    I do wonder if MS might have know, even meant for IE11 not to play well with Java, hoping people weren't using it so much anymore.

    I am disappointed that they didn't really document how Java handling changed with IE11, at least as far as I can tell. That you need admin rights to...

    So got into pingtest.net and it told me I don't have Java installed even though I tested on java.com and it said I had it. So it gets stranger yet!

    From appwiz.cpl, I found that I did not have Java 64 bit installed, so that was fairly easy to deal with. Given that the 64 bit installer is 'standalone', it seems free of the cr-pware that the...

    Do we actually know that unaltered IE11 64 bit will actually say that is such in the About?

    I thought I'd installed Java 64 bit but at this point I'm just not sure anymore.

    Hi,

    I do use sites, whether corporate job sites and others that require Java.

    I tried every way I could think of for opening IE11; I see only Protected Mode, not Enhanced Protected Mode. It...

    I sometimes use Canon software but it's overkill for my needs. And even if it worked, I still need to fix the Explorer.exe problem since it's not just about the camera image downloads.
