Hv to reinstall JRE Java each time an update is done to Windows


Each time a Windows (or possibly some sort of apps/security) update is pushed down
to my Win 7 (x64) & Win XP (surprised that there's still updates from the System Restore
screen) laptops, I can't login to the above website.

To fix this, will have to reinstall Java JRE.

How can I address this permanently?  Is there some sort of file that I can set to
Readonly (ie "attrib +r  file_to_protect") or any other way to address this permanently?

What error message are you getting when you attempt to login into the website? Have you checked your browser's security settings? It's possible that the updates are changing your web browser's security setting.

For example, are the cookies being allowed or blocked? See screen shot. The site tries to set three cookies when you first visit.

Chrome just 'hangs' there after keying in my credentials.

My IE8 is fine though (which in the past gave issues like Chrome &
would prompt to upgrade JRE).

So how do I allow the cookies to be set?
It's not clear how Java is involved at all in this. How do you think it is?

@sunhux If there's a JAVA applet or something on the site backend that uses leverages JAVA on the client side, take a look at your browser's JAVA settings: https://java.com/en/download/help/enable_browser.xml

Secondly, there's JAVA security settings that you can tweak in the JAVA Control Panel:

That was in the past when it prompted to reinstall JRE as my JRE somehow has an issue;
I'm assuming this round it's also a Java issue.

Anyway, just found that both my IE as well as Chrome could now login but I'm doing in
on my 3G dongle (ie no proxy etc): guess it's my company's firewall.

This round, using 3G, after login, I got an issue with the "Charting" facility which used to
work & it gave the following error:

Timeout Occured.
Please try again.
If the problem persists, please go to Internet Options->Privacy tab, click on the "Advanced" button and make sure "Override automatic cookie handling" and "Always allow session cookies" are enabled and try the Advanced Chart again OR call the helpdesk for support.

Did the above & got the Charting fixed.  I'll try on the Win XP's Chrome later

Ok, just before it plots the chart, it gave a message :
"Your Java version is outdated",

Update, Block or Later
You can try the "Later" option to see if the site works; however, it sounds like the charts have dependency on JAVA for creating the plots...
