that you are using IE9? If your Windows 7 OS is uptodate with all the Windows Updates then you are likely now using IE10.
If so then it is possible the web site you frequent hasn't yet allowed for any differences in IE9/IE 10.
What happens if you use another browser, eg Firefox or Google Chrome?
I originally posted this on the 'Computer Help' forum but I don't think that was the right place to post it, so I hope this is OK! I am using Windows 7 and IE9.
One of the websites which I've used regularly for a few years has recently started denying me access, giving me the messages: "Sorry, the Java plug-in with your web browser is not enabled" and "This website wants to run the following add-ons: 'Java SE Runtime Environment 7 Update 45' from Oracle America Inc'". I have just downloaded the most recent Java update (version 7, update 45, as it says) and I have checked in 'Tools, Manage add-ons' and Oracle add-ons are definitely enabled. But are plug-ins the same as add-ons?? Please excuse my ignorance but I'm not sure!
I don't know whether or not to try to install these add-ons through the site that I've been using. I've read that it may be unsafe to install things through other sites, but I've looked on the Java website and I can't find any way of installing them through their site. Please help! Thanks.
