Hi, I was referred here from the HijackThis forum. I had a Vundo infection which seems to be gone, but since then Java is not working properly.
I've deleted and reinstalled to no avail.
Poking around this forum I saw someone else's problem was a corrupted user profile, so I created a new user profile which seemed to restore SOME functionality, like some chatrooms that use java, but other java links, basically anything that entails a popup window, don't seem to work. Others, like logout buttons, are inconsistent.
Went to Java and ran the "test" and was unable to see the animated logo.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated, thanks.

I've had java-related problems with IE & Opera, but none at all when I used Firefox. Suggest you use Firefox.

When you went to the Java site...did you download/install the newest version of Java?

Yes. I uninstalled the old version first as well.

One more time then. This program will uninstall all remains of Java. Download and run: http://raproducts.org/
Then check that all Java is gone in Add/remove programs. Then download and run CCleaner: http://www.ccleaner.com/download. Run the ordinary cleaning function on top. Then also run the registry scanner in CCleaner and remove whatever is found. Then run the scanner at Java Sun's homepage: http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp. Install what it recommends.

If this can't cure the problem, we'll just have to look at it again. :D

I forgot: when all is done you'll also need to reboot.

What browser do you use? This could be an IE 7 issue. Try some of these methods in this Microsoft article:

How to optimize or reset Internet Explorer 7: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936213

Also: there seems to be a problem with compatibility between these 3 programs: Norton ~ Pogo Games ~ Java. Source: http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000041600.xml

You could also try this offline method for downloading and installing Java. Link: http://www.java.com/en/download/help/6000010400.xml

Is this only with Internet Explorer. Does it work with another browser? Chrome/Firefox?

Try using the above methods to unstall all Java from the machine, and run ccleaner.

Then BE SURE that the java addons are uninstalled from IE.
From IE >> Go to Tools >> Internet Options >> Click "programs" tab >> Manage Addons
From here delete all Java addons.

Click the Advanced tab, and click the "reset" button. READ THE DISCLAIMER before proceeding.

Then re-install Java.

Did all this, now I can see the Java test but still having problems with some webpages. The error message is generally either "Syntax error" or "Object doesn't support this property or method."

That's not Java. That's JavaScript. Not the same thing. It usually means someone messed up programming the graphics on that particular page.

Can you link directly to those pages in which you are having issues?
