    Default Main method/ class problem. I can't run any script!

    Hello I am very new to Java and have been using a mix of eclipse and net beans. Just today I have been getting these two errors no matter what script I run. Even if the script is perfectly fine I will get these two errors on both net beans and eclipse. everything has been working fine until today.

    Java version: 7.0.30.5
    net beans version: 7.1.2

    Your Test.java source file contains a class called "Hello" - that's wrong, it should be a class called "Test". If you want its full class name to be test.Test, you should have a package declaration at the top of the source file like "package test".

    But did you try turning your PC off and then on again?
