WJView - Information

Might be caused after the incomplete uninstallation / removal of an adware called WebSavings. This adds an entry in registry and loads the Java Class file present in it's folder, at Windows startup. This may also be caused by any other software. One of the most common cause I noticed is due to WebSavings / TopMoxie.

WJView is the Microsoft command-line loader for Java and it's a legit file. You don't need to extract a new copy of this file, nor download Java VM. Adware removers and the Anti-virus software removes the Java Class file without removing the startup entry referencing WJView. That's why the error is caused

You may uncheck the WJView entry from MSCONFIG Startup tab. To remove the traces from the registry, re-check the startup entry and start Registry Editor. Browse to the following registry location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Run
Value: "WebSavingsfromEbates"
Data: "wjview /cp:p "C:\Program Files\WebSavingsfromEbates\System\Code" Main lp: "C:\Program Files\WebSavingsfromEbates""


First, use the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet. If this does not help, try this: Click Start, Run and type Regedit. Press OK. Go to this location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Run

In the right pane, delete the value called WebSavingsfromEbates

Close Regedit.

Delete the following folders and subfolders: C:\Program Files\WebSavingsfromEbates\ (Includes 3-4 subfolders) In Internet Explorer, you will also see a right-click context-menu item named WebSavings. You may remove it using ToolbarCop.
