I recently installed recommended updates (to Windows and Java) and now I can't view java applets that are located on my hard drive. When I double-click the HTML file, I receive the message: "Application blocked by security settings". This happens with all three browsers I use. I can't figure out how to fix this so that I can do my homework. I've checked security settings in the Java Control Panel and the browsers. Here are the details:
Java SE 7.21 (build 1.7.0_21-b11)
Java Control Panel > Security...
Java in the browser is enabled.
Security level is High (minimum recommended).
Chrome 26.0.1410.64 m
Windows 7 Home Premium, SP 1
Recently installed KB2840149, security update for microsoft windows
