Are you not running XP?
IE is the problem. I will have to research that and see what I can find. What version of IE are you using?

We have checked the drives and no problem there
We have checked windows and no problem there.
We can check the memory but I do not personally think it is a issue.
I can only believe there is a issue with the program and Vista.
The only thing that hasn't been run is the sfc /scannow

Others have this on Vista and it runs fine.

Short of uninstalling IE back to original and then upgrading it again there is no reason for it acting the way it does.
The only other possibility now is some type of browser hijack on IE. If you want then you can have your system gone through by a malware tech and make sure that is not the issue. If you choose to do that then
Please go to the "Malware Forum" link in my signature below and follow the instructions at the top
Especially the "You Must Read This Before Posting A HijackThis Log".
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself.
If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty start a topic and post the requested logs in THAT forum.
Once the malware technicians have cleared out any infection and given you a clean bill of health, and if the problem continues then feel free to post back here and we can investigate the problem even more.

I do not have either of these
Do you think that is the problem? If so, how do I go about getting these added?

I am doing some research on it also and will let oyu know what I find
I did notice that Jar files should be able to be opened by any unzip program like winrar or winzip
If you right click on the file and open with>>point to winrar or winzip try that
Now I found this, but before you do this please download Erunt from Here and run it. This will make a clean backup of your registry that you can replace if something goes wrong.
First, create a text file, jar.reg with content simlar to this (Name this so that you can remember in case it needs to be removed):
@="Executable Jar File"
@="C:\\Program Files\\JavaSoft\\JRE\\1.3.1\\bin\\javaw.exe -jar %1"
(You could change the %1 to %L if there are short/long filename problems. Also, although you see both '\' and '\\' used above, rest assured it is correct.)
Now all you have to do is import that reg file

The only other thing I can think of is that at one point I had Vundo, but that's been long cleaned up and I just did a scan last week and it was clean, but could some of the things I used to remove Vundo blocked or is keeping Java from installing correctly?
Yes, jar files can open with winzip and winrar, but this is a jar executable file, and should be able to just run

What Av are you using now
What Spyware are you using now
what malware are you using now
what firewall are you using now
Please reply back with information

Right now I am running AVG for everything, but just switched to it a couple of weeks ago, before that I had the McAfee security suite.
I did shut the firewall down before I reinstalled Java this last time and there was no change.
