Sometimes Java will just stop working in 1 profile. I can fix this by creating another profile and pulling data over but I wonder if there is anything in particular that might be easier than creating a new profile to fix it.

Some other information is that I've checked the IE plugins and made sure Java is active and also reset web settings and this doesn't resolve the issue.

Hi,

When you got the same problem try to clean the Java cache maybe it solve the problem.
How do I clear the Java cache?

Another option instead of a new profile you can remove the java folder on your profile
Open Start Menu > Run > type: %appdata%\sun
rename the java folder to java.old

Make sure your java is updated because older versions have big security flaws.
There are bad sites on the net that will try to infect computers using Java exploits.

Thanks for the reply, I tried clearing the java cache as well as deleting the whole sun folder and neither has solved it. It obviously has to be a setting somewhere in the user profile maybe even a registry entry? Neither of those suggestions solved it.

Hi,

Does java stops working completely or is a particular application/web site you use?
Check if java is working using this link

Nope it's every site. It is as if the plugin is disabled but when you look at IE settings it's not.
