Jeroen,

per the official way published by Oracle you only need to delete the file JavaAppletPlugin.plugin.

To do this:
- Open the Finder
- Select Applications in the left column (i think this is optional)
- Enter JavaAppletPlugin.plugin into the search field (top right)
- Make sure that the search is covering the whole Mac, not only the applications folder
- JavaAppletPlugin.plugin should be found
- Move JavaAppletPlugin.plugin into the Trash

Removing the JDK is described at the bottom of the following link:
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/webnotes/install/mac/mac-jdk.html

Hope that helps.
Joerg

btw.: With Java 8_51 i don't see the issues i had with 8_45 on my MBP

Hi Joerg,
Thanks. First part removing the plug in worked fine!

But I really don't know how to do this last bit to remove the JDK

Quote
To uninstall the JDK, you must have Administrator privileges and execute the remove command either as root or by using the sudo(8) tool.

Navigate to /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines and remove the directory whose name matches the following format:*


How do I execute the remove command etc. navigate to etc.

Sorry, feel really stupid, but I have no idea!?
thanks

Hi Jeroen,

I see the guide from Oracle is made for system administrators, rather then normal users.
No problem though. You can also navigate to the file and delete it using Finder again.

- Open Finder
- locate & left click on the internal disk (Macintosh HD ?) in the left column
- in the right window find the folder Library and open it (left double click it)
- find the folder Java and open it
- find the folder JavaVirtualMachines and open it

Now you can move the folder jdk1.xxxx.jdk to the trash.
(You'll might be asked to provide your password)

Cheers,
Joerg

Thanks Joerg,
That seems to have done the trick!! Phew!
I installed the _31 and did a quick check in PSX and at first glance everything is back to normal. I'll try my joystick and numpad later this week.

Glad I got it back to normal operations though.

Thanks for all your assistance, much appreciated!!
