There is also an entry for Java Plug-in, and expanded, Enable the next-generation Java Plug-in (requires browser restart). This too is grayed out, see above. Not sure on this one, as it is not browser specific. I didn't do either as I don't want to screw things up. Maybe this weekend after making images. A Guy
Thanks. I already uninstalled java using revo. I don't have jave in programs, perhaps i should reinstall it to see if your method removes the add on?

Tell the truth, if you visit the Java test page, and Java is indeed gone, I wouldn't worry. Apparently within IE it is difficult to disable Java, so the listing not going doesn't surprise me.

BTW

The Java Deployment Toolkit takes the guess work out of determining what versions of the Java Platform end users have installed on their PCs. It supplies Java based web applet/application deployers with a simple JavaScript interface. This greatly increases the ease of detections of users' Java environment, as well as the ease of Java Platform deployment.

I don't plan on ever getting java though. And the website you gave requests deployment toolkit be enabled, but detects nothing if i enable it or disable it. Hate when people force stuff on my computer, i feel violated when they do.

I enabled it, but still didn't find it listed in IE plug ins.

Eh, I don't feel like reinstalling java, so I'll just leave it as it is for now. Thanks A Guy

No problem, it may actually be gone as I say, but IE will not recognize that. A Guy

If you do get curious, you could always run procmon whilst starting IE to see what files / reg keys it reads during startup, and get some clues as to what files it might be loading that would be related. Surgery could then ensue if you so chose to "fix" it .

I don't have Java installed but I have that add on as well, clicking on the more info button gave me this,

Which led me to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 where the .dll is located

Good catch Derek! I hadn't seen it in my IE as I only had active addons displayed. A Guy
