Today when i started my computer and fired up Ignition and launched the designer to start work, my computer became slow, so i opened up task manager and saw around 45k processes of javaws.exe pointing to the designer.jnlp.
So i tossed together e k.cmd with the command “TASKKILL /F /IM javaws.exe” and looped it self.
The number of processes was konstant around 3-4k while the cmd-file was running for 30 minutes until i decided to uninstall java all together, only then the spawning stopped.
Removing the jnlp-file from disk did not help, it kept spawning anyway.
Today java wanted to upgrade to version 8, update 91.
Windows 7, 64-bit, 16GB ram, 128GB ssd + 750GB mechanical disk.
I am going to reinstall with a fresh downloaded java to see if it has solved or if it starts doing it again.
