My Google Chrome Version is 32.0.1700.76 m (Google Chrome is up to date).

Operating System : Windows 8.1 (Desktop)


I just installed the latest version of Java but still cannot see the Rainbow Text on my own website at:


It says "Application Blocked by Security Settings". I checked Security Settings in Chrome browser. It clearly ALLOWS Java. The same problem is happening with Internet Explorer (latest version). Rainbow Text is not visible, same error message, and in Security Settings of IE Java is clearly ALLOWED. I also tried  resetting Chrome browser to its original/default settings. But that also did not help.

I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 from Windows XP. With Windows XP, the same rainbow text was visible with both browsers.

My suspicion is Windows Security Settings (or McAfee's - my current anti-virus) is blocking Java. But how to be certain and how to fix it?

Also the background music of the site is NOT playing with either browser in the new computer running Windows 8.1. The Windows Media Player plug-in has been installed and I am not getting any prompt/notification why the music is not playing. It is just not playing. Again the music used to play in my old computer running Windows XP.

Some knowledgeable person please give me step-by-step instructions how to troubleshoot and fix the problem. I am 73 years old and just have a working knowledge of computers! Troubleshooting on my own is beyond my expertise.

Thank you.

Control Panel in Windows 8.1

Open Control Panel by swiping in from the right edge of the screen, tapping Search (or if you're using a mouse, pointing to the upper-right corner of the screen, moving the mouse pointer down, and then clicking Search), entering Control Panel in the search box, and then tapping or clicking Control Panel.


Once Control Panel is open, double-click on the Java icon > Security tab and use the slider to set security to Medium.

BTW, using Java is an unnecessary security risk...especially using older versions which have vulnerabilities that malicious sites can use to exploit and infect your system.

Although, Java is commonly used in business environments and many VPN providers still use it, the average user does not need to install Java software.

I recommend just uninstalling Java if you don't use it. How to Completely Remove Java Using JavaRa
