Yes, we all know we can take our PC's backwards, but who want's to do that, especially on our new W7 PC's...not me, I keep all 4 of my PC's older or new updated always!

You asked for a way around it.

Work a rounds sometimes involve going backwards to get a particular function to work until the software writer creates a fix for the issue.

Have you tried downloading and installing Java7 (build 1.7.0-b147) released around July 28th?
Photobucket

I think the latest update prior to the release of Java7 was 1.6.26. You can download that at the link below.

RE: Java screw up?

Oracle, the developer of the Java programming language, released Java 6 Release 24 (Java 1.6.0_24) in February 2011 to remedy 21 vulnerabilities

As part of this security release, it appears that the ability to copy & paste from a computer's clipboard into a Java environment has been deemed a security threat, and therefore disabled.

That was to be taken care of by an up-date so maybe Java 7 will fix it.

You may consider running JavaRA and clear out all the old runtime Java files and reinstall Java,

I posted about problems with the new version on the original thread saying there was a new update. I left info on where to find a 3 page discussion on the problem and some options.
There are other problems related to the new version other than copy paste.

I updated to Java 6 Update 26. I got this message: Verified Java Version Congratulations! You have the recommended Java installed (Version 6 Update 26). Yet, when I went into my Control Panel and checked Java, it said I had Java 6 Update 24. Why isn't my computer recognizing the new update? Which version do I really have?

I have Win 7, btw.

If you need to stay with 1.6... 6u27 is latest. It has several bug fixes.
