In the Internet Options dialog box that opens up, click on the "Security" tab and then click on the "Custom Level" button. In the "Security Settings" dialog box that opens up, scroll down until you see the "Scripting" category. Under the "Active scripting" option, click on the "Enable" radio button. Similarly, enable for "Allow paste operation via script" and "Script of Java applets." Click on "OK" to close the Security Settings dialog box and then click on "OK" to close the Internet Options dialog box.
