HI all,

I have a laptop on which I connect to a gaming site which requires Java.

Java is up to date
WIndows 7 Home Prem is up to date.
Using Firefox which is up to date.

When accessing the game it tells me that the application is blocked due to the security settings.

"Your security settings have blocked an untrusted application from running"

I have trawled the internet and everyone talks of going Control Panel - Java - security tab - and changes the security.

my java does not have any settings on the security tab, only a certificates button.

any help gratefully received,
gareth

Older versions of Java have been disabled in browsers because of security problems last year.  If you just did the latest update today, there is a message that says you have to go into the Java console to enable it.   It is the first thing on the current Security tab.
