Internet Explorer – Where To Enable Or Disable JavaScript

Let me clarify something first, Java and JavaScript *are not the same*, they are 2 completely different and independent programming languages.

The setting(s) for one does not affect the other period. While the two share part of their names in common, and are often mentioned as if they were the same, they are really two completely different programming languages, and you should really consider them as such.
