My friend has IE v 6.0 and has enabled active scripting and Java applets and allow paste operation via scripting. My friend runs Windows XP Home edition with SP2.
My friend also has problems with her bank account site which also states that Java scripting should be enabled.
I suspect that her version of IE v.6 may be corrupted but could there be any other reason? If it is corruption, what is the best way to reinstall IE 6.0? My friend does not have any original set-up discs.
... can your link be loaded from your computer and from my computer but not from my friend's computer?
I accept that VOG has far more knowledge than me but I'm not convinced that downloading from the Java site will help if, indeed, IE v 6.0 is corrupted in some way.
Would it be best to re-install IE 6.0 first of all?? If you do a re-install of IE from the Microsoft site, do you have to delete the existing version of IE first of all. (Apologies if this is on the MS site - I've not looked there yet!!)
I suggest you install Microsoft Virtual machine which I find better, (and works with every Java site I have encountered. I installed Sun Java once, but removed it as for me the MS version worked better). Microsoft Virtual machine used to be included with a windows installation, but due to a legal wrangle, it had to be left out in XP. However, you can get it here:
After installation: Open Internet Explorer, click on Tools menu on the top bar, select Internet Options, Advanced tab, scroll down to "JIT compiler for virtual machine enabled". Ensure this ticked and re-boot.
