I'm having intermitent problems with what I guess is javascript. For example, when I go to check details on a potential new download from Windows Update, I 'expand' (click on the plus sign) for a particular update, and go to the 'details' hyperlink (?), nothing at all happens. In the bottom left hand corner, in the status bar, I will get a message like this:
javascript:parent.fnDisplayDetails(“5”); The numeral changes depending upon the particular update. I've also gotten something similar to the below on another website:
javascript:gallery_popup (more followed, I can't remember it)
I know it's not the website because if I go to a different computer, it doesn't happen. In addition, it's not just the Windows Update site I have problems with, I have experienced this with other websites as well.
I've checked that Javascript is enabled, and it is. I'm updated with the latest updates. I'm using Windows XP Pro, IE6
I've tried to uninstall IE6 (following MS directions) and while it appears to do something, it doesn't really uninstall.
I'm not sure what to do at this point. I am NOT a developer, pretty much a novice, but I figured this is the best site to get a good answer.
One of the sites this happens to me on is this:
http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us
Other hyperlinks within the same website will work, but not the 'details'
Help!!
Thank you!
