Hi guys. I'm new here and a complete technical luddite.

For the past few months I've been having problems with Internet Explorer. If I click on an icon/picture on some websites, nothing happens except that in the bottom left of my screen I get the word Javascript and a yellow warning triangle.

So I installed Netscape Navigator and went to the same sites. If I click on those icons, Navigator closes down.

Any advice welcome!

Welcome to TSG Zadie.

First, could you post a copy of the HijackThis Scanlog following the directions here:

http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/

Next, go to this site and let me know if you see the words "Yes, if you can read this you are JavaScript Enabled"....

http://www.bodo.com/javame.htm

And lastly, give us some addresses and specific directions on how to click on the images that are producing that message.

For example, what is the address of the site(s) where they occur. And what is the address you see if you right click on one of those images and select "Properties"? You can copy/paste the address url you see there.

Here is the hijack scan

Logfile of HijackThis v1.95.0
Scan saved at 19:39:40, on 07/07/2003
Platform: Windows ME (Win9x 4.90.3000)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP1 (6.00.2800.1106)

Running processes:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\KERNEL32.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSGSRV32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SPOOL32.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MPREXE.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSTASK.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SSDPSRV.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\mmtask.tsk
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\RESTORE\STMGR.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\PTSNOOP.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\TASKMON.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SYSTRAY.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WMIEXE.EXE
C:\PROGRAM FILES\DIRECTCD\DIRECTCD.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\LOADQM.EXE
C:\PROGRAM FILES\REAL\REALJUKEBOX\TSYSTRAY.EXE

And according to the other site I am java enabled.

Here are a few [of the very many] examples that don’t work:

http://www.femail.co.uk/pages/live/...l?in_page_id=25 [but can’t open the page ‘See these celebrity splits’]

http://www.thetrainlinestore.com/main16.asp [but can’t click on the icon for the prize draw]

http://www.catslikefelix.com/ [but can’t click on the ‘enter’ button]

So, so often I see this little yellow warning triangle in the bottom left of my screen. I sometimes think that it might be because I upgraded from IE5 to IE6 a few months ago. But that doesn’t explain NN crashing.


Thanks so much

Okedoke, the first link I couldn't get to because it was not a full url, but a "truncated" one. This happens when you do a direct copy/paste of long urls rather than a "right click > copy url". But no matter, I can see from the other two that both these urls call for Pop-up javascript Windows.

So you may not be getting them, either because you have a damaged javascript installation, or a pop-up or javascript filter running.

You did not post the full HijackThis ScanLog, please give that another run and with the log open click Edit>select all>edit>copy. Then when you paste, the full log should display. For what it's worth I didn't not spy any culprits in the running processes, so blockers and filters may not be the cause of this.

On the javatest site that you went to, are you sure you saw the words JavaSCRIPT, (emphasize the "script") is enabled, because we do not care about the 'wavy' animated applet.

If this is due to a damaged javascript installation, you can reinstall that from this link, javascript is included in Windows Script 5.6

I'm not sure, but I think Netscape may use the same .js files as IE.
