Hi, welcome to the forums

Have a read through the following tutorial regarding IIS7.5 and see if there's anything there that could help.

Host a Website - IIS7.5

As far as Java goes, you could try re-installing Java and see if that has any effect.

Could you post a screenshot of your security tab to see if it's different from mine?

This issue can occur if Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is enabled.

Use the following method to disable it: Open Server Manager, click Configure IE ESC. Select Off for Administrators and click OK
