I tried making a new Windows administrator account and its 32-bit IE8's JRE worked! So, it is something wrong with my three years old account and/or its IE8. Does JRE have a reset all settings option? I only can find reset for specific features, but not everything. Is there an external full uninstaller and cleaner too? :(
I also scanned for possible malwares, but found nothing.
I think you are having the same issue I've been working on. I just posted about this here:
Newer JREs are not registering old JRE ClassIDs for all users
You can try the following.
* On a working user, export the key HKCU\Software\Classes\CLSID. Then import it for a failing user. Its not a real pretty solution. You should be able to narrow down exactly which subkey is needed by using Process Monitor or looking at your application HTML code where the JRE object is being called.
* If you can change the code, look for the OBJECT or EMBED tags and look what CLSID they are referencing. Change that CLSID to "8AD9C840-044E-11D1-B3E9-00805F499D93" allow it to work with the latest Oracle/Sun JRE installed.
