Problem:
Users would launch JAVA the first time on a windows 2008 box
They would have a roaming profile
The application would launch first time.
They would log off
After the user logs off (and the ntuser.dat gets updated)
Java would no longer launch for anything / no control panel / no apps /
no .jar files opening (regardless of java version)

Solution:
Apparently there is an issue with JAVA and the Clear type / font stuff
on windows 2008.
Deleting the users HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop registry settings - (on
logon with appsense) > resulted in the java apps working every
time....woot
