You forgot to mention which platform.
My answer will cover windows (XP-pro SP2).
Your a victim of the update policy of Java or more the lack of it.

There's only one solution.

- Uninstall all updates
- Uninstall Java
- Check if all java objects are gone from IE

Go to: and reinstall Java again.

As soon after announcement of an update:

- refuse
- java uninstall
- download java and install again

Follow this procedure until they see the light and figure out a real updateservice.

Confirming this error also occurs in Windows 7, the fix provided by diepfreezer works in Windows 7 as well.

Has anybody reading this forum ever tried anything like that and did it work or not?
