    Java Script is not enabled message. (6.0 XP SP2)

    Hi,

    I have been notified by a web page that Java Script is not enabled; it is not the first time I have run across a message like this. I know I had the settings correct before I had to install a new hard drive and reload XP but now I am not sure how to correct it.

    Also, I have a Sun Java console enabled - are those two different programs from two different companies. Please see screenshot.

    Thanks in advance for your great assistance. <img src=/S/bow.gif border=0 alt=bow width=15 height=15>

    Tools>Internet Options>Security Tab. Select one of the zones and then click on Custom Level. Scroll down to the Scripting section (near the bottom). From here, you can enable or disable scripting.

    As for the different versions of Java, I am using Sun's version and have unchecked everything under the Microsoft VM.

    Hi John,

    Once again, you are here to assist! Scripting was already enabled. I did uncheck everything under Microsoft VM.

    I also went to the Sun Java web page where there is a test page to see if Java is working and it was fine.

    I went back to the original web page with the problem (Java applet is not enabled error) and the error still appears. I did restart the computer first.

    Question: Are there certain settings for Sun Java I should check?

    Many, many thanks, again!

    Other than the similarity in the name 'Java', the Java programming langugae is not related to JavaScript. The settings you posted are for applets written in with Java not JavaScript. Which zone did you check for scripting? Is this the same zone as the site you are accessing?

    Hi Joe,

    I think I was checking the wrong place. Please see attachment and tell me if this is where I should have enabled scripting (it was not enabled earlier.)

    Thanks.

    I've never seen that one before. Must be new in SP2. In previous versions of IE, there were more general categories, such as Allow scripting of ActiveX controls, perhaps differentiating between signed and unsigned.

    That is 3 lines out of 15 or lines. It has NOT changed in SP2.

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

    I have never seen that either! Not on my WinXPsp1 boxes...
