Re: Java

I think it only gives some error message (the OP is very vague about it) if you visit a page that contains a Java applet. If that's the case, the OP visits such a site. Can happen.

Answer
Java and Internet Explorer

Easy work-around: If it works in Firefox or Chrome, use those for the few sites that still use Java. Java for use in a browser is getting outdated, as is Flash.

https://www.google.com/search?q=java+internet+explorer+11+not+working shows the problem isn't about the recent version 8 update 60, but much older. If any of the hits leads you to a solution, consider yourself lucky.
