    Try making IE the default. If that doesn't work, try uninstalling Chrome to see if that does the trick. It can easily be installed again if it doesn't. If either of those two don't help, try SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8[1]=Performance

    You need 64bit java for 64bit browsers, and 32 for the 32 ones.

    Update 10 for jre7 has be released:
    Java SE Downloads

    It adds better support for Win8 so it's recommended to upgrade.

    Hi guys,

    I have exactly the same issue with java - i can see the platform icon, but games do not load, i.e. chess.com stays grey. Chrome is default. Tried IE and Firefox, same thing. It is enabled and installed (latest).

    Just as an FYI, I am only running Java 32bit 6_25 and am playing the against the PC on chess.com.

    What other java sites are you all going to?

    Same problems and I have installed 32 and 64 bit versions of Java and Java is not recognised in Chrome and IE10.

    medab1, your links aren't working and I would like to try whatever you're suggesting here, although I did try not filer ActiveX in IE10 which didn't work.

    I've tried suggestions above but am at a loss. I wonder if the others got working?

    Just right click a link & choose to open in a new window.

    EDIT-- Tinypic seems to be broke.
    Here are 2 of the images--

    I'm sorry about the other images.
    From now on I'll attach all images.
