Windows 7: Blimmin W7 - Just want to see a crossword displayed on screen

32bit Windows 7 Ultimate

So being as quick as l can, tried Firefox and all is OK.
That beggars the question as to why it doesn't work in IE?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

The fact that the applet works OK in Firefox means that your Java installation is OK. Hard to say why it won't work in IE. The reset might have been best left in place rather than reversing it with System Restore. Then work on bringing the Adobe message under control. It seems the Java problem could be a setting somewhere within IE and resetting could ultimately help with that.

When you feel like trying again, maybe do the reset once more and then try the second procedure mentioned in the Microsoft Answers article regarding the Adobe message. You have Firefox now, so this can always be used while sorting IE out.

I wonder if the problem was incurred when you went back to IE8. That should be OK but I feel that a computer is never quite as clean after uninstallations (a disk image is a good way of reverting to a previous state). IE9 is OK once you get used to it.

32bit Windows 7 Ultimate

Thanks Mart and everyone else, really good to have sensible answers.
I'm not really bothered about not seeing that crossword page, but it is now down to "bugging me" rather than a necessity. and as you say, l've also got Firefox so can use that if need arises.
I'll no doubt continue to mess around with settings as you suggest and will close this post off for now.
If l do find an answer, l'll post back.
Thanks again for all you help.
