Every time I launch my laptop I get the following Java Virtual Machine Launcher error: could not find the main class - program will exit. I don't know what this means but could someone tell me how I go about fixing this problem?

What do you mena with "launch my desktop"?
Starting your OS?
If so, then there is an entry in you Autostart or registry (\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\run) wich launches a Java application, but the class has no main class.
Try to find that entry.

Thanks for your response. I have a Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop running Windows 98 SE. It is when I boot my pc that I get the "Java Virtual Machine Launcher" error which reads: "Could not find the main class. Program will exit". Does this make more sense to you?

Sharon, I was wondering if you ever got a solution to your problem. I am having the same type of difficulty. When I initially go onto my system, I get 2 error messages, 1 is a Rundll error and then when I hit the "X" to get it off my screen the java virtual machine launcher error appears, saying could not be found.

If you got a solution, I would be most greatful.
Thank you

Melinda

The other error messages are also dll errors.

Or it is spyware or a windows service.

Let
Right click on "My Computer" and "Manage System"
Choose "Services and Applications\Services".
Look for a Service wich type is Auto; bt wich is not lanched. Try to launch it.
If it produces the error you see everytime, this is the program you're looking for.


This are 2 regsitry keys, where you could find the program.
hkey_local_machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Run
hkey_current_user\So ftware\Microsoft\Windows\Run



If you have dll errors, normally your java installation is messed up, maybe the javva dll's are not in the system dll path.

Try to reinstall the newest java version (1.4.2_04b5 I think, not the 1.5 beta).



If all this didn't help, it probalby is a spyware.
Try to download the tool ad-aware (from lavasoft), ths should remove allmost every spyware.

I was also having the same Virtual Machine Launcher problem. When I had Norton, is would show up as a trojan horse, but it could never find it. When I unstalled Norton it showed up as Virtual Machine Launcher. I was out looking the other night for a solution to this problem and ran across your article. Lavasoft solved my problem. Thanks for your help.

Same as above.

Try to find out wich program requests the "main server" (what the heck is a main server anyway?).

I suspect it just means it couldn't find the main() entry point.

If any of you can remember what you downloaded and installed right before you got this problem, that might lead you to the source of the problem in the first place. Ad-aware seems to be a good way of cleaning it up. When Ad-aware cleans up, does it tell you what it cleaned up and perhaps where it came from?

It does tell you what spyware it found, then you can choose if it should delete the files, registry entries, ... or not.

It can't find out where they came from.

Matthias you rock! You're my hero!! Woohoo!!
Admittedly, I don't know anything too technical about computers.
Searched the net trying to figure out what my "Virtual Machine Launcher could not find main class" error could possibly be on my 9 day old Dell, then found this site. Thank goodness.
Tried the 'manage system' approach and couldn't find it. Ran lavasoft ad-ware as you suggested and it worked, problem soloved!
Some goofy horoscope things were in there, don't know how or why they got there, but they're gone now!!
Thank you soooo much Matthias!!
