    While trying to play POGO.com games. I got error msg [Java Not Found or Not
    Working]. Pogo had worked prior to today. Something has changed, but I can
    not figure it out. I can log on to Pogo ok and play non-Java based games.
    When I select a Java based screen it goes to game popup and starts loading
    then popup closes and site goes to error msg. screen. It does this wheather I
    use IE7.0 or Firefox 2.0, I get the same error. Java console is enabled for
    Tray but does not show with browser in use, there fore can not check Java
    execution steps.
    Java does not work for Vista User acct.rjboney. Every thing works ok if I
    logout and login underVista user acct. pdboney. Both accounts have the same
    administrator rights. I ran the following tests.

    Vista User Acct. pdboney Java test results
    Ran Java.com java test and It showes installation ok.
    Ran Pogo's EA support test for Java with results:
    Java 1.6.0_01 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)
    Windows Vista 6.0 (x86)
    Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR
    2.0.50727; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.0.04506)

    Vista User Acct. rjboney Java test results
    RanJava.com java test and it goes to web site:
    http://java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml but no test seems to run.
    Ran Pogo's EA support test for Java with results:
    No info just a square with a red [X].

    I have checked and/or tried the following.
    Popup blockers are off.
    I have deleted cache and temporary internet files.
    Uninstalled and reinstalled Java with firewall disabled and Vista UAC
    disabled.
    Windows Updates are upto date.
    Problem still there. Pogo and Java work ok under other Vista User Accouts
    but not this User Account.
    I get the same error when I use IE7.0 or Firefox 2.0
    I checked McAfee and Java Platform has permission enabled for Java.

    * IS there some file or fix for a User acct. that would not automatically be
    fixed by reinstalling Java?

    * Is there possibly a Windows security system blocking Java that I do not
    know or, and if so how do I check it? Example UAC?

    I could possibly create a new User Account but would perfer not to as I am
    the primary user of this computer and it would be a lot of work transfering
    user data across and I am not sure if problem would not follow. I would do
    this as a last resort.

    Yes, Java has issues under Vista.

    I've not tried what you suggested, but I finally got Java running in Firefox
    recently, and I know I've seen 3 systems in my "shop" because people can't
    play on Pogo (popular site). My suggestion? Call Electronic Arts. If you've
    tested other sites that use Java and Java works on those sites (on both
    accounts) then chances are this is a problem with the Pogo site, or a
    combination of Java being "Semi-functional" and Pogo's website being a pile.

    Good luck.

    Java doesn't work under my vista login on my laptop. It works fine under my
    wifes and kids logons. Problem seems to be and interface problem with Vista
    and Java in only on one login. I have reloaded Java multiple times, but
    something in only this one user account is not being replaced. All settings
    are the same for all Vista Login accounts.
