Why are the disable Java check box and security slider not in the Control Panel after installing Java 7 update 10 (7u10) and above?
This article applies to:
After installation, the checkbox to enable/disable Java and the security level slider do not appear in the Java Control Panel Security tab.
This can occur with 7u10 and above.
This is due to a conflict that Java 7u10 and above have with standalone installations of JavaFX.
Example: If Java 7u5 and JavaFX 2.1.1 are installed and if Java is updated to 7u11, the Java Control Panel does not show the checkbox or security slider.
To resolve this issue it is recommended to uninstall all versions of Java and JavaFX before installing Java 7u10 and above.
Please follow the steps below for resolving this issue.
