How do I remove (not disable) Java Plugin 2 SSV helper

I see under Manage Add Ons, that Java(tm) Plug-In 2 SSV Helper is listed as enabled. Strangely, when I look at the details, the dll is pointed to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin but there is no such folder!

How do I get rid of the add on rather than just disable it? I have uninstalled Java from the PC earlier.

This is a Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q885 PC with Win7 Ultimate 64 bit.

Delete registry settings and IE will no longer load this plugin. Actually it is not loaded anyway because jp2ssv.dll does not exist.

Path in registry should be something like

 


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{DBC80044-A445-435b-BC74-9C25C1C588A9}]
@="Java(tm) Plug-In 2 SSV Helper"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{DBC80044-A445-435b-BC74-9C25C1C588A9}\InprocServer32]
@="C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jre6\\bin\\jp2ssv.dll"
"ThreadingModel"="Apartment"

 

Regards.

Hey RPMM,

 

You could try removing all references to the Class ID for the Java(tm) Plug-In 2 SSV Helper from the registry. You can get the Class ID information by:

·        Open Internet Explorer

·        Click Tools

·        Click Manage add-ons

·        Right click Java(tm) Plug-In 2 SSV Helper

·        Click More information

 

Modifying REGISTRY settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of REGISTRY settings can be solved. Modifications of these settings are at your own risk.

 

It is always a good idea to back up your registry before making any alterations to it:

Back up the registry

 

To search the registry for the specific Class ID:

·        Click Start

·        Type regedit

·        Press Enter on your keyboard

·        Click Computer in the left column

·        Click Edit

·        Click Find…

·        Type/paste the Class ID into the Find what: field

·        Click Find Next

 

Hope that helps, look forward to hearing back from you.
