I figured it out. I removed the annoying java pop-up in the right corner of my tool bar, thinking it wouldn't hurt anything--wrong. I uninstalled the java prgm, then downloaded and reinstalled it from their website. Then I managed to turn off the pop-up without deleting it! thanks for your interest!
