Enable Javascript

(I hope asking this question is allowed regarding EMD rules...)
How do I enable JavaScript for working offline?
I'm using Internet Explorer 7.0 and Windows XP.
(Everything I've tried didn't help - I need this really badly )

Thanks for any help,

Please avoid Windows XP and Internet Explorer or you will be at risk.
If you need to use Windows XP, at least change to Firefox. Itīs easier to disable javascript in it and safer.

This is very easy to answer with a Google search:

JavaScript is usually used online (not offline), and is completely unrelated to Java. As I'm sure you realize, IE7 and Windows XP are both very old and have been unsupported for years.

SeaMonkey might be a better choice. It has the same core as Firefox, but runs a bit lighter and has an interface similar to Internet Explorer's.

Yes, thatīs very sad, I had to uninstall it in my job about 2 weeks ago and then I used Seamonkey as you said, but recently I changed to firefox again due to the addons I use (not compatible with seamonkey). I was using it in GNU/Linux too.
