Javascript will not employ itself. Read other posts. Followed advice, i.e checked all appropriate boxes in security under internet options. Any further help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I just installed Java VM off latest PC World. Might be worth a try, depending on your Operating System.

Read up on the issues here (http://www.cnet.com/software/0-3227883-8-8580844-3.html)

Did this occur since upgrading to IE6 ?

Yes. Re-instal after computer crash. I'll go and read.

Java and Javascript are two different beasts.

If you wan't Javascript enabled sites to display in your browser then go to Tools/Security/Custom Level/Scripting/Active Scripting < Enabled >


Same path but final option /Allow paste operations via script < Enabled >

By the way, you can enable certain Java functionality by altering a feature in the same area as well. You'll find it underneath the second feature noted above.

Good luck ......................................

Hi Wonda Ing,

I had a problem with javascript a few months ago whereby I couldn't log into my Bank's login page using IE6!

I was lucky that my other browser,Mozilla didn't share this problem!

Then when the update SP1for IE came out,I installed it and has overcome the problem?

Might be worth a try if all else fails(assuming of coarse that you don't already have that update?)


PS; OS W98.
