The problem was sun Java a update (my original thought) , every time I tried to up date a got a "Sun Java Error: 25099 Unzipping Core Files Failed – Fix discovered".. error message. Finally I googled the error message number and got my answer.
It seems you have to go to "my computer>>local disk>>programs Files>>Java>> and then delete everything you can in all the files. But don't delete it out of your recycle Bin just yet. You want the option to "restore all items" if it doesn't work.
Then go to sun java and download the latest version http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
That totally worked for me. Its fixed now. Friggin sun Java, they don't make it easy to update.
