Hey there. So my Windows 98, Internet explorer doesn't load Java and/or Active X, so I can't load a lot of web context. I have certain knowledge in computing, so I've tried some things in Internet explorer and went to Microsoft web-site for assistance. I also tried other browsers like Opera 7 , 7 and 8. Looks like it is a problem within Windows, and is not exclusively IE. Please help. :tazz:

you say it won't load them, what happens when you try? does it give you an error message? In general when you can't run those I look to malware... virus, etc....

I have Zone alarm and AVG. I did go to Symantec and other web-sites to check on-line for viruses just to make sure. I also went to the web-site Microsoft suggested to test Java. Nothing works. I uninstalled all new Java versions, and only left the one that was there originally. It improved a bit, but nothing is being complete or fully loads as far as Jave and possible Active-X based stuff goes. I did test by turning off Firewall, Antivirus and clearing cache and reloading. One more thing, I have router, which also has strong Hardware firewall that works perfectly (according to grc web-site). I cannot turn it off. My other PC, which runs XP Pro/MCE works perfectly fine, even behind this firewall.

Try this:

Right Click on Internet Explorer

Click on Security

Click on custom Level

Active X Control and plug-ins

Download signed ActiveX controls

Click Prompt

Download unsigned ActiveX controls

Click Prompt

Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as save

Click Prompt

Run ActiveX controls and Plug ins

Click Enable

Script ActiveX controls marked safe for Scripting

Click Enable

Close window

Sometimes that helps, I've just reinstalled plugins and that usually helps. :tazz:
