    Resolved [RESOLVED] Java Icon Disappeared From Control Panel

    I have just updated my Java from Java Version 7 Update 9 to Java Version 7 Update 10.

    I now find that the Java icon has disappeared from my Control Panel.

    Any help please.

    Running Windows XP Home SP3 fully updated via Windows Update.

    Can't say that I've ever seen a Java icon in control panel. How certain are you that you had one?

    You can search your Windows Folder for *.cpl to find all control panel icons.

    Steve, Java installs a .cpl in Control Panel and you use it to configure update schedule, etc.

    PinguJohn, are you in "Classic View" in Control Panel?

    Hi Steve, I have always had a Java icon in Control Panel until I updated to Java 7 Update 10.

    Hi falcon, yes I am in "Clasic View" in Control Panel.

    I still see the Java.cpl.

    Did you install the JRE or the JDK?

    Did you uninstall the previous versions?

    I would try uninstalling the old Java version and then re-installing the latest Java.
    Search for javacpl.exe. If you find it, you can try the other suggestions here: Adding or removing icons in Windows Control Panel.

    I installed the JRE

    I did not uninstall the previous version, I updated it via the java.com website using the Verify Java Version option.

    Ah ok. I normally uninstall the older version first. And then I install using the offline installer.

    Uninstalled and then reinstalled Java 7 Update 10 using the offline installer from the link provided by Midknyte.

    Success, Java icon back in Control Panel.

    Interesting point, Java Uninstaller and System Restore both reported uninstalling Java 7 Update 9 when it was Java 7 Update 10 that I was uninstalling.
