This problem was reported by one of our readers that in his Vista operating System there was no section of Java in the Internet Options of IE7 even after installing the latest updates from the official Java site (one that is shown below)
Java is required while browsing internet and to open many pages that require a small java applet to be opened up. Java is required by every browser whether it is Internet Explorer or Firefox. To restore the missing Java section in the web browsers just follow the following steps. However you can also perform the following steps to disable the Java from browsers.
1. Open Control Panel.
2. If your computer is updated with the updates of Java then you would see “Java” options there.
3. Open the Java control panel, go to Advanced tab.
4. See the option of “Default Java for Browsers” setting.
5. Check the button of “Microsoft Internet Explorer” to integrate IE with Java.
Similarly you can do it for other browsers installed. Hope the problem is solved.
