    So Im having issues clicking on certain links/actions all the sudden on my laptop!! Realjocks site is a perfect example, everytime I try to click on a guys ppics, or click on "send mail" to send a message, or try to delete mail in my box my computer just cant click on it. I continue to click on it and it just says "JAVASCRIPT:VOID"(O)

    Its driving me nuts, Ive fixed and updated my java 100 times!

    Use a different browser to troubleshoot.

    Java and JavaScript aren't the same things. Updating Java won't do anything for this problem.

    What browser are you using? Where are you seeing that message? Is JavaScript enabled in your browser settings?

    This ^^

    Java runs on the server side. JavaScript runs on the client side (your browser).

    Java can run on the client, and JavaScript can be run server-side. People get them confused because of the similar sounding names.

    1. Open Google Chrome. I assume you're using the most recent version.
    2. Navigate to a page that doesn't work for you.
    3. Press CTRL-Shift-J to open the JavaScript console.
    4. Right-click in the console area, and select "clear console" to clear any messages you already have.
    5. Click on the link that is giving you a problem and see if there is an error message in the JavaScript console. If there is, post it, and we'll go from there.

    It's more likely a software problem, not a hardware problem.

    True. But in the context of the OP's issue he is trying to access web sites. Not run any standalone Java program or Applet.

    Agreed.

    What did you click on to get this error?

    Also, make sure JavaScript is enabled in Chrome:

    1. Open Chrome.
    2. Click on the "Customize and control Chrome" button on the upper right side of the toolbar.
    3. Click Settings on the menu.
    4. Click "Show advanced settings..." at the bottom of the page.
    5. Click the "Content settings..." button under the Privacy section.
    6. Make sure "Allow all sites to run JavaScript (recommended)" is selected. (Wow! The really hid that setting deep down in there!)

    It's a method of last resort.

    Have you changed anything with your setup recently?

    I was able to click on his profile and click the link to send him an e-mail. (I didn't actually send him one.)

    In addition to what I said above, make sure you're using the latest version of Chrome. I think it update automatically, but to be sure, click the "Customize and control Google Chrome" button and click "About Google Chrome" on the menu. It will tell you if it's up-to-date.

    This is difficult to troubleshoot remotely. I'll help you if I can.

    No one told him to get a Mac yet? icon_lol.gif

    Are you using any type of anti-virus software or internet security software? If yes, try temporarily disabling it. I suspect it's interfering with the JavaScript.
