Receiving oracle.jdbc.driver error when trying to connect

Hello, I'm going to start by saying I'm a rank amateur when it comes to using and understand SQL developer. My entire need for this program is to connect to a virt server at my office and test out my SQL queries against our tables. It's been working great for this purpose until yesterday when I received this error:

An error was encountered performing the requested operation:


Vendor code 0

I did some searching and found a few references to this error but due to my inexperience I was unable to follow the resolutions and fix the error. This connection was working fine until yesterday afternoon which seemed odd. Based on my control panel, here is what I installed yesterday, I believe I installed both Java's after the error occurred seeing if they would alleviate the issue.

MySQL Administrator 1.1
Java SE Development Kit 6 Update 41 (64-bit)
MySQL Workbench 5.2 CE
Java 6 Update 41 (64-bit)

Could one of these be the root of the issue?

Thanks for the help and sorry for the lack of technical expertise, my need is very narrow and up until now this program has worked great for me.
