    Some web pages say "Done" but with errors: When i doubled clicked the icon to try and find out what this was all about. It said among other things, I had needed AJAX to view everything. I don't understand what this means?

    AJAX is an acronym for Asynchronous Javascript and HTML. You need a relatively recent browser (IE 7, Firefox 1.5+, etc.). AJAX is a DHTML environment based upon the xmlhttprequest Javascript function. It's used by Gmail and Google Maps, etc. It has nothing to do with Java or Flash.

    Do you have javascript enabled in your browser?

    As AJAX uses javascript to interact with the end-user.

    If enabled, are there any javascript errors being reported in the status bar at the bottom of IE? if so download and install Aptana (www.aptana.com) web IDE, it comes with javascript debugging tools for IE and FireFox. It should tell you exactly what is happening with the Jscript when the error occurs.
