Try clicking that missing plugin icon and giving it permission to check your machine.

Either way, I would delete and update like I mentioned since it looks like your install is borked. :)
It says Preference Pane cannot be removed. I suppose updating it may help anyways?

Yes.... just DL and install the update over top and that should fix it.

If it does not, try deleting the file JavaAppletPlugin.plugin from the folder below then reinstall Java.


To get there open Finder then click the Go menu the Go to folder and paste this path in then hit enter.

Code:
/Library/Internet Plug-Ins
