I have found a solution to the problem of Java not working with DEP,
at least on my machine. The description including the fix and some
venting, is below. Hope it works for you!
Not only do I have a problem with Java, Windows has a problem with
From using Google, I found that Java won't work with DAP (data access
protection) turned on. So with windows as it was set up on my computer
I got it, accessing any web page with Java on it crashes Internet
So I tried to turn DAP off, but going through help, which is the only
I've found to access a lot of things in Vista, there was no choice to

internet options for turning on/off DAP in IE was not grayed out any
and I turned it off, so now I can see the animated radar map!!!
But god knows what retribution Bill Gates has in store for me in the
for turning off all his #$@&*# new security features.
