Anyway... I went to Tools > Options under IE to check for Active Scripting and everything that has to do with it, and all were enabled. I also checked to see if I have JS runtime installed and I do. Then I made a simple html page with document.write("hello") and put it in a virtual drive. Mozilla read the document just fine, but IE 6 does not display hello at all...
Does anybody know the problem?
P.S.: I tried re-installing IE and that did not help, I also tried to repair it (through the setup) and that did not help either... I am running out of options... Any help is greatly appreciated.
P.S.S.: I also have only SP1 installed and I am running Windows XP. Service Pack 2 refuses to be installed
The only other thing I can think of is that active content is also dependent on your security settings.
by active content do you mean active scripting? that is enabled on my computer
My pc is Win XP. The command does not run in IE but it runs fine on Firefox.
I have already:
-enabled 'active scripting', 'allow paste operations via script' and 'scripting of Java applets' in the IE.
-tried to run the command on a win 2000 machine with the same IE. It works.
-----> The problem (which jonwondering and I face) is obviously a registry or .msc file setting which is unique to winXP. I notice that this thread wandered into a lot of irrelevant detours and fizzled out without a proper conclusion.
Any body knows the answer? Please do not reply if you just like to see your name here ..
Thank you to all genuine volunteers who spend their time to help us newbies out.
P.S. I happen to believe that winXP is a load of Eye Candy. win2000 was way better (except for gaming).

The likelihood is it's related to SP2's security measures. No message bar comes up atop the browser window?
