Default Java for Browsers setting for IE can be changed even on Windows server 2008

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      x86
    • OS:
      windows_2008

      Description

      OS: Windows Server 2008
      Java: 6u18

      In 6u10 or later, 'Default Java for Browsers' checkbox for IE in Java Control Panel
      is gray-out and keeps user from disabling it, if running Windows is Vista or later.
      It is documented in 6u10 Update Release Note.

          http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/6u10.html

      But this checkbox can be toggled by hitting space-key.
      And if logon account is an 'administrator', he can actually disable Java plugin.

      This is harmless since it is re-enabled, but might confuse user.
      The checkbox should be removed or completely disabled.
