Things You'll Need
- Working hook-up to the Internet
- Internet Explorer Version 7
Access Internet Explorer by opening it up on your computer. If it isn't already installed, visit the Microsoft Web site to download the latest version (see Resources below).
Go to 'Tools' on the task bar and click on it.
Select the 'Internet Options' heading.
Locate the tab labeled 'Advanced' and click on it.
Scroll through the list of settings until you see the 'Java' category.
Use your mouse to place a check in the box beside the only setting option under 'Java.' This setting option is 'Use JRE 1.5.0_05.'
Re-start your computer. Your computer must be re-started in order for the change you just made to take effect.
Tips & Warnings
- Internet Explorer 7 will run on computers using Windows XP, Vista or Server 2003 with a 233MHz processor or higher.
- You can further strengthen Internet Explorer's protective measures by increasing the security settings in its built-in firewall and by installing your own virus elimination software.
