Enable Javascript in IE 4.0 !!!

  Taff36 19:31 15 May 2005

I am trying to load MS Security Updates on a computer that has Win98 and Internet Explorer 4.72.3110 (Don`t ask!!) To run the former it tells me it needs Javascript enabling. Any suggestions? I`ve looked in Control Panel>Internet and various settings but can`t spot it. Does it matter?

Sorry about that link, the l was missing of the end of html, try this click here

"Your browser supports JavaScript version 1.3"

What does that mean? (Nice link octal)

What that means is Javascript is working, if you disable Javascript and try the link again you'll see what it says.

Open Internet Explorer.

Select "View | Internet Options..." from the main menu.

Change to the "Security" tab.

Select "Custom" and click "Settings..."

Scroll down to locate Scripting.

Click Enable or disable for Active Scripting.

Click "OK"

It doesn't help you with your problem though, because it's already enabled, sorry.

I think I`ll just carry on anyway - Thanks again.

Sorted it. The computer wasn`t running Visual Basic Runtime - downloaded from microsoft and everything went fine - so far!
