Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling both the browser and Java?
Yes Postmaster, wasted a whole day on this. With the new Chrome 42, it will not allow Java to be loaded. If you go back to an earlier Chrome, (as Jerry suggested) it automatically updates to the new version, so your'e shot.
There is a large debate right now, on Google's attempt at doing the right thing for safety and leaving those of us with Java apps, left short. Looks like I'll trade some security, for the benefit of a tiny program, that I use for Album pages.
It looks like it may still be possible to run Java in Chrome 42, but the workaround will likely be removed by end-of-year.
Enabling NPAPI in Chrome Version 42 and later As of Chrome Version 42, an additional configuration step is required to continue using NPAPI plugins.
In your URL bar, enter: chrome://flags/#enable-npapi Click the Enable link for the Enable NPAPI configuration option. Click the Relaunch button that now appears at the bottom of the configuration page.
I have a similar problem with Chrome and Java -- my credit union's scan deposit function requires Java to operate. I use Chrome for everyday activity and switch to Firefox when I want to deposit a check.
And in regard to one of your subsequent questions, you can use the Ghostery plug-in with Firefox.

Rodney I did not suggest anything, I just got here
I am not getting any Java problems, yet. Anyways, I did find this site: www.donnaforex.com/index.php?topic=14819.0 Once at the site find the word source: and click on the link Having trouble accessing Java using Google Chrome? Here is the fix for the problem (Note: I had to do it this way since the final link did not work with the insert link)
The trouble I am having is when I have to read a PDF in Chrome. I get a Plug-In not supported error for the PDF Reader. I have to check for a procedure to fix that one.
As I said in another post, GOOGLE Chrome is shooting themselves in the foot with the latest go around of changes. I guess I am going to have to leave the CHROME world and go to FireFox, which I am not too thrilled about. Chrome has a few plug-ins that I like.

I was referring to an earlier post of yours re Java. (It may have been a personal email)
Sit Rep Update. Back with Chrome 1 . After new version of Chrome installed, computer went into meltdown I could not access a program (Java) which I had used for years "svchost.exe" was in overdrive, I had CPU usage at 99% computer was slow, and I had a permanent egg timer icon adjacent to my pointer.
After Postmaster's advice, I tried Firefox (that was worse) very slow internet I closed down, rebooted, took off Chrome, Firefox, and my java program and binned them.
Fresh install of Chrome, and my program.
Everything was fast, my program would not load "Unable to access jarfile" As a workaround I loaded the program using a link direct to the jarfile through its native folder It works, but without pretty Icon Link.
Hi Rodney Glad it now works?? What pretty Icon? Ahh, finally a closet IT person Jerry B
When the java program installs, Jerry, a link Icon is placed on the desktop (A little stamp) When one clicks the icon, "unable to access jarfile" and you have to abort
With my workaround, now I have the Java Cup of coffee, as my icon.
"Closet IT person"? I think not. Imagine, if you will, a Monkey, blindfolded, wearing a pair of welding gloves. That's how I feel working on computers, I dislike it intensely. That said, Win7 has been very stable up until now.
With my workaround, now I have the Java Cup of coffee, as my icon
What is wrong with that? I use a programming tool called Expresso and it uses the same Icon. It does not look that bad! You can always change the Icon to what ever you wish. It has nothing to do with Win 7, It is a Chrome thing.
My computing is made up of intuitive key strokes, Qwerty becomes second nature, as did my Stamp Icon, Chrome nicked it. I don't like software that tells me how I should do things. or change things, without so much as a "by your leave"......They can naff off. No earth shattering problem, just irritating.
I had no idea of the Java / Coffee relationship, and Indonesia is a close neighbour. Thanks for that.
Update: Properties / change icon, I have my little stamp back
I had no idea of the Java / Coffee relationship...
That is why they used a cup of coffee as an icon. You do not hear the expression very much anymore.
On my machine I made a folder called My Icons and I put general purpose icons in there so I know where they are all the time. Also, there are free and online programs to extract an icon(s) from an application.
firstfrog2013: Or maybe a new Telecaster?I still need to pay off the wife's ride first.My repair bill was $700 for the snow beast and cost to get equipment ready runs about $2000 with fuel.

Beryllium Guy: Yes, I forgot about your musical instrument collection! Sounds like you have some choices to make.... Maybe more of those Nova Scotia pence issues?

Jerry B: If I didn't play classical guitar, I would prefer the Telecaster

Jerry B: Hi Steve. We have a Google Search for TSF, is a Google Translate button a hassle. If so, forget I asked. I thought not only for cosmo's responses, but for future uses.

firstfrog2013: Jerry one day one may appear at your house, stranger things happened before.

tomiseksj: Hi Jerry. The short answer is yes. Members using Chrome can simply highlight the text to be translated, right click and then select "Google Translate" from the window that appears.

Jerry B: Hi frog. I am starting back with the guitar. I am starting with my Carcassi book and practicing scales.Instead of the stratocaster, I can give you the address of a guitar store in Atlanta that sells high-end acoustic guitars, only $1000 and up.
Feb 22, 2018 13:58:17 GMT
Jerry B: Hi Steve. I tried it but it doesn't work. It may be that I have an old version of Chrome that goes along with my XP dinosaur.
Feb 22, 2018 14:01:49 GMT
tomiseksj: Okay, Jerry. The google translate button is on the navigation bar. Please let me know if it works for you.
Feb 22, 2018 16:19:07 GMT
firstfrog2013: jerry I'm still content with my Ovation for acoustic work.I travel with that, a Fender(usually a strat)and a Gibson(mostly my studio)I leave high end stuff at home to avoid drunk damage on stage. (not me audience)It happens!

firstfrog2013: Ryan that's a funny one to watch.You seem to find some really odd stuff at times.I just spent some time learning about the boxer motor.I knew I liked them but didn't know the history I like them more now.
Feb 22, 2018 19:26:09 GMT
Jerry B: Hi frog: This is the store I was referring to: www.maplestreetguitars.com/index.php. In the past I bought sheet music from them. About the only store that carries classical sheet music.
Feb 22, 2018 21:15:44 GMT
Jerry B: Ryan. I agree with frog. How did you ever find that. Somewheres I have a video of two guitarists playing a piece on one guitar. One performs the fingering and the other plucking. I'll have to find it.
Feb 22, 2018 21:21:02 GMT
Ryan: I'm a big Robert Fripp fan so when you mentioned Ovation acoustics his Guitar Craft stuff immediately came to mind. There have now been over 3000 students in the Guitar Craft courses and the tentacles are spread far and wide.

firstfrog2013: jerry I see a PRS custom 24 there at reasonable price,it's on my bucket list.

Ryan: The 2nd-worst cello playing on record ever had two guys playing the thing at once - Bill Wyman worked the fretboard and Keith Richards scraped and sawed with the bow. www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtQFvu7gVXM
Feb 22, 2018 22:03:50 GMT
Ryan: The worst ever is any song by The Nice where Lee Jackson tried to play his bass guitar like a cello - worse yet, sometimes he sang at the same time. Yow!!
