I am not sure if I posted this in the right section or not—moderator please change if I haven’t.

I am running XP Pro SP2 & IE 7.

I cannot get Java to Run or Open Applets in IE7. I’ve tried everything I could think about and read about and still no luck. I removed Java COMPLETELY –both using the ADD & Remove program in the control panel & the REVO Uninstaller. Cleaned all the files by doing a Search & checking Windows Explorer--

Downloaded Java again several times both the Online way & Offline way. With & without the Firewall being active.

Checked everything Java Suggests to enabled it—
1. Enable Java through your Web browser
2. Enable Java through the "Java Plug-in Control Panel"
3. Clearing your Web Browser Cache

The Control Panel & the Add & Remove program in the control panel say I have Java installed—even have the “Coffee Cup” icon shows in the Control panel.

The Java site still shows it not working in it’s TEST SITE.

The site I’m am trying to access Java Program tells me I have—

Java version is installed & enabled correctly. The system should function normally.

I know the site I am trying to access is working correctly because I have called their IT people and they can access the site using my password—I can also access the site & the Java part I need on my laptop running Vista.

Please some suggestion/help—I need this for my work & I’m losing my mind.

Thank you,

This is what you ought to be installing...http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp. Note the version. For Windows XP.

Louis, That is the version I have installed—I removed Java once again and tried again from your site which is the same site I used last night and D/L OFFLINE—same problem.

Then when I go back to the site you listed and click on “VERIFY NOW” it takes me to a site that says:

"Oops! You don't have the recommended Java installed.
Your installed family version is Java 6"

Then it tells me I need: Version 6 Update 16 –which is what I have installed.

The other thing I notice on that site you gave me is that it lists:

“Windows XP/Vista/2000/2003/2008”

My Version of XP is 2002 just about the time MS was changing & doing all that crazy stuff with Microsoft VM---I don’t know if that makes a difference or not but I do know at one time I had Java on my Computer and I don’t recall having any problems. What happened I don’t know.

Thank you, anymore suggestions.
