This is probably my fault for not mentioning this in the first place, but when I was installing Windows 7, it hung up for 4+ hours on the "Windows is finalizing your settings" dialoge box, so I just restarted and everything went just fine. I figured the possibly botched install could have had something to do with it, so I tried doing another clean install of Windows 7. It did the same thing.
However, while I was reinstalling I saw your response and tried it after I restarted and Windows came up. It did work in the sense that the Java verification screen now does sense Java is installed and working. However, I still get the error "Java Runtime Environment is out of date or missing" from programs.
I'm open to suggestions.. haha..
