Installed 64 bit Java for Internet Explorer. IE has "Enhanced Protected Mode" and "64-bit Processes for Enhanced Protected Mode" both enabled, and no "iexplore.exe *32" processes are running.
Detecting Java times out. Neither does the script at Javatester work. The auto detect driver at Geforce actually hangs the tab, and there is no crash dialog for it. The exceptions site list in the java CP has been edited with "http://javatester.org", "https://www.java.com/" and "http://www.geforce.com/drivers" as has the trusted sites tab in the IE Security tab.
Anyone else with similar?

- Windows Version 8.1 Pro
- Java Ver 8 Update 60
- Defender Real Time Protect turned on
- Java(tm) Plug-In 2 SSV Helper  Status  Incompatible   64-bit
- Java(tm) Plug-In 1 SSV Helper  Status  Incompatible   64-bit
- Deployment Toolkit [Oracle] 64 bit enabled but not loaded
  • What version of Windows? What version of Java? Do other 64-bit IE plugins work? Do you have any anti-malware or antivirus software on your system that tries to scan your web browser? Sep 22, 2015 at 13:53
  • Question with requested details updated. No AV or MW other than Defender. Other loaded add-ons are 32 & 64 bit. Sep 23, 2015 at 7:26

Try unistalling 64-bit Java and install 32-bit version of latest Java instead. I had issues in otherwise 64-bit system trying to get IE11 and Java to communicate. Issue was fixed after I installed 32-bit version of Java.
