Another update - removing the older J7U1-x64 did not show me the "Enable Java content in the browser" option which is supposed to be present in the Java Control Panel under "Security".
I decided to completely remove Java and anything related - I uninstalled J7U1-x64 previously - now removing JavaFX 2.1.1 - and Java 7 U10-i586 (32-bit) - restarted the machine. Then downloaded theFULL installer of J7U10 – my Java control panel now shows the "enable Java content in the browser" option under the Security tab.
With an installation that had incrementally updated through releases – the control panel did not show those option on my machine. What is the point of upgrading if not every piece of the software gets upgraded?!?
I recommend you remove Java entirely - restart - visit the Java download page - get the full installer:
Then install and restart. Finally - open the control panel - and UNCHECK the "Enable Java content ni the browser" option.
Here is what the Control panel - Security Tab *should* look like:
