    Enabling Javascript (6)

    I've just installed I.E.6 and I'm trying to access my personal mail through one of the many services available on the web but once I log in(see picture), I cannot access my inbox folder because a messag pops up saying:<font color=red>
    Pushing a button or following a link doesn't appear to do anything.
    Our e-mail service uses javascript for many functions. If your browser is capable of handling javascript but doesn't currently have it enabled, you can still sign in, but you wont' be able to use the account effectively.
    To ensure that you can invoke all the functions within your account, please enable the javascript for the browser that you are using. </font color=red>
    How do I enable javascript?

    I would personally just add the site to my Trusted sites zone -- Tools | Internet Options | Security tab | Trusted sites | Sites button. Alternatively, just turn Active Scripting on in the Internet zone - Tools | Internet Options | Security tab | Internet | Custom level button.

    Thanks my friend,
    I've noticed in your picture you also have enabled Scripting of Java applets. What's the advantage gained by doing so?

    Well, sort of like it says... It allows you to run Java Applets through Scripts. If Microsoft is successful, Java will fade away. So far, there have not been a lot of problems with Java applets, so I don't have a lot of fear of running them.

    Could you please tell me whether there's a way to have I.E. automatically clear the history and cookies folders upon exiting the browser?

    I don't believe that IE supports VBA or Macro's yet... ;-]

    1) You can set your History to "zero" days -- but you must understand that IE counts today as day "zero" -- so today's History will not be cleared until tomorrow.

    2) You can set your cookie controls to force ALL cookies to be "Session" Cookies -- meaning that they will "Expire" once the Browser is closed. (This cannot be done using the Internet Options Control Panel, but it can be done...)

    3) You can Delete your Cookies folder and History folder through a batch (or command file) upon rebooting your computer -- they will be recreated as needed.

    4) You can manually delete the contents of either at any time through the Internet Options Control Panel.

    However, deleting your Cookies could be a real pain when using sites like the Lounge. Think before you delete.

    Re: Enabling Javascript (6)

    You're great!
    Something has come up that forces me to revisit my original question:

    Since turning Active Scripting on in the Internet zone as you advised me to , I've been able to log in and check my mail for a few days but now, after inputting my e-mail address and password, I get the following message:
    <font color=red>Your login session has expired.

    Why does my session expire? Why does my browser refuse to sign in?

    Login sessions expire and browsers refuse to sign in for two reasons.

    For your security, your Mail.com session expires a maximum of five hours after you have logged in.
    If you do not accept the cookies set on login or your computer is not configured to accept cookies, your session will expire almost immediately. We use cookies (small pieces of site information) to assist us in user authentication and in saving configuration information. Cookies are required for Mail.com email services to identify you on our system.
    If you see this message immediately after logging in, you should check the following:

    Check to see that your computer system time is accurate. Cookies are time sensitive and may not work if your computer date is incorrect by a large amount.
    Make sure that your browser is configured to accept cookies or that you agree to accept cookies during the login process.
    Turn off any third party programs or control panels that automatically reject cookies.
    Once you have reset any of the above conditions on your computer or browser, then click here to Re-login.</font color=red>
    I don't see any check box to be enabled/disabled concerning cookies in Tools/Internet Options but, in any case, why did everything run smoothly for a few days and then not, since I haven't changed any other setting in the meantime?

    For what it is worth, turning "on" Scripting will not turn "off" cookies. The Cookie controls are on the Tools | Internet Options | Privacy tab. You did not "empty" your cookie folder, did you? This would be one of the downsides of deleting all your cookies...

    Check out what your Cookie settings are (I despise the 'cookie slider', but that is a long story...). Next, add the site in question under WebSites | Edit and select Allow.

    What do you think about using such products as "Evidence Eliminator" to do the job? Is it true that such utilities might speed up the pc by getting rid of clutter and freeing up memory but have the downside of wearing the hard disk out?

    Probably fine -- I have never used it. The idea of cleaning things out probably helps a little, but it is most useful in "eliminating the evidence" of where you have been.

    It appears that neither realcomlvs.real.com nor www.funforwards.com are going to respond to your tracert -- so you will never get the "final hop".

    As for the first one, there is certainly a large jump here:

    18 441 ms 435 ms 435 ms 202.97.49.66
    19 1891 ms 1916 ms 1928 ms 202.97.51.49

    Both of those addresses appear to be owned by the same people:

    inetnum: 202.97.32.0 - 202.97.63.255
    netname: CHINANET-BB

    There may be a problem with the connection between those two hops -- or they my suffer from excessive congestion.

    Re: Enabling Javascript (6)

    Not only are you intelligent, you're also insightful; yes, I did empty my cookies folder because it's one of the ways I was trying to solve a problem I have: currently I cannot access a lot of American websites throughout most of the day. I've tried to understand what's happening by doing a tracert from the MSDos prompt for some of the sites I can't access.
    I've attached it if you're curious and would like to take a look. Maybe you can tell me what's wrong.
