I have vista with IE7. I installed Java several times and it never "connects" to my IE browser. It is installed but it is not in my add-ons. This is a new laptop computer that came with vista and IE7. I have now installed firefox and use this instead because I cannot get IE to work correctly. Everyone tells me to enable java in the advanced tab in the tools on IE, but java is not there. I have confirmed that it is on my computer in the controll panel and I do have the java control panel. Also, in IE in the advanced tab, where is says to run plug ins the browser, the IE selection is in gray and I cannot access this. the mozilla is in dark type and can be accessed. I do not know how to check if the no add ons mode is on. Can anyone help me with this. Oh, my daughter has a desktop computer with vista and IE7 and she has no problems at all. I need help as this is driving me insane.

In IE, go Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab, and click "Reset" button.
Restart computer. See, if it helped.

Thanks Broni for your quick reply. I tried what you said and it still did not help. But, I discovered today that I have two different versions of IE7 on my laptop. One is IE7 and the other is IE7 with 64 bit. Just found this today. The IE7 works fine. Dont' know if it was always there or just after I reset it like you said. But now is works. Thank you

Aha. You have 64-bit Windows version installed, and yes, there are two IE versions present. It's better to use 32-bit. One of the reasons - Adobe still didn't come up with 64-bit compatible Flash Player.
