Need help with browser problem

I have a problem with my browser running Javascript.

Using Netscape, I can run programs with Javascripts.

Using IE, or if I open an HTML program with wordpad, the Javascript
code will not execute.

IE and wordpad used to work...now it doesn't.

May of been caused by loading VB.net software which has since been
uninstalled. May of been caused by my Tech support people remapping my
drives.

In any event, can somebody help me figure out how a browser runs
Javascripts ?
What does the browser need ?

I have already checked the IE properties and compared to another
PC...everything looked fine...any suggestions.

Thank you for your time.

Hi Mick,

Thanks for your interest.

It doesn't matter what Javascript code I try to run (incidently my
programs had been running fine and dandy before I loaded the VB.net
tutorial, which I have now uninstalled).

While using Internet Explorer, any website with Javascript code will
not run; even the Microsoft help website. These same websites will run
using Netscape.

This leads me to believe that whatever engine runs Javascript is
still on my PC; its just not being accessed, or linked to properly.

Any ideas ?

Thanks,
Dawn

If it is local to your PC, check that you have not inadvertently
disabled JavaScript.

Hi Mick,

Thanks again for your interest.
I've looked at Internet Explorer properties, and I don't see anything
that would specifically tell wheither or not Javascript is enabled.

Do you know what I should look for to see if its enabled?
