    Applets won't show (Win XP SP1)

    Hello all,

    I find that when visiting certain sites (like games on Yahoo), the applets do not show. I simply get a blank page with that little icon in the corner. My security settings are set at default as are my privacy settings. Any clue what's causing this? It started to happen after I had to wipe my hard drive and reinstalled everything.

    TIA,
    RR

    Do you have any script blockers or and anti-spyware running? These could be blocking the script code from running.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Well, I have ZoneAlarm and AVG anti-virus running. I'll disable them and see what happens...

    On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
    Click the Advanced tab, and then verify that the Show Pictures check box is selected under Multimedia.
    Click OK.

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, the "show picture" is checked. Dang.

    I disabled Zonealarm and AVG. No change in the problem and no anti-spyware running. Any suggestions by anyone is still appreciated.

    Can you post a specific URL?

    Hey Joe,

    I assume you mean a URL where the applet doesn't seem to work. Try this one: http://zone.msn.com/en/alchemy/game.htm
    and play the online game of "Alchemy."

    Or....go here: http://games.yahoo.com/
    Go to the card game "Euchre." This requires a Yahoo account, so if you don't have one, the first URL will have to do.

    Thanks,
    RR

    Well Alchemy requires Java. Are you sure you have a Java VM installed?

    Well Joe, I hate to show my ignorance, but how would I check to see if Java VM is installed?

    Start | Run. Then type in "CMD" without the quotation marks. Then type in JVIEW. This will check for the MS Java VM. If it is not installed then you should go to the Sun Java site and download their VM. Because of a court decision, MS can no longer enhance their Java VM. Sun's VM is the one to use.

    You're welcome. Do you mean that installing the Sun VM fixed it?
