Small problem.

Javascript is in the browsers and can't be added.

Firefox has such and I just looked at IE6 to be sure and sure enough you can enable Javascript in Tools, Options.

XP with SP@ new dowes

In reply to: Small problem.

not have Microsofts Java, thus one is required to download Java from the Sun or?? site, in order to go to sites using javascript..

Have done it a few times before with info provided by Grif.

I think that one of us is confused. Probably me because I am older.

Java is not Javascript.

"One of these things is not like the others,"

While MS Java is noteworthy it was turfed years ago. So long ago that any site that required it should have updated to Sun's JAVA by now.

But I simply wanted the link

In reply to: Java is not Javascript.

to the "latest" correct, no malware , Sun Javascript to install into XP Home.

Grif always seems to have a safe link and species the correct version to install. Thus search [with virtually doesn't work for me] might take me to an incorrect older version.

Yep, 'bob b's' Link Is Correct Except....

In reply to: Perhaps

...the newest version of Java, which was released this week, is now Update 10. Use the same link but select for the JRE Update 10.

The updated Windows Script Engine provided is also a good one to install.

Hope this helps.
