active scripting not working

  norman.hamilton.50 20:26 10 Sep 2006

BBC site will not open to play news bulletins because Java script is not enabled.

Javascript IS enabled.

I have XP home plus Zone alarm plus Norton antivirus

why will the website not open.

This is a new problem as it worked several weeks ago without difficulty!

Thanks for the emails received so promptly..

I have downloaded both programmes to update the java but to no avail

I suspect that something is blocking access to the BBc site, but I may be wrong..

Further help very welcome!!!

Try clearing out your cookies and temp files Tools/internet options..delete cookies and temp files.

This is a common problem,but just cannot seem to remember the fix...sorry.

will have a look around.

If a Java issue...Test your java click here

Maybe your privacy setting is to high:
1. On the Tools menu, select "Internet Options..."
2. Click the "Privacy" tab
3. Ensure that the privacy level is set no higher than "Medium High"
4. Click the "OK" button

Also you may like to try the default level.

Thanks again to all you folks.. still a problem

Javascript IS enabled

Suggested downloads all installed without trouble

But to no avail

The BBC site still tells me that Java is not enabled...

Anti virus and spyware programmes are picking up nothing

Otherwise my computer is working fine!!

Any last ditch ideas?

Maybe Zonealarm is at fault here or maybe your Av,try briefly with these disabled.

If you find it is Zonealarm and cannot configure it to work with the javascript,uninstall zonealarm,reboot and reinstall.

It may be that Zonealarm has given a allow or deny access warning and has been denied.Or simply an update has triggered your problem.

Try this and if still no joy,post back.
