I'm running XP and my IE version 8. After I loaded my JDK now when I have someone's webpage up in my browser and I try to click something it errors out. The error is something like you don't have access to this object or method.
Help!!!

Can you provide the complete error details? Might be that it has a Applet and that threw some exception.

Your post is incredibly light on details, but it sounds more like a JavScript error than any kind of Java error. Does this happen on more than one site?

The problem seems to be with any person's webpage that has a Java call. So I don't think the error is with the actual Java code but in the settings of the IE after I loaded the JDK. It seems Internet Explorer does not know where to look for *.js files.
For example on Apple's Developer page and click their "My Account" menu item I get "Object doesn't support this property or method membercenter.js"
On careerbuilder.com site I get "a.s.bc is null or ot an object linktracking.js"
On A. H Meadows Library website I get Message: 'null' is null or not an object Line: 1 Char: 99 Code: 0
URI: http://library.midlothian-isd.net/common/servlet/presenthomeform.do;jsessionid=AAC67E5797806FA4A4E52DE6C2105E39?l2m=Home&tm=Home&l2m=Home
I'm getting a lot of "null is null or not an object" in a lot of unrelated websites.
I also tried updating my browser but Windows comes back and says I'm up to date on the browser.
I would love some help on this as I wanting to learn to write Java...I downloaded the JDK...and now I'm slightly cripled in my normal browser activity.
Thanks!

Here is another example. In Facebook bringing up a new Facebook page and clicking their "Like" button to add them as a friend it says "Object required T04U0zadTsGB.js" Like it doesn't know where to go when it's supposed to pull up a .js file.

Please note that Java and JavaScript are two completely different things. The only thing they have in common is the "Java" in the name.

If you have problems with JavaScript running in your browser, then that doesn't have anything to do with Java or installing the JDK. JavaScript errors are not "Java calls", they don't have anything to do with Java.

With regard to the JavaScript errors: Check the security settings of your browser. Make sure that running scripts is switched on. Try cleaning up the temporary Internet files. Scan your computer for viruses.

I should have also stated that I do know that JavaScript and Java are two different things. I also ran malware and spyware checks and my virus checker is always active.
The reason I'm posting here is that it appears that the reason that this odd browser personality just happened right after downloading and installing the JDK....and I posted it here because this is a Java helper site that says that it is friendly and there aren't any stupid questions/problems.

So I still need help on this...downloading installing the JDK has caused my IE8 browser to act oddly. I appreciate anyone's help. Thank you.

I dont think Installing JDK should in anyway affect the way your browser handles Javascript.

Indeed, we are a friendly Java site, our first rule is BeNice

Ok, so the problems started after you installed the JDK. However, are you sure that that is what is causing your browser to act oddly? Maybe something else happened around the same time that's the real cause of the browser problem. When you uninstall the JDK, do the problems go away?
