Just as I indicated. Laptop, Windows Vista fully updated. I downloaded 7u9 JRE and accidentally proceeded without first rightclicking and selecting to Run as Administrator; I simply opened the installer by double-click and continued. The typical installation instructions for onto Windows Vista are to right click and choose Run As Administrator, which in this case, I forgot to do.

I can find the items in Control Panel. I tested two websites for how they show and act in the browser (I used Firefox 16.0.1) and they worked normally. In case the information has any meaning, the sites I used were www.revolvermaps.com, and screencastomatic.com. The latter has videos which the visitor can play and they require Java be installed on the user's computer. No unusual problem.

Is this enough to be satisfied about the Java install? Should I uninstall and then reinstall using Run As Administrator?

If it's working, it should be fine...

“May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently thorugh the world and know it's beauty all the days of your life.”
