I went thru reg and deleted all things java..rebooted ...then downloaded both 32 & 64 versions.... Installed ...rebooted again but I still don't have java
All the boxes r checked re java
Please help 😖

Uninstall all versions of Java again. Then use Javara (http://singularlabs.com/software/javara/javara-download/) to remove whats left over. Then install Java again

Are you installing v8 update 5 or 7 update 60??

Teamviewer (http://www.teamviewer.com) will let me log in so I can see what the prob is. Install it it'll give you an ID and password. If you want me to have a look, give me the ID and password, it gives you in a PM

Looks like it was a permission / security feature with Java. I dont think previous versions of Java cared about what site you went to, but from 7 update 51, this changed.

So if you go to a site that uses Java, that maybe untrusted (but you know its OK), you have to add it as an exception to the settings under Java control panel. Had to add the url in the Java control panel settings. For the site to work. But I dont think it needs to added under trusted sites in IE.

I think the security settings these sites (that didnt work) were complaining about had to do with Java not IE.
