Re: Warning: 0-Day vulnerability in Java 7

Why isn't the IE Oracle add-on called Deployment Toolkit uninstalled when Java 7 Update 6 is unstalled? You need to display all add-ons to see it.

If you mean there is no Java installation remaining on your system then it's probably because the uninstaller left behind a .dll file which IE is still seeing. In versions 6.xx the file npdeploytk.dll was left lying around and confused some apps but I don't know if that's the one IE looks at.

You can go in and manually delete any and all Java program directories then clean the registry if you feel comfortable performing such tasks. Again, assuming you've done away with all Java installs, not just the mentioned v7,u6.

Related note: the Java Toolkit add-on is a forced component of Java starting with v6,u10 and is turned on by default. Does not get disabled when you disable the Java Console or Platform and cannot be removed. All you can do is disable it in browser.

Cheers!
