What are JavaScript Errors?

JavaScript is a programming language that is used for developing dynamic websites. A lot of these errors are the ones that are generated in the real JavaScript code and presented on Internet sites. With this kind of error, there is actually little you can do due to the wrong code. Thus, switching off JavaScript debugging can make these errors stop displaying.

What are Java errors?

Java is a technology that enables interactive features for the Web, such as Internet chats, 3D pictures or images, loan calculators and online video games. To play the features in your Internet browser, your computer should have a built-in Java Virtual Machine and the installation of the Java application.


The errors for these applications are most of the time associated with the Java application. Actually, a lot of more general errors have something to do with the real set up of the Java application itself. It is very important to select the appropriate version of Java for your respective operating systems and then follow the setup directions entirely. You may be required to initially uninstall an old version if you want to upgrade to the latest version. The moment you have downloaded and installed the application, reboot your computer to be sure that the installation job is entirely finished.


The Java application should be enabled in the Internet browser for it to function. This should be done even if the installation is good.

  1. Open up the Internet Explorer browser by double clicking on the IE icon if it is on the desktop.
  2. Click on tools, a drop-down menu will be displayed and then click on "Internet Options."
  3. Click on the "Advanced" tab and navigate down and look for the "Scripting of Java Applets" entry.
  4. Click on enable and then verify your adjustments by clicking on the "OK" button.
  5. Exit out of the Internet options.
