javascript links not working HELP!

I am running xp home . I had my computer serviced and since have not been able to pay certain bills online because I the computer won't let me use any of the javascript links. I was asked by the person that serviced my computer to download sun java but I already have it in my system and it is telling me it is working as it should. also have a hp running 2000 which he also seviced and I am having the same problem with it, I cannot open anything that has a javascript link. Please HELP! Also on my xp home I cannot open up system restore, when I try it gives me a blank page. it was working before I had it serviced...any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

javascript

In reply to: javascript, still not happening

Hi,
I can remember this happening to me and posting on these forums. I was told to download and run a program called "iefix". If you search on google for it, I think it should be easy to find a download. (Providing you are using Internet Explorer). I would not be able to tell you if it works though. There was a problem running it for me but it should work for you.

However, what did work for me was using Netscape Navigator. Then later, when I reformatted my hard drive, the links worked in internet explorer too.
Hope this Helps

tainosoul, Go to the link below and download the "Microsoft Virtual Machine File 1" first then restart your computer. Then go back to the same link and download the "Microsoft Virtual Machine File 3" and restart your computer. You must download the File 1 first and restart your computer then download File 3 and restart your computer. Hopefully it will correct your problem on the Windows XP machine. As far as the Windows 2000 machine I'm not familiar with Windows 2000 but at the link below under "Installation Tips" there is some info.

What did he do to your computer?

In reply to: javascript links not working HELP!

Saying it was serviced really doesn't tell much. It might help people to help you if we knew what was done.
