Did you compile your code with a different JDK? 1.5 (5.0) and are now trying to run it with 6.0?

No offense, but the very first item when you google "javaw.exe" is a page with the title "What is javaw.exe? Is javaw.exe spyware or a virus?".

I thought I had replied earlier.

I found your "is javaw.exe spyware or virus?" link eventually, Fred. It seemed to be where somebody was being very suspicious.

You can find more about javaw here: look particularly at the end of the "DESCRIPTION" section.

Are you getting that message from an IDE? I know some IDEs (eg Eclipse) seem to use javaw to start. The message you quote looks similar to the messages I get whenever a program finishes on NetBeans. There is a convention that exit value of 0 means normal completion, so it suggests you are getting no errors if there is a 0.

I guess my point was more that a quick google search would have found the answer much faster than posting the question here. I didn't realize google changes it's page ranking so fast.

It must change quickly; the "virus" page didn't appear unless I searched on "virus."
