Other Java Issues.
Off on a tanget to the article, but
The Java installer sucks (yes we already knew that with the Ask toolbar)
Resets Java update settings. Set java to download before installing and set it to daily. Install new update. It's now reset to monthly and warn before downloading.
I've had to reinstall J7v17 twice on many systems as it doesn't install the browser plug-in to IE or Firefox correctly. These days I'd consider this a benefit other then the computers really needed it for apps to work.
