Installing java on IE 9

We are having an issue with java on Internet explorer 9.
We have had this happen several times to different computers and have not been able to find any fix except a complete re-install, which is getting to be a problem.
Internet explorer 10 will be installed on a windows 7 computer that was running IE 9.
Since 10 is not compatible with our web based apps, it has to be removed. After removing IE 10, IE 9 will no longer see any java content. Chrome and firefox will show java as installed and working, but under IE 9 there is no trace of it. We have tried uninstalling java and re-installing it without any luck. We have also tried sfc /scannow, unstalling IE 9 and trying to re-install it again (IE 9 will NOT re-install once removed) without any success. What we need to know is what does IE 10 do to windows 7 to not allow java to run under any other IE version?

Windows 7 SP1
IE 9
Java =  jre1.7.0_17-c ( cannot upgrade as any newer version breaks our apps as well.)

it appears from your notes  IE10 may not be loading in IE10 I have the same problems and found out that in my internet options ,, Manage add on IE 10 would NOT load JRE. check for some GPO overriding rules that may be blocking your add-ons if your JAVA has been installed and verified then I would think it will not load in IE10. The fact that it loads in other browsers shows you have installed it correctly buy MANAGE ADD ONS may NOT be allowing it to load in IE10.

You mis-understood, we do not have IE 10, and do not want it. We need java to run under IE 9. After 10 has been accidently installed and removed, IE 9 will no longer run java. There arte no GPOs or any other AD options to block it.

For the future, block installation of IE10

Use JavaRa to uninstall whatever version(s) of Java you now have.

Then install whatever version of Java you want.  But you are going to have trouble finding downloads for older versions.

We have already deployed the IE 10 blocker, but apparently it does not work as advertised.

Tried the JavaRA program, no difference, java will still not work under IE 9.

We already have the older versions of java.

Problem is solved.
Apparently when IE 10 is installed, it alters all the shortcuts and default settings on the computer to use the 64 bit version if IE. When IE 10 is uninstalled, it does not undo those changes so the 64 bit version of IE 9 becomes the default.
Changing the default browser back to the 32 bit version of IE 9 solved the issue.
