Model = HP Pavilion dv6 notebook PC
Operating System = windows 7 professional, SP1
CPU = Intel Core I5 CPU M540 @2.53 GHz
Memory = 8 GB
Video Card = Not sure where to locate
Vassal version = I believe 3.2.2.  Vassal won't load to confirm, but
this is the latest install file I have
Java version = java version "1.7.0_51"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_51-b13)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 24.51-b03, mixed mode, sharing)

My PC died when my UPS box died.  Despite being a laptop, the dead UPS
shut of my PC.  I got the computer to restart and it is running fine

However, something has gotten corrupted with Vassal.  Everything else is
working fine.
It appears to be something screwed with Java.  I uninstalled, then

I found a suggestion about Java and appended my path variable to add

After that is when I got the above Java version message.  
Even after this I still can't get Vassal to load.  Any idea what I need
more to do with Java?

I tried system restore to an earlier point and it failed to fix this. 
In addition, it corrupted other programs.  System restore isn't the

NOTE:  Vassal was running 100% fine before the PC lock up.  I know
something got corrupted, but no clue what.
