cisco clientless ssl vpn rdp Not working after installing local Printer

I login to our office terminal server via our Cisco client-less SSL vpn. I just installed an HP Officejet 4500 printer on my laptop and now that connection no longer works. I am getting this Java error (screen shot attached) I don't know how installing this printer and driver would have effected this VPN login but it has. I unplugged the printer, removed and reinstalled JAVA even did a system restore and still can't get the VPN to connect

I think this is a JAVA update issue.

you can do two things:

1. use internet explorer and use the activeX controle at the ASA
2. go to control panel -> java -> security settings -> medium.

I found the Security settings for Java and set it to Medium, what did you mean by your #1
Henk van AchterbergSr. Technical ConsultantCommented:
if you use Internet Explorer to log in to the ASA portal than you will get an activeX plugin to load instead of the Java plugin.

Does lowering the Java security help btw?

I am using IE and no lowering that security level didn't change anything. I still don't understand how installing a printer could cause this problem
Axis52401Security AnalystAuthor Commented:
I even tried this on a seperate laptop here, installing that same printer casued the same problem, on that laptop I can no longer connect to the SSL VPN through the browser
Henk van AchterbergSr. Technical ConsultantCommented:
It has certainly has something to do with Java (or a java update, maybe in the printer package).

Can you uninstall java and try and older version of java (like version 7 without updates) just to test (I do not recommend running an older version of Java permanently!).

where do I get an older version of java to test that?
