    Hi Roomies,

    I've just updated to Jave 6.18 on Vista Business so I can run a web site I
    need to use that requires this package.

    However, I've noted that my MS Office 2007 developed a issue immediately
    after the install, with both Office Outlook and Word shortcuts on my desktop
    failing.

    I then looked at the "Programs Folder" on the "Start Bar" to see if it was
    just the desktop icons not working ...only to see that all the "MS Office
    2007" Icon in the "Start" menus had disappeared. The MS Office 2007programs
    would not activate from those blanked out (but named) locations either.

    That said, the Office Outlook icon pinned to the "Quick Start" bar still did
    exist and that icon was fully functional and Outlook did activate from it,
    but had some minor run issues and was far from being a stable initiation of
    the program.

    To resolve the conflict ... I used "Restore Point"and reverting to a date
    before the installation of Java 6.18. After doing that, I reinstalled a Java
    6.18 a 2nd time ...only to have exactly the same thing happen all over
    again. Thereafter, I used "Restore"again and have not attempted to reinstall
    a 3rd time as yet.

    It get worse.

    After posting the above issue on "Sun Forum", I hope I may get some
    feedback. 24 hrs on and after installing "Google Earth (+Chrome)", I saw that
    both the "Restored" Outlook & Work 2007 icon had once more disappeared from
    my desktop ...and the "MS Office 2007" Icon in the "Start" menus had
    disappeared once more and again no MS Office 2007programs would activate from
    those locations once more.

    Again, for a 3rd time, I used "Restore Point"and reverting to a date before
    the installation of the "Google Earth & Chrome"package.

    It has become clear to me that I have an issue with installing any package
    and for what ever reason, after any install, MS Office 2007 is conflicted by
    those attempted instalations.

    Could some let me know if there is:

    1.) A know issue? ....or

    2.) ...Has anyone else come across these sorts of conflict before please?
    ...and

    3.) Can you recommend a fix for them?

    Thank you.

    You've tried restoring back, but it's not clear if you tried to repair /
    re-install Office AFTER installing the Java update.

    Worth a shot.
