Win 7 32 bit / IE 9 / Clean install - wiped the hard drive and started fresh
Installed Java 7 update 10 (1.7.0_10-b18, according to the control panel Java applet) from java.com, without any errors.
When I go into the Verifying Installation page, the "Detecting Java on your computer" applet spins forever.
Removed Java, reinstalled, restarted the browser & computer multiple times, same result.
Tried it an another PC, also Win 7 32 bit / IE 9 / Clean install - same result.
What's going on?

Check the proxy settings, I suspect this is the problem.
This is often the cause when a class file can not be loaded.

If problems are still seen, view the Console output. Turn this on under the Advanced Tab.

Less likely, but possible, are firewalls, AVs, routers, etc.
