Lame Internet Explorer script error message

This is something new (to me). The script generating this error comes from the SprintPCS servers.

<!–
— Unfortunately, Microsoft has added a clever new
— “feature” to Internet Explorer. If the text in
— an error’s message is “too small”, specifically
— less than 512 bytes, Internet Explorer returns
— its own error message. Yes, you can turn that
— off, but *surprise* it’s pretty tricky to find
— buried as a switch called “smart error
— messages” That means, of course, that many of
— Resin’s error messages are censored by default.
— And, of course, you’ll be shocked to learn that
— IIS always returns error messages that are long
— enough to make Internet Explorer happy. The
— workaround is pretty simple: pad the error
— message with a big comment to push it over the
— five hundred and twelve byte minimum. Of course,
— that’s exactly what you’re reading right now.

    I am having a very annoying message – internet explorer script error. I have gone to tools and check on disable script debugging and off display a notification but I still get the message. I also got spyware scanner and had my computer scanned. Nothing was detected. Is there anyone who can tell me how to get rid of the message? I would really appreciate it.

      99% of the answers on the web were all the same.. 500 folks tried this cure and still have the problem… So, what is it??? They had a virus that changed the permissions in their registry.. When they cleaned the virus, the hives were still blocked from changes.. SOLUTION: Use regedit.. Highlight EACH hive, right click on permissions. Change(check) to ALLOW in all cases – close registry… THEN, go to IE – tools – advanced tab – uncheck the scrip error things – apply – OK.. Now, the data is written into the registry… Life is good, again.. OBTW, this cures many problems that require registry writes..

        If I only understood half of what you wrote maybe I could fix this lunatic problem. What is regedit… ? What is a hive? Several have suggested just using Mozilla. Well, that did not work for me. I have Internet Explorer and Mozilla, Mozilla being my default browser, and it happened with both. I was on photobucket, trying to view some of the images for my website. Talk about wasting time. That script error keeps popping up so fast you can’t even do what you need to do to grab an image. Please help!!!

    I keep getting this very annoying message- internet explorer script error that pops up on my computer screen when I first turn it on. I noticed that sometimes when I X it out or click yes or no to continue running the script that it starts laughting and I end up shutting down my computer and restarting it. I’ve done a virus scan using mcafee with no success( didn’t detect anything ). I went into internet options from the tools file and disabled script debugging and off display notification but I’m still getting the message. So now I confused I don’t know what else to do to get rid of the message. Can anyone help me?

    getting tired of that annoying message popping up about scripts in
    internet explorer how can i remove the message

  6. Matt says:

    I ran several different spyware programs and antivirus programs, and none of them found anything. I uninstalled Norton Internet security and nothing happened. Finally, I uninstalled Internet Explorer and installed Mozilla firefox instead, and it was an instant fix!

    Having the same poblem on most everthing I click to.Can close it but very often comes back and we play let’s beat the message game.EXTREMELY irritating. Unfortunately I have tried everything and it still won’t go away. I am working on Windows 98 right now.Don’t have a problem with XP.Have been everwhere trying to find an answer, but no luck. There has to be someone out there with an answer. Can’t find a way to reach Microsoft about this yet either.

    I found that if you go in and configure the Norton Personal Firewall, you will find microsoft error reporting one of the things that can be configured by admit, block, and whatever. I blocked mine, and it actually stopped.

    I recommend getting into your personal firewall and poking around. It is REALLY easy and you can change anything back by just redo-ing this procedure.

    I am not convinced that one can ultimately get rid of any of these errors as long as one is running an MS OS. Delete operating system, get something based on UNIX.

  11. Mark says:

    In regard to the Internet Explorer Script Error with Norton Internet Security Error. I download Registry Mechanic Trial and ran the software and my problems was over.

    I found a solution at this site(http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/k.....d=fb1634cb) to the Internet Explorer Script Error problem where blank windows keep popping up regardless of how you set Internet Explorer options. I also couldn’t get to key pages like System Restore or User Accounts. Look at this blog for complaints by many others with the same problem: http://forums.microsoft.com/MS.....8;SiteID=1

    *** Disable Script error in Internet Explorer (all versions) ***
    this is the ONLY FIX to disable script errors in internet explorer

    OK, everything else on the web says to check the box that says “disable script debugging” and uncheck the box that says “display notification about every scrip error”
    thats all fine and dandy but THAT DOES NOT WORK, i have a fix
    but first i will explain to you why NOBODY can rid themselves of this error message

    1. internet explorer does not understand standard web page programming
    2. internet explorer will ALLWAYS display this error for web pages it does not understand, and thare is NOTHING you can do to stop the error

    SOLUTION
    The ONLY solution is to install a different web browser, and not use internet explorer, Its simple and other browsers work the same as internet explorer except that they display the web FASTER and never ever have script erors

    heres how to use a different web browser (and they are FREE)

    – firefox web browser (recommended)
    1. go to http://www.getfirefox.com and download and install the firefox web browser, the first time you start it it will ask you if you want to make firefox your default browser, click “yes”

    done problem solved

    -opera web browser go to http://www.opera.com and download and install the opera web browser, the first time you start it it will ask you if you want to make opera your default browser, click “yes”

    done problem solved

    in short thare IS NO WAY to disable internet explorer script errors, its a bad program that WILL ALLWAYS HAVE SCRIPT ERRORS, and the only thing you can do is not use it

    i hope this was helpful

    I had the problems of the script error giving me problems on IE 6 and have been trying to get rid of it for months. I un-installed, repaired, re-installed, updated, tried to hack the registry to no avail. I then downloaded bazooka, an anti-spyware, ran it, found three, probably just two spyware installed, then followed directions to get rid of it. It worked! I have a feeling any other spyware remover (that is not a trojan horse) would have worked also. I got rid of two files and two registry entries.

  17. IE sux says:

    same here and it wont go away, if i click yes or no nothing happens and when i move the box i can close that one but another one appears, i wanna throw my computer cuz its really pissing me off piece of shit internet explorer
