    Java 7 Error Message Upon IE Start

    879031
      Hello. New to the forums but I wanted to present this to others in case they have a fix.

      We pushed out the latest Java update to our client base and it seems that nearly ALL Windows 7 machines receive a ssvagent.exe error every time they launch Internet Explorer. We lock down all the workstations to run as non-admin so we receive the following error:

      *"C:\PROGRA~1\Java\jre7\bin\ssvagent.exe*

      *This program is blocked by group policy."*

      We've been telling clients that by resetting the browser to defaults, which disables the Java add-on in IE, the error goes away. However, there may be clients who need this applet ENabled. We also found that running IE as the admin prompts us to run the ssvagent.exe program and after which, the non-admin user has no additional pop-ups in IE/the applet is showing as Enabled in the Add-In Manager.

      We've never had a Java problem in the past when it came to admin vs. non-admin. Again, it seems to ONLY be on Win7 machines running as non-admin.

      Any suggestions other than disabling this add-in or logging in to each machine with administrator privileges?

      Thanks!
