 minutes when i start, then gets as bad as 30 sec.)
If I am playing in the standalone application, my browser frequently crashes along with the game.
75% of the time a refresh will fix this problem for a few minutes, but sometimes i need to restart the browser.
One other thing, in the bottom right corner of my taskbar, it will show multiple java icons running. If i hover over them with my mouse, all but one dissappears.
My specs are: Windows 7 professional 64 bit 6.01.7600. AMD dual core 3.0 processor, 2GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT video card.
