IE 6.0 Script Error - Windows 2000 Pro

Posted on 2003-11-21
Last Modified: 2007-12-19
I continue to receive Internet Explorer Script Errors on various websites.  The workstation is Windows 2000 Pro.  The exact message is:
An error has occurred in the script on this page.
Line: 93
Char: 1
Error: Access is denied
Code: 0
URL:  res://C:\WINNT\system32\shdoclc.dll/preview.dlg
I did find info on the Microsoft website - Article #306831 and I did follow the suggested resolution, but it did not work.  I still am getting these errors.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Greetings, mmj1!

Disable script checking in IE.  With IE open, go to Tools > Options > Advanced.  Check "Disable script debugging".  Click OK.

Best wishes, war1

I followed your instructions; however, this already had a check mark next to it.

Perhaps the 3rd party browser extensions part of this atricle may help:

This behavior can occur if the Urlmon.dll file is not registered.

if you noticed in Microsoft Article:

>>This behavior can occur if the Urlmon.dll file is not registered.

this is in common, but specifically for "Access is denied", check this:;en-us;324020

pls if it didn't work tell me to check another solution

1. Go to tools folder option\view and enable view hidden files and folders

2. Go to C:\Document and Settings\ UserProfileFolder( this has your profile name)\Local Settings and delete the content inside the History folder, the Temp folder and the "Temporary Internet Files" folders.

Open the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet, select Microsoft Inter-net Explorer 6 and Internet Tools, click Change/Remove (on your system, the option might be Add/Remove), then select the Repair Internet Explorer option. If for some reason the repair option is unavailable, you can access it manually. To do so, click Start, Run from the toolbar and enter the following case-sensitive command:

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I did uncheck the "Enable third party brower extensions" box under the options tab.  I was going to monitor this for a couple of days to see if it helps.  Last week some time I had tried registering the Urlmon.dll file but that didn't help - I continued to get the error.  Before trying what andregen suggested above I was going to see if disabling the third party brower extensions helped.  Thanks to all of you for taking your valuable time to help me!!

So far so good!  To date, I haven't received the error.  Since it only seemed to happen when printing, I was going to monitor it for a few more days.  If I don't get the error after a few more days I am going to close the question.  Thanks so much!!
