    I have a few websites that work with a expanding menu in Javascript. These
    menus don't seem to work anymore with IE7. What is the reason? Is it the
    security of IE7? Or is because of the code?

    Websites: (Visit them with IE7 en IE6 or Firefox to see the difference)

    Can someone plz help me!!!

    Question, what version of Java are you using? Is it the most current update

    Also, verify that you only have "one" version of Java installed. Sometimes
    when Java performs an auto update oddly they install an additional version of
    Java. Unknowingly to you, you might have two or three versions of Java
    installed, a self-testimony for Sun's applications.

    Java update 10 will function okay with Vista, at least it's the best that
    Sun can produce.... and easily could be improved.

    Already thanks for trying to help me, but the problem isn't solved.

    When I went to configurationpanel > software, I saw 2 updates:
    Java Runtime Environment 5.0 update 9
    Java Runtime Environment 5.0 update 10

    I have deleted the first one, reboted, en tried again. The problem is still
    there: My menus in the website ( don't appear
    when I move my mouse over it. I'm running Windows Media Center Edition -
    Service Pack 2.

    Thanks already

    Your site isn't recognizing IE7.
    - - -
    Default browsercheck
    function lib_bwcheck(){ //Browsercheck (needed)
    this.ver=navigator.appVersion; this.agent=navigator.userAgent
    this.ie5=(this.ver.indexOf("MSIE 5")>-1 && this.dom)?1:0;
    this.ie6=(this.ver.indexOf("MSIE 6")>-1 && this.dom)?1:0;
    this.ie4=(document.all && !this.dom)?1:0;||this.ie5||this.ie6
    this.opera5=this.agent.indexOf("Opera 5")>-1
    this.ns6=(this.dom && parseInt(this.ver) >= 5) ?1:0;
    this.ns4=(document.layers && !this.dom)?1:0; || this.ie5 || this.ie4 || this.ns4 || this.ns6 ||
    this.opera5 || this.dom)
    return this
    - - -
    If I run the User Agent tool to make IE7 look like IE6 the menus work OK.

    Additional info:

    Hope this helps,

    @Don Varnau: THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

    I looked over it. I've changed the browsercheckscript and now it works!

  6. Java has nothing to do with JavaScript. They are totally unrelated.
