With recent security vulnerabilities, I’ve been talking many people through disabling Java in Internet Explorer 9. This page serves as a quick visual reference point for disabling Java in Internet Explorer 9.
[stextbox id=alert]I recommend everyone uninstall Java completely…[/stextbox]
This is a quick publish.
If you want to disable Java from your webbrowser, there are two methods to quickly accomplish this. The first and easiest is the the Java Control Panel. This method is only available if you have Java 7 Update 10 since this is when they introduced the option in the Java Control Panel. If you do not have Update 10, you can use Method 2 to disable Java from your browser.
You can also set the security to High in the Java Control Panel instead of disabling it. This will require self-signed/unsigned applets to request permission before running and may be a slightly better option for those who need to be able to use Java in the browser for work purposes.[/stextbox]
Method 1: Java Control Panel
Method 2: Internet Explorer Manage Add-ons
