Javascript

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics (More info?)

For some reason lately I cannot open links using Javascript. I don't know
how to fix this. I have something called Java Web Start on my computer but I
don't know what it is or how it got there. Under Tools in IE, there is Sun
Java Console...don't know what to do with this. Can someone please tell me
how to be able to use these links.

    I'm not quite sure what Java Web Start is, but Sun Java Console is normal.
    That's a Java thing you download (from Microsystems I believe is the name).
    It's totally safe. Microsoft use to give a Java console with their operating
    systems (Microsoft Java Machine or something ... but that's not important).
    Anyway, I just reformatted about a week ago and my Hotmail Javascript links
    didn't work already. I just did a System Restore to about the time I
    remembered it not working. Do you have System Restore? Before that, you may
    want to check the following...

    Tools > Internet Options > Security tab > Custom Level... > [Scroll to Java
    VM] > Make sure "Disable Java" isn't chosen

    Tools > Internet Options > Security tab > Custom Level... > [Scroll to
    Scripting] > Make sure those options are enabled

    Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab > [Scroll to Microsoft VM] > Make
    sure Java console enabled is checked ... (you'll have to restart the browser)

    ------
    Then again, I'm not very familiar with Java or anything but those are worth
    a shot. Also, you could always try a System Restore ... it fixed a few
    things on my computer.

    RYAN!

    I do have system restore but I've had several other problems over the last
    few weeks & would be afraid I'd take it back to where some problems were. I
    checked the other things you talked about &they were all right. But, I
    couldn't find Microsoft VM. Am I missing something?

    Hi! BB

    Java Webstart is an application to write java code or program.It only works
    when
    connected to the Internet.
    In your problem,you can't open links using Javascript. I don't catch it.What
    do you mean? Do you mean you can't access the links on web pages?

    I will be on a web page & in it there will be a link to another page. When I
    click on the link, it doesn't do anything. Along the bottom of the screen
    where it tells you what's going on, javascript......comes up every time but
    it will never open the link
