Question

There is a reoccuring problem I have been having only for about a week now with IE 6.0. It is seemingly harmless but very annoying! When browsing various websites, for about 50% of them I have been receiving a internet explorer script error. The errors themself vary, but the most common is "unexpected identifier" - also "unspecified error", & my favorite, "object doesnt support this property or method". Usually nothing is wrong with the page and after I close the box everything is fine (and it doesnt seem to matter whether I choose to continue with the script or not) but I realy would like to get rid of this. Now I have tried a few things already, with no luck, including:

making sure that "disable script debugging" is checked under tools>internet options>advanced

checking the registry to make sure that the debugging script notification is disabled. (it is)

clearing temperary internet files, cookies and history

scanning my computer for spyware and adware

still, Im getting the same error messages and dont know what to do next.

help!

Hi ... welcome to TSF

If you go up to 'TOOLs>Internet Options>Advanced' - under 'Browsing' the sixth box down is 'Display a notification about every script error' ... if it's checked, uncheck it ... if it's not ... check it ... restart IE, then uncheck and restart IE again.

Confused

Thanks for the tip, but no luck...

what could be causing ie to do this? It really just all of a sudden started happening, literally overnight..

did I do something? could I undo that something? Im baffled here, and need advise.

thanks!

Try going to TOOLs>Internet Options>Programs and Reset Websettings.

Then run a file check (sfc /scannow) which will restore any damaged files in IE - the instructions are on this link:-
http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=k...&sid=global#11

Try the routine for 'Third Party Browser Extensions' too.

If you can't get to the bottom of this, I would suggest a post on the HJT board after following the advice here:-

>>"Now will I ever need any of these 3rd party extensions?"<<

That very much depends on the software you are using.

If you work through the microsoft advice on how to pin down which one is the cause of the problem, you will be able to leave if off or contact the manufacturer to see if they have an update or further advice.
