    If the javacpl.cpl file is there then just double-click it and run it from it's folder. It'll still work. Doesn't have to be in Control Panel.

    When you reinstalled Java this time, did it create the "new_plugin" folder (post #23) & the three files (#25)?

    I don't see "new_plugin" in it.

    I forgot to ask what happened when you double-click on javacpl.cpl? You got an error message?

    And what folder(s) other than "client" were created in "c:\program files\java\bin"? "plugin2" like before?

    I hope I'm not getting too confused here. This is the "Client" folder

    Now if I can re locate the java.cpl I'll answer that,too.

    Ok, clicking the "java.cpl", it brought up the Java Control Panel

    I have a check next to Mozilla Family.


    As for the folders, I have 2 in the "bin" folder:

    c:\program files\Java\jre6\bin\client
    c:\program files\Java\jre6\bin\new_plugin

    There should be 3 files (post #25) in the "new_plugin" folder.

    I'm sorry,I forgot to say when I first did it, I DID put a check mark in the ones you mentioned & it told me the changes would be applied after restart & so I clicked ok & the browser disappeared.
    From post # 24 "Ok, I got as far as \bin\ but there is no "new_plugin instead it says plugin2
    & in there I see "npjp2.dll" ".

    In the Bin folder

    I'm stumped. The only thing I can find at the moment is this:
    Above is from http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/faqs/java.html#Win32

    It's a registry entry.

    Run regedit, if you navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\mozilla.org\Mozilla
    You should see an entry call CurrentVersion, type REG_SZ, data (in my case) 10.0.2

    All these time I don't think I've asked this yet. If you look at the list of your plugins, is Java listed at all? In my screen cap, it's the 3rd from the bottom.

    Interesting. Java SE 7? This is what you got from java.com or Oracle? When I visit java.com using FF, I'm offered version 6, update 31.

    I really don't know whether that makes a difference or not. But I suppose you can try to install version 6.

    In my add/remove, it shows I have version 6, update 31

    If I remember correctly, I went to java.com to download it but when it was installing it,it showed Oracle & said something like 3 billion devices use java.
    Is there a chance this might correct its self over time?

    This is what it says about Java SE7 @ java.com:

    The typical method from java.com will only let you download v6. Looks like File Hippo installed Java SE7. Can File Hippo uninstall what it installed?

    Ok, let me back up a bit. When I first got that update via filehippo, to my knowledge it said nothing about it being for developers so I installed it.
    Later I found out what you said.
    Now, when I click my filehippo updater that same update is being offered but I won't install it.
    I think from here on out, when I see an update on filehippo, I'll update thru the program & NOT filehippo.
    I do sincerely thank you for your patience & time.
    I'm bookmarking this thread in case a nice miracle happens.
    I doubt filehippo will remove it.
    Have a great weekend,you deserve it.:grinthumb

    After I do post # 70, I'm assuming I should reboot & go to java.com ?

    I've been to that link & did it with the exception of "Remove JavaRa Logfile (optional)".
    Then,I clicked my filehippo updater & the java update was gone.
    IE said I needed java & my add/remove shows
    [​IMG]

    So, I then went to start>search>Files & folder & it found 112 files.
    Now what?

    Tthese 112 files are the useless JRE files the app found? Copy them to a temp directory just in case, then delete them. After you've found no issues w/ these files being gone, then delete them from the folder.

    Not sure what JavaFX is, I'd remove Java 6 update 13. And do a clean install after JavaRa finishes it's thing. Java auto update, I guess that was installed when Java was installed?

    Sorry for my ignorance, but how do I "Copy them to a temp directory"?
    Does that mean something like putting them on a flashdrive? :confused:
