I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask for help, but I am having problems with java and Internet Explorer.

Java was running fine until one day I got a prompt telling me there was a newer version available, so I installed the newest version, well something must have gone wrong, because my browser no longer works if the page requires java,

Is Flash the same as java?

When a page uses flash it tells me "the latest adobe flash player plugin is required to view this page"

I have uninstalled flash, then reinstalled it, still nothing. When I go into "Add Ons" it says I have flash installed, but it doesn't work.

Flash works perfect in Firefox and Safari.

Could I have my Internet options messed up?
I have followed the directions from Adobe to get this working, but still nothing.

When I uninstalled Flash it also uninstalls in Firefox too, then when I reinstall it, it works great in Firefox, but it's a no go in IE.

Is there a way of deleting or uninstalling IE? And Install IE from scratch?

I'm running IE 8 Beta, I just upgraded that from IE7, I thought by updating IE it would fix my flash problems, but still no dice.

Thanks in advance for helping me.

This is NOT the right place.

Actually I don't think any of the forums on this site would be considered the right place for an IE / Microsoft / "why did a software upgrade break my system" question.

NO, Flash is NOT Java. Try if you have an issue with flash.
