I just removed java totally and that seems to have cleared up all the issues I had with Comcast websites. I guess Comcast websites do not like Java. I also figured Java really isn't needed to run the programs I got on my computer anyways.
Solved! Go to Solution.

HTML is the basic language for most web pages.
It is recommended to disable Java due to security issues.
Lots of talk on the web about this for Java. There is concern that hackers can use security flaws in Java to run malicious software on a computer.

Any pages or elements of pages that rely on Java will not function / render / appear correctly. Actually more stuff relies on Flash these days than Java. You would have to browse around and see how bad things appear to be and then decide if you can live without it.

FWIW some Wikipedia pages ask to run JAVA but I don't let them. The pages still work. It appears to me that there is one section of the page that wants to use Java but it still looks and loads okay.
And FoxNews.com seems to load quicker and smoother with Java disabled in IE9.

I have checked every site I regularly go to and there isn't a single issue now that I uninstalled java 32 and 64 bit and disabled deployment toolkit. In fact, I believe my computer runs a little faster now . Thanks for all your help guys and feedback.
