IE6 Java Permission Error

I have a Windows XP/IE6 computer that will not run a java web application correctly.  I think it is simply a setting somewhere.  The applet is a file download/transfer utility that is supposed to open an explorer-like dialog box.  You should then be able to browse your system for a location to save the download.

However, on this one computer, the applet stops with the message "File transfer is not possible due to insufficient permissions or save options"..

I can go to other computers in the office and use the particular web site with no problems.  Also, I can run the applet properly from the problem PC if I login as another user.  This is what makes me think this is simply a setting tied to the user account.

I've tried several security options within IE6 trying to open up ActiveX and Java permissions.  Are there separate Java permissions that can be applied per user?  If this were a machine or system-wide setting I shouldn't be able to run the app while signed on as another user.

Would it help to remove and reinstall Java or Microsoft's Virtual Machine?  

Thanks in advance.

Yes, from your description it sounds like:

a) That user hasn't enough permissions as the message states
b) That user profile got corruped in some way

Options:

a) Change permissions is profiel is not corrupted
b) Create a new user profile

Better than that is creating a new profile and delte the corrupted one.

It seems you have already tried that, when you say you logged in as another user.

If that works, just do that, easier, faster and safer.

The end user is not happy with creating another account.  He had a highly customized environment so we lost too many things in the process of trying to copy his existing profile to a new account.

Miguel was right.  I don't know why I didn't think of this earlier.  I had reinstalled Microsoft Virtual Machine, but not Sun Java.
