Hello, here's my situation.  I had to swap computer at work, and now, with the new computer, I have having this issue.  When I go change the settings in the "Java Control Panel" and click "OK" a pop-up message tells be that...Please read the message in the screenshot;
Error - Browser
I do not see what the browser has to do with this.  I can understand that I may not have sufficient Admin permissions (they have tighten up on the permissions), yet my co-worker is able to make changes to his "Java Control Panel."  So what browser settings should any of the browser I have installed need; IE, Firefox and G Chrome?

What are you clicking on in the Java control panel applet that brings that up?  Which version of Java is it?  Perhaps it is not detecting your browsers properly - which could be if it's an older version perhaps.

The main thing is to try this URL from your various browsers to confirm Java is actually working OK:  http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp

Your Java Control Panel is missing the Update tab.  
Perhaps as cantoris has suggested your version is old.  
Or perhaps that PC is blocked by GPO from changing various settings.
Try uninstalling Java and then installing the latest version.

A missing update tab is seen if you are not an administrator of your PC.

Got it solved.  I can't remember the exact solution.  The SQL Developer has a config file that needed the java path.  Then I have the SetJavaHome in the system variable, and I have the Java_Home set in the User variable.
Thanks
