Appears to be time for An Archive & Install, which gives you a new OS, but can preserve all your files, pics, music, settings, etc., as long as you have plenty of free disk space...
I have performed an Archive and install. Many thanks:
Performing an Archive and install will only overwrite the operating system and retains all user files and applications.
Upon reinstall, you will need to manually install the Java updates using Software Update.
You will need to install Java 4, 5 and 6 in sequence
Then download the other updates for the Mac OS to take it to 10.4.11 but ignore the Java 7 update.
