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.
