Hi,

I am having a problem with IE and javascript. I am not sure what has happened as web pages which I could previously view okay, I am now having problems with. For example, on the MLB websites, the pages don't look like they used to and where java is used eg to purchase tickets, when I click, nothing happens.

Any thoughts?

Java and javascript are 2 different things.
from BC's Glossary

Java
A programming language created by Sun Microsystems. The great advantage to this language is that source code for java programs can be easily made to run on multiple operating systems with little effort.

Java Script
A java script is a small java program embedded in a web page that you may visit. The instructs contained in the java script are executed on the computer running it, rather than being executed by the web server itself.

How do I clear the Java cache?

And be sure you have the lates version of Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE)

Let's clear the cache,cookies and temp files. You did clear the Java cache earlier?



Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

Just fror the sake of it as I am out of ideas on the main issue. Have you recently scanned for malware? When was the last time the Hard Drive was defragmented?

Hi, Boopme

I scan for malware on a weekly basis but haven't defragged for some time so will give that a bash.


cheers
