Hi there. I play an online game called Runescape, which requires Java to play. I have been playing for numerous years and this is the first time I have encountered this problem. When you Click the Play Now button on the home page you get directed to the login page. This login page requires Java to load. However when I click Play Now, the message pops up on screen saying Internet explorer cannot display the webpage.

The above link is an example of what I see when clicking play now. My Java isnt loading between me clicking play now and the login page loading. In all my years of playing this has never happened.

The official Java website has detected Java on my PC.

I have restarted my computer, reinstalled Java, Restarted my computer again and still the same problem.

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium.

Cheers for all the help

I think you are confusing Javascript and Java? I don't play Runescape, but are you running any new security software that could block Javascript?

Why don't you try it in a different browser?

Thanks for the replies. Forgot to mention that I am using IE8. I have just downloaded Mozilla and that is working fine. It loaded the game up straight away.

@freitasm. No I hadnt changed anything.

Open IE8 Click on tools

click on reset

click/check box on reset passwords

Click apply/reset

you will get a box pop up. doesnt realy mater what options you choose here just make sure you use express settings.

^^^^ I think it was some kind of update that caused it. Had a couple of clients come in and they couldnt get grab a set reverse auction. Runs off jave and that fixd it

Thanks for letting me know it worked.
