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:
