Running Java applets in XP SP2
Introduction: IE Users
If your information bar is showing an Active
Content Alert it is due to our navigation menu & features
which are controlled by Java Script. The newest versions of IE
block these automatically. This will slow down your ability to
navigate the site.
You may have seen a pop up box that reads: "Did you notice the
information bar?" or your information bar may show a shield &
read: "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has
restricted this file from showing active content that could
access your computer. Click here for options.
Please be advised that "http://www.itn.pt"
does not use "cookies" or collect any information from your
browser. The only Java Scripts used on this site are for
navigation & feature purposes.
If you "click for options and say ok", this will
enable the drop down menu which allows you to navigate the site
more quickly. If you do not turn the IE Blocking off you will
still be able to navigate using the less detailed navigation
links found on each page.
Note that the Java
applet is only enabled for this Internet Explorer window.
If you close this window and come back again you will have to go
through the same process again. However, all further active
content in this window is enabled.
IE Blocking off
Unless you change the security setting as described below,
you have to go through several worrying-looking hoops every time
you run a page with Java applet:
- Open menu Tools+Internet Options+Advanced tab
- Scroll down to the "Security" section.
- Make sure that "Allow active content from CDs to run on
My Computer" is checked.
Website should now run satisfactorily.
