Unhappy Javascript problem

I'm not on my Dad's pc a lot, but today I was trying to access Yahoo! Music on it. When I go there (Using MyIE2, or just IE) Half the page is gone, the sign-in link isn't there, and when I click on a music video, it just sits there, and won't open. (The link uses javascript to open another window.) Dad has mentioned before that javascript stuff didn't always work. He's running 98SE, and he has Stop Sign for his pop-up blocker and anti-virus. I tried turning his pop-up blocker off, and it didn't work. I went to Internet settings, and set the security levels to low. I enable scripting, and Java, but still it wont work!

Any help would be great!

the only way you will get it to work is reinstalling the java runtime engine which you can get at

i had the same problem before, all i did was turn off norton internet security and it let me see the video. If you have some sort of security/anti-virus/firewall crap on that computer then turn it off while you click on the video. Its worth a try.

One cute little part of their security bundle is "Internet Privacy"....a firewall of sorts...........disabled it and problem..........we are becoming securitied to death!!!!!!!!
