This morning, for reasons unknown to me, my security settings changed. I can no longer open some java-based applications. Argh! I hate Mondays 🙁 This is how my computer greeted me when I tried to launch a java based remote connection tool
So here is the fix. The first place I looked was in Internet Explorer tools
IE-> IE tools (gear icon in top right of IE window)-> Internet Options-> Security-> Custom level-> Here I reviewed the settings and made a few changes to allow everything to download but prompt. It did not resolve the issue.
The fix is in Java (Control Panel-> Java). Go to the security tab and drop the settings down to medium. Presto! Back to the internets
