Accessing Cisco PIX 501 GUI w/Windows 7, IE 9 and old version of Java

i have always had an older win XP pc around with an older java 5 runtime, and IE 7 or 8 and could accessthe cisco pix 501 gui
now i have several field techs with windows 7 and the latest IE browser and cannot access the gui
i use SSH (putty) for real config work but alsways liked that we could see the gui for quick views and minor config changes
does anyone know a way to accomplish this?
all help is greatly appreciated

Although you can't use IE on Windows7, you can use other browsers.

When I have to run PDM, I use Netscape Navigator on Windows 7, however Java is the biggest hurdle, and you may need to uninstall the current Java version and install a (significantly) older version, such as 1.22
