When I go to "Tools > Internet Options > Security > Custom Level" my only options are low, mediam, high security or custom.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Greetings, kelleyprop !

Setting the security setting to Medium should allow you to view most Java applett.

Are you getting Java error or Javascript error?  If Java, you may need to reinstall your Java

If you are talking about Javascript, you may want to refresh your JRE Engine

I am surprised that there is again another version to IE. IE7 beta3 when did this one come out?
june I see..
get rid of it unless you enjoy being a tester, beta products are that in testing stages and rely on them to not function so that they can fix any problems, uninstall it and just use IE6 or change to Firefox.
lol I know I may sound inconsiderate but most of us are not using the Beta versions for this very reason.

The preview of Beta 3 takes up 12.8MB of hard drive space. IE7 requires Windows XP Service Pack 2. It's important to uninstall any previous version of IE7 before installing this one. Installation of beta software is not recommended in production environments.
IE7 does install some operating system components; it may be uninstalled from Add or Remove Programs.
For more information on IE7 Beta 3, see Microsoft's IE7 Beta 3 checklists,http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ie7/downloads/checklists.mspx
 release notes http://msdn.microsoft.com/ie/releasenotes/default.aspx
 and add-ons page.http://www.ieaddons.com/default.aspx?cid=home&scid=0

Current Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 or earlier users
If you're running Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 or earlier, follow these steps prior to downloading Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3:

Click your Start button, then go to Control Panel
Go to Add or Remove Programs
Go to Change or Remove Programs and make sure "Show updates" is checked.
If you are running Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 Preview released on March 20 or a later version, it is no longer necessary to check "Show updates."
Scroll down on the list and highlight the version of Internet Explorer 7 Beta that you are running.
Click "Remove" to uninstall the previous version of Internet Explorer 7 Beta.
Reboot your PC and return to the download page for Internet Explorer 7 to begin downloading the latest version.

Thank you for all your comments. This is truly the best help information available. I'm no expert but I am a little tech savy. Bottom line is I don't think Microsoft is real friendly to Java. I'm trying to get some security camera's to work using IE7 Beta 3. I keep getting an error message saying I need Full Java Permissions. Yes I think I have tried every setting available. Thanks, Ron

Thank you kelleyprop did you resolve it one way or another. would be interested to know if you could get these security camera's to work in the previous IE6.

All these java issues have come about since xpsp2 but also in June 2006 updates will be the biggest for more than a year!
This is because Microsoft is not only tackling security problems but also the fallout of a legal case that the software maker lost -
 See  article KB912945 - http://www.updatexp.com/kb912945.html

 Before now, users could choose to apply this change to their browser, but this June 2006 update makes it mandatory...
This change is due to a patent suit brought against Microsoft by a company named Eloas. The name is an acronym for "Embedded Object Links Across Systems." Basically, Eloas claims to own (along with the University of California) the patent for the technology that allows browsers to automatically launch external files like Flash, RealPlayer, MP3, and PDF.

By applying Microsoft Internet Explorer ActiveX update - KB912945 for Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) or for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1, changes will occur in the behaviour of Java applets or ActiveX controls in Internet Explorer 6.1
This basically means this "non security" patch KB912945 will see users NOT being able to "directly interact" with ActiveX controls loaded by the APPLET, EMBED, or OBJECT elements.

This includes:

Adobe Reader – PDF documents in a webpage
Apple QuickTime Player - Video and Audio on webpage’s
Macromedia Flash Player - Video and Audio on webpage’s
Microsoft Windows Media Player – Video and Audio on webpage’s
Real Networks RealPlayer - Video and Audio on webpage’s
Sun Java Virtual Machine – External software that runs in IE


...AFTER the update KB912945 is installed you cannot interact with ActiveX controls from Web pages until these controls are enabled. To enable an ActiveX control, you will have to MANUALLY click the control - not a huge issue, just a pain to have to click the screen BEFORE it will work.
Best wishes Merete
