I run 10.5.8 on a PowerMac G5. During a recent software upgrade I seem to have lost or damaged Java related functionality in the OS.


Symptoms include:


: Java Preferences crashes on launch

: "Missing plugin" appears in Mail.app messages where photos should be

: Certain apps I have built in Java claim "Cannot launch Application. It requires newer java"

: In Safari, banner ads don't appear in some cases.  (ok, it isn't all bad)

: I've also lost video playing functionality on YouTube and other sites (but I thought that was Flash-related, but maybe they are connected somehow)


Saftware Update in System Preferences says everything is up to date and I can't seem to figure out what else to diagnose much less fix the problems.


Any kind souls out there able to point me in the right direction?
