Disable prompt for "This Website wants to install the following Add-on: Java on Windows 7 x64 SP1 IE 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this-Didnt see any forum or I missed it for Internet Explorer.

    Here is my problem,  We have uses that are running a webpage that is trying to install an older version of Java, The workstation has the latest version of Java, BUT the webpage seems not to care, and wants to put a older version.

    Is there a way I can disable this:

    "This website wants to install the following add-on: 'Java SE Runtime Environment.....'.

    We have uses that will click on the Install button, and thus compromising the workstation.

    Thanks.

  • Hi usgrcm,

    It sounds like the Java add-on is necessary to get into the specific website .

    I am afraid you would have to add it to the restrict sites to forbid it from installing the add-on or install the old version of Java add-ons for all the machines to get into this website .
    Usually ,the new Java verion should be compatible with the old version .We also can connect the website for support .

    Best regards

  • Hi usgrcm,

    This is a security feature if IE and is not tied to whether or not you have a sight “allowed” to use an add-on.  It behaves in this manor to help protect you against malware. Disabling this notification is not a good choice .

    Have you tried to reinstall the Java software to have a check ?
    There is a possibility the present installation has corrupted .Please restart the machine after reinstalling the software.

    "BUT the webpage seems not to care, and wants to put a older version."
    We can try to install the old version to have a check.

    Best regards

  • I don't want the user to prompted at all.  We control Java through SCCM, I don't want some 3rd party app trying to install it.

    Thanks

    We can try to change the security configurations or custom the level .

  • Thanks, I played around with some of the activeX settings:

    Now instead of it prompting to install an older version of Java, it reports "An add-on for this website failed to run.  Ideas on how to stop this?
