Is there a virus that blocks Javascript? The reason I ask is because there are a lot of sites, particularly ones that require logins (such as Hotmail) don't work (I just get a "Page Cannot Be Displayed" message). Out of curiosity, I tried to log in to Hotmail via vtunnel.com (an anonymous proxy) and I got the following message:

"JavaScript required to sign in

Windows Live ID requires JavaScript to sign in. This web browser either does not support JavaScript, or scripts are being blocked.

To find out whether your browser supports JavaScript, or to allow scripts, see the browser's online help."

A couple of other sites have mentioned that I do not have Javascript enabled. Yet, I downloaded the newest version of Java and all my browser settings (both IE and firefox) should allow it, but to no avail.

Could this be a virus, a registry issue, or what?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know about viruses blocking scripts, but there are security and privacy programs that do. What security programs do you have running on your system?
