Norton Family and Java 7 - When is this going to be fixed?

Hi,

When is the bug going to get fixed that prevents Java 7 from running when Norton Family is installed?

I see the problem was reported as early as May 30th of last year...

http://community.norton.com/t5/Norton-Family/Norton-Safety-Minder-won-t-let-Java-run/m-p/728064#M10894

It is still a problem!

Norton Family 2.6.0.52

Win 7 32 bit clean install with updates applied

IE 9

Java 7 update 10

With NF installed, the Java verification page won't even run.

As soon as I uninstall NF, it runs.

PLEASE FIX THIS ALREADY!!!

Thank you.

Re: Norton Family and Java 7 - When is this going to be fixed?

I am responsible for 4 computer labs (each lab has its own Norton Account) with a total of 25 PC's that the kids use to play games and run educational software in an after school program.

Most of the software is written in Java.

When I upgraded to the latest version of Norton Family, Java 7 stopped working.

Oh joy!

I now have to remove Java 7 and replace it with Java 6 update 38.

On 25 PC's.

As if I have nothing else to do.

Java 6 is only going to be supported until February 2013.
