    Unhappy Java Applet problems

    First off I am not a computer programmer or anything - just a simple consumer who needs some help from all you clever people out there

    As of yesterday morning I seem to have lost the ability to view or access anything on the internet or elsewhere which uses Java applets. This includes my online banking and other essential sites. On the internet I click on the link and nothing at all happens. On internal files - including MS XP System Restore which was my first port of call - I click on the relevant link and a blank screen comes up.

    The only thing I have done recently is to install a number of Anti Adware/Spyware programmes (no uninstalled) as I have been bombarded by Advertising SPAM recently but that's another problem.

    Can anyone help?? I have just downloaded the Java 2 platform but that makes no difference.

    Appreciate any assistance.

    Most banking sites don't use java on them. They may use javascript. Are you sure you don't mean javascript? What browser are you using? Can you give us some examples of the sites that you say don't work properly?

    more info

    Hi,

    Yes you are write. I should have said Javascript. (told you I was an amateur)... Try www.victorchandler.com and click on any of the links - horse racing for example. When I click on it aboslutely nothing happens. As I say, I have tried to go to System REstore (XP Home) and that just comes up as a blank screen.

    Thanks

    Since you never told me what browser you were using, I'm going to assume you are using IE.

    Tools Menu>Internet Options>Security Tab>Click on the first icon>Click on 'Custom Level' button>Find Scripting>Check to see if 'Active Scripting' is enabled'>Enable it if it isn't, click ok, ok again, and close and restart your browser.

    Thanks but I'm afraid that doesn't work either. I'm getting close to the - back everything up and reinstall the system scenario.

    Okay now do you have any firewall or security software on your system?

    Yes I do but it made no difference before. I should say that I have actually cured the problem simply by reinstalling XP. It looks as if maybe one of the anti spyware programmes I had loaded up had ripped something out by mistake. Reinstalling put it all back. Still have the SPAM ad emails but a small price to pay..........................
