    I’m trying to disable JavaScript because I am testing a simple tag which is working fine in FF. But I can’t get IE to disable JS. I tried this tutorial but it doesn’t work. I remember in previous versions of IE there was a specific enable/disable of JavaScript (not “Active Scripting”) but I don’t see it in IE7. Another tutorial said to disable Java applets (which makes no sense) and then restart the browser. So I tried disabling both Active Scripting and Java applets and then restarting the browser and that didn’t do anything either. What gives?

    I ahave been unable to view certain apps(FARM, SUPERPOKE) in the past few hours. I have tried uninstalling, then re-installing Flash Player, and checked settings as described above. No luck so far, can anybody help?
