JRE v6 and v7 no longer work in my updated 64-bit W7 HPE's 32-bit IE8.

Since last week, my JRE/Java v6u34 stopped working. My 32-bit IE8 kept asking me to run it in protected mode or not which was weird since it never did that before: ... Then, Java didn't work. So I restarted IE8 and retried again to allow it. Java applets still didn't show up (shows an empty box with X icon, JRE console doesn't even run/load). I tried my 64-bit JRE v6u35 in 64-bit IE8, no problems with Java. I tried my 32-bit Mozilla's SeaMonkey v2.12 web browser and no problems with its Java. Why is my 32-bit IE8 having problems all the sudden?

I thought maybe my JRE installation was broken. So, I uninstalled it and reinstalled with the latest v6 (u35). Same results. I tried the very latest v7u7. Same problem. I tried uninstalling Java again, running JavaRa v1.16-23-8-12 (didn't find anything to remove), resetting IE8 options and clearing its caches), etc. I also tried disabling protected mode to see if it makes any differences when reinstalling and accessing a Java applet. Nope! I looked at my IE8's addons list and noticed jp2ssv.dll was still listed like:

Name: Java(tm) Plug-In 2 SSV Helper
Publisher: Control name is not available
Type: Browser Helper Object
Version: Not available
File date:
Date last accessed: Today, September 04, 2012, 1 minute ago
Class ID: {DBC80044-A445-435B-BC74-9C25C1C588A9}
Use count: 2030
Block count: 9
File: jp2ssv.dll
Folder: C:\winstuff\JRE6\bin for a screen shot/capture.

I searched jp2ssv.dll on my computer, and it was not found. Even my uninstalled JRE removed its JRE location/folder. How do I remove this one from 32-bit IE8's addons list? Maybe this is the problem? What's going on?

Thank you in advance. :)
