Here's how to disable Java in Internet Explorer.
If you use Internet Explorer version 7 or above, open Internet Explorer and select Tools | Manage Add-ons then skip to Step 3.
If you use an older version of Internet Explorer, open Internet Explorer and select Tools | Internet Options and continue to Step 2.
- From the Internet Options window, click the Programs tab and select Manage Add-ons.
- From the Add-ons windows, click once to select (highlight) Java Plug-in then click the Disable button. Click Close and OK to accept the change.
- Alternatively, you can also click Tools | Internet Options | Advanced. If Java is installed in your browser, you will see a listing for Sun Java in the Internet Options menu. Just uncheck it to disable.
- When you encounter a site that requires Java (for example, some small online games and calculators), you can re-enable Java easily by following the same steps above, this time selecting the enable option.
