How to detect browser settings?

I got a strange requirement from my client to write a script (in Java, JSP, Javascript or whatever applicable for their JSP application) to check browser settings (IE) to see if it's configured as they need. Here are some settings it has to check:
- Browser version
- JVM version
- Cache Settings
- Font settings
- Security Settings: ActiveX control and plug-in?
- ...

and other system settings like Regional settings, Folder Options,...

Please let me know how to deal with this?
Thanks in advance.

Chinh, please do not cross-post the same question in more than one forum.
