.I put a short cut on my desk top to toggle it on/off as needed.
The problem is that this is just the vulnerability of the month. This is actually due to a partial fix they made in October.
If you run Fire Fox you can add a plug in called NoScript. You can selectively allow or temporarily allow or deny scripts on an individual website and all the add ins that come along for the ride.
Edit: Java Scripts are Not the same as JAVA language. To fix the potential problem you must disable JAVA use in your browsers .
Or NotScript for Chrome.
OK, I followed the instructions and UNCHECKED the box in the Java Settings that said to Run Java in Browsers.
I went to the Java site and it does not think I have Java installed.
I have been to dozens of sites and all of them work like they are supposed to do.
I do run Open Office and it is Java based and it runs fine still.
Has anyone found anything that does not work with Java in the Browser disabled ?
I believe time.gov uses java by default for the animated clock.
No, those are 2 totally diferent things.
Edit: Having said that, the NoScripts I mentioned above is for Java Scripts and not for the language JAVA.
I have disabled the JAVA and the JS ( java scripts ) do still work in my browsers. Except of course if I am using Fire Fox with No Scripts active.
I went there and it wants to install an Active X control.
I did not install it.
I do not know if I let it install it, would it then have JAVA active again, or would I just have one more control installed on my machine ?
Strange - I find no Java folder on my computer. A search for javacpl.exe comes up empty.
I am also in Java never-never land. The only time I am really aware I need it is going to chatroom. Last six tries said I needed to up date it, which I did four times. Quit browser and restarted, even rebooted. Still says out of date and won't load saying "broken plugin". Toggled Preferences on and off. Still no soap.
If you change your browser agent ID so that the chat room page thinks its an ipad, java isn't needed. Fewer features however.
Open up your Windows Control Panel and it should be in there.
Here's a link telling you how to disable it in IE, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.
I just got update 11 for Java and installed it and then removed the version 10.
It says that it fixed a security problem.
Don't worry, there's more where that came from.
Nope -- not there
Not there either. Apparently, when I installed Windows 8 on my computer, I didn't install Java.
