packeteers, apparently you disabled "javascript" rather than disabling "java".. they are not the same thing.. you can go ahead and re-enable "javascript", though some of us have javascript restricted from running except on webpages where we want to allow it to run..

so, if you want to disable "java", you need to to go back and disable it, but that doesn't mean disabling "javascript"..

What is the difference ? What / where is "Javascript" ? My control panel and add/remove programs only show "Java" as downloaded from here ;

It is Java that this vulnerability is concerned with.
And it would be Java that you would want to disable.

JavaScript is not Java

Java 6 on XP
Javascript is enabled/disabled in your browser's options/preferences. Java's control panel is where you enable/disable it and it is located in the Windows Control Panel. You access the advanced tab and, if you have both IE and plugin browsers Java installed, you can enable just for one type of browser and not the other or, enable for both, or disable for both, and then when you need it you can temporarily enable it.

I have an early version of Java 6, so the Java Control Panel may look different in Java 7 but you can the idea from my screenshot.

yes, "java" is "java" and that is what you are seeing when you see "java" in windows "add/remove" and in "control panel".. "java" is a program that you install, like when you install "java" at "java.com"..

"javascript" is a function of a browser which is built into a browser, and it can be enabled or disabled in a browser's settings-options.. (it also can be controlled by using the "noscript" addon with the "firefox" browser)..
