    Thank you!

    Re the Java Console, is it no longer found in the install directory (e.g., \program files\mozilla firefox\extentions)? I recall that I routinely deleted the Console-related folder from that directory whenever I upgraded to a new version and after doing so, it was gone.

    Re the Java Deployment Toolkit plugin, I simply rename the file "npdeployJava1.dll" to "npdeployJava1.bak" and on the next restart, no more Toolkit.

    Do you need to uninstall the old version, or does it overwrite that for you?

    I'd just like to point out that I'm forcing every .exe in the Java folders with EMET and it seems to run fine. I've also forced it into a Restricted sandbox with Comodo and it is also running fine (untrusted breaks it.)

    I do the same EMET within a restricted Sandboxie. No problems, it's only the installer.

    Re: Java 7

    An interesting read. I have not had Java installed in months and don't miss it and this article just reinforces my decision to keep it off.

    Re: Java 7

    Bugs are to be expected in a major release. I haven't experienced any yet and I don't really feel that Java has greatly effected my attack surface.

    Re: Java 7

    Hungry Man, you're welcome! Although the bugs only affect Apache projects, I thought it was best to inform those users about them. Take care.
