Not receiving Security Warning when accessing site with Java Applet

Posted on 2006-05-22

I have a network where all PC's besides one are receiving a IE "Do you want to run this software" popup when accessing a website with a java applet. The one PC that is not receiving this security warning has the applet going straight to a blank gray box. The PC doesn't have any popup software installed and I've turned off the one in IE6. Any other ideas?

    Greetings, JonCardona !

    1. Check if the security warning is not turned off.  In IE, go to Tools > Internet Options > Security tab > Customized and check if the warning is turned off.  Also, look under the Advanced tab.

    2. Make sure that the Internet Explorer on the one PC that does not give warning has the latest IE updates and hotfixes.  Go to Windows Updates site and check.  All critical updates should be downloaded and installed.

    3. Make sure the latest version of Java is installed in the problem PC

    If I'm not mistaken, you're using Windows XP service pack 2, which causing the problem.

    Sorry Guys,

    I noticed that the one PC that was having the issue had an older version of IE than the others. After updating it the security warning popped up. Thanks alot for the help and my apologies for taking so long to respond.
