We had Windows 2008 Domain controllers and we have virtualised all our servers and our DCs are Windows 2012.

 Windows XP PC (300)
 Windows 7 (10 PCs)

We started upgrading our PC from windows XP to 7 . Now I have created a separate group policy for IE 10  for the restricted users and I have attached this policy on the restricted  users OU. I set Google as a home page on this policy and this gets applied successfully for the restricted user.

We have a website and this website is opening from the XP PC successfully without any java prompt .
As I am in a process of moving to windows 7,  If I open the same website on a windows 7 PC (IE version is 11)  and click the "Check the software requirements" and I get an error which says
"JavaScript is required to use this website and the check software requirement's page. Please enable JavaScript in your browser"

Please suggest how this can be resolved , so that it doesn't prompt for java script when I click check software requirement's page  and successfully passes all the software requirements.

Please post me some tutorials.

Thanks is advance and help much appreciated.

    your site is down at the present moment.  IE on servers is severely locked down .. you may have to adjust the security settings or in the internet options advanced try reset

    Thanks David
    This is not happening on the server , it happens on the windows 7 PCs on our domain.

    JavaScript is not Java.  You enable JavaScript from settings on the PC.
    IE Tools|Internet Options|Security tab|Custom Level|Scripting section| set Active Scripting and Scripting of Java applets to Enable.

    I am glad to have helped.  But with respect it is somewhat unusual to award an Accepted Solution only a Good rating.  This may explain why.

    So you see it is not the points (I have lots) those accessing this thread in the future will wonder what else had to be done.
