Hello. If somebody has a minute, I think I inadvertantly deleted the jre on my hard drive that IE 6 uses to load applets and the java console. I already have the jre 5 from sdk 5 that I use for development. The reason for this mess was that I was clearing out junk from my harddrive and I saw a previous version of the jre in programs so I removed it (since I have the jre 5) but now it seems that IE was using it. Is there a way I can get IE to point to the jre 5 I have installed from the sdk as opposed to the one that I presume was installed with IE? I've checked all the Internet options for Java in the browser so I think it's looking in a place where the earlier jre was located before I removed it. Thank you very much for reading this and for your time.

In your system settings, there should be a control panel called "Java Plugin". In there go to the "Extended" tab, and there should be a menu listing all the available JDK/JRE installations on your machine. Choose one that still exists

Hello Ulf. Thank you very much for the advice. When I went to control panel to check the java plug-in, the Java icon was pointing to a now deleted file (thanks again to yesterdays purge). Seeing that, I downloaded the latest jre again from Sun. Now I can leave it again as is (the browser is now loading applets and the java console again) or I might tinker with it like you suggest to get it to see the other jre installed from the sdk in java_home. It seems kinda weird to be running two jre's. Thank you again.

I think reinstall your jdk1.5 will resolve the problems.
