That's the right stuff. I'd say go into Internet Options, Advanced tab and see if Java shows up, it should list that version, and the java compiler is enabled. You could also enable the console and logging. The problem has to be pretty basic here because the machine actually uses java, the JRE is just a library that other programs use, but I think IE uses it too.

You can go into Programs>Accessories>System tools>System information and expand Software env. and look at 32 bit modules loaded to see if there is any java stuff loaded.
