If you don’t know how to turn on this feature you won’t be able to get maximum functionality from your Web browser. Errors might also appear. Here is how you can enable these scripts in the different Web browsers.
For Internet Explorer 6 for Windows start by opening the program. Click the Tools menu. Choose Internet Options. When you click it you will see a tab called Security. Click it and you will see Custom Level. Press it and keep scrolling until you get to the “Scripting” section. Click the Enable option. Press OK, and the script is now turned on.
If you use Internet Explorer for the Mac choose Preferences in the Edit menu. A list will appear. Select Web Content. Go to the Active Content and put a checkmark next to “Enable Scripting”. Click OK. Hit the refresh button if it doesn’t take effect immediately.
Note: if you are looking for ActiveX controls, the feature is currently not supported by this browser.
Remember to upgrade your browsers to avoid other error messages. At the same time you should check your settings to make sure the script is still on. You should also have an up to date antivirus software program. This will keep you safe from viruses and malware that use this script. Most of these malware can be removed easily though. If you keep your security programs updated it will not be a problem.
