Problem with JAVA and IE 7 for certain Web pages

Hello, I recently bought a new Vista OS PC which I use for remote work. I am having a problem seeing a Java enabled Webpage on my company's Intranet. Bascially, when I click a certain link on one of the intranet pages IE just goes away, no errors, messages anything. I know that the link creates a grid control and I believe it uses Java to display this. I have an XP machine right next to me and the page opens there just fine. The version of Java on the XP machine is 1.4.0_01, on the new Vista machine I have two versions of Java installed, the one previously mentioned and also 1.6.0_01 -b07.

If I disable the 1.4 version through manage ADD-ons in the IE tools menu then instead of aborting outright I get a message that states "Browser must support Java to view ColdFusion Java Applets", of course it still doesn't work. If I disable the newere version then the page aborts.

Any ideas?

First, download the newest Java update here:


Now, try uninstalling both of the older Java versions, and install this one. It will work.

Anyway, having 2 Java updates installed WILL cause lots of problems. That's probably why your page wasn't displayed properly and was crashing when the older version was disabled.
