I have participated in a chat room for several years hosted by addonchat.com. Between the new IE, Windows 8.1 and the new version of Java, I can no longer access it. I used to get a warning message with a check box for me to allow anyway. Now I am just getting an Application Blocked popup. The entire thing says
Your security settings have blocked an untrusted application from running.
There is an "OK" box and nothing else. This is driving me nuts! I have added both the site specified and the host site to trusted sites. I have lowered security to zero, on both the Security and Privacy tabs and have even allowed unsafe things in the Advanced section. I can find no way around this. Another site I use that has a nice little Java app still allows me to check "run anyway". I would really like to use all the proper security protocols and continue to use Explorer as my browser, but I must find a way to fix this. Is there a registry hack? Some way to specify that the application on this site is trusted? Something?
Thank you for any help.
