    OK Now Folks... this is the most peculiar situation I've encountered to date
    with Visa/IE... Here's what I've done and here's what's going on... I'm
    trying to access NOAA radars with IE7. NOAA radars are Java applets...

    An example can be found here:
    http://radar.weather.gov/radar.php?rid=PBZ&product=NCR&overlay=11101111&loop=yes

    I updated Java to 1.6U7 and applets have subsequently failed... so I...

    Uninstalled all versions of Java
    Deleted the Java folder under Program Files
    Reset ALL of IE7 to defaults... inlcuding the master reset to defaults (made
    sure activex controls, jre, etc. we're reenabled)
    Rebooted
    Downloaded and installed JRE 1.6U7 using the manual java installer (with AV
    disabled and run as administrator)

    NOW...

    Java applets (including NOAA radars) work fine in FireFox for ALL USERS
    Java applets (including NOAA radars) work fine in IE7 in ANOTHER USER (not
    admin) on this same computer
    Java applets (including NOAA radars) DO NOT WORK in IE7 for MY (admin) user
    on this computer

    CONCLUSION... there is something "user specific" in either IE or VISTA or
    JAVA that's blocking this funtionality... If I only knew what !!!!!

    AND BY THE WAY... if I turn of User Account Control (UAC)... the problem
    goes away... Where's the bug ??
