IE7 and javascripts

IE7 and javascripts

IE7 and javascripts

I have been trying in vain for the last couple of days to try and sort the following error.

Loading web pages in IE7 will no load the javascript components, however FF3 loads not a problem.  There appears to have been something done to the IE7 engine (1 of the many  updates recently) that has broken javascripts from running in IE7.

I have tried the basic "Hello World" script


<script type="text/javascript">
function hello()
<body onload="hello()">
works in FF3 but does nothing following getting through the ActiveX warning.

I have been through a reinstall of IE7 but with no luck.  Next step is a total rebuild, but I want to avoid that if possible.

Has anybody come across this before or knows of a solution.


RE: IE7 and javascripts

Seems to work fine for me.  Do you get any different results when you run IE in no add-ons mode?

RE: IE7 and javascripts

Tried all addon's on and off and no difference.

There were some M$ updates so will see if I can take those off and try again.
