I am trying to fix a Vista laptop. The machine is running Vista home premium, the 64 bit version.

We had some problems with it and I reset IE back to it's defaults. That fixed most of the issues.

however, Java won't run on one user's IE7. I've tried reinstalling java several times. The download pages aren't very clear about which version you need for Vista HP 64.

According to the one message I saw, it appears that I now have the 32 and 64 bit versions of Java installed.

BTW - I have tried a couple of java based sites and none of them will run in ie7 for the one user.

What we've ended up with is

User 1
- Java does not run in ie7 but will run in firefox

user 2
- Java runs fine on IE7 and firefox.

I'd appreciate any ideas on this.

thanks

Java has a bad habit of leaving old installs around when you update. I would uninstall all of the Java, reboot and install a clean copy.

The other issue I would look at would be the user's IE settings. It is possible that they have Security or Privacy settings turned up in their account.

Thanks for the info.

Too bad Java doesn't have a 'Removal tool' Like Norton. That little critter has helped a number of times.

Next time I'm on the machine I might try a 'reset to defaults' in IE and see where that gets me

Again, thanks

Have you looked in the Windows Uninstall repository (Control Panel¦Programs). Java updates seem to get listed.
