    OK here is some more info, I looked more carefully and one thing I said
    was wrong - the JRE is NOT loaded! Other Sun addons are. I decided to
    try disabling all components but Sun ones, and it still fails. But the
    loaded ones are

    Java Platform SE binary
    JQSIEStartDetectorImpl Class
    Plug-In 2 SSV Helper
    Java Plug-In SSV Helper

    If I "show" Add-ons that have been used by IE, I see a Java PlugIn
    1.6.0-6 (or -5, or -10, depending on which one is installed).

    Any ideas why it is not loading, how to force the load, review an error
    message about it, etc.?

    Dominick,
    Last thing I can think of is a conflict between the different versions of
    Java.
    JRE doesn't install previous versions when installing a new one.
    Go to Control Panel, Remove Programs, and uninstall all versions of Java.
    Then install JRE6 Update 6 from scratch.
    One last question. When you say "JRE is NOT loaded!" do you mean that it is
    not listed in the "Manage add-ons" tab of the Tools, Internet Options,
    Programs menu?
    Or is it simply "disabled"?

    OK, I uninstalled everything fresh, and deleted the folders from Program
    Files (x86). Installed JRE 6 update 6 (recently out I think). Now for
    the first time, when I bring up an applet page in IE7, the Java SE
    starts in the tray! A small Java window pops up in the top left corner,
    empty. It is not the Java console. But as you can see from the web
    page, nothing shows to pass the applet test.

    Is there a place I could post a pic of what this looks like?

    To answer your other question, formerly it was not loaded/showing in the
    list at all, as opposed to disabled. Now it shows but the applet test fails.

    Dominick,
    It seems we are doing some progress here!
    Something I didn't mention, and I don't know if it is important, is that I
    right-click on the JRE6 u6 installer and choose to install as administrator.
    Getting back to the test page:
    http://www.upshot.com/login/javatest/logo/javavmtest.html
    what you should see is the title "Java VM Test", top, center and a
    counterclockwise rotating purple triangle right below it.
    Just a tad below "Version", centered
    And, with grey background "Vendor: Sun Microsystems Inc. Version: 1.6.0"
    You might want to take a look again at the Java control panel options in the
    systray icon.
    Best of luck.

    I ran that page with Firefox so I know exactly what it is supposed to
    look like. And (gasp!) the account I use has admin privileges, so I am
    pretty sure the install is ok - especially since it works on Firefox.

    So frustrating...

    What do you think the little window is the appears when a Java page is
    reached? It has no name and it doesn't show up in Applications task list...

    I have tried the Java forums, not yet tried the IE forums. Sorry for
    the dumb question, which forum is that?

    and thanks for your help!

    Thanks Carlos.

    BTW, I installed the java v6u10 beta version, and I got a different
    symptom - a box would come up for the applet, but it would say error
    click here; and then it would say that the class was not found;
    classnotfoundexceptionerror. It happened on every site I went to.

    I am beginning to think IE is so wrapped up in security protection it's
    tripping over itself and unable to work properly. This all sounds like
    something is not being permitted to run, and I have tried turning all
    security, privacy, and advanced features to minimal/off with no effect.
    I then reset them with no effect.

    I may just watch the updates and do Java work in Firefox. I (and you!)
    have spent way too much time on this! Imagine all this just trying to
    get a simple "Hello world" applet to run in a browser window! Absurd...
