Webpages are not being displayed Correctly and RunTime Errors too

Posted on 2004-08-08

To All,

I have a strange problem.  

The computers on the network are using IE 6 and when going to some web pages an Error message will appear when loading saying "A Runtime Error has occurred.  Do you wish to debug?"  This error started to happen recently and also when viewing other webpages that may have Flash, Java or something along those lines, these pages won't be displayed at all expect for the background colour.  

Now I think it is an Security issue and the network here is a Windows 2000 Domain with ISA Server 2000 SP2 as the cache and firewall.  Reason for this is when viewing these same webpages via a Dial Up Account, the pages all load perfectly but when connected to our network they don't.  It's like the ISA Server or something else is saying not to letting these through.  I will throw in a spanner to completely confuse anyone who wishes to help.  When going to the Macromedia website, Flash loads up and play without any errors.

Has anyone else had this problem that I am having?  Can anyone help me with this problem that the network is having?
Big Thanks to all that help me with this

Usually, "A Runtime Error has occurred.  Do you wish to debug?"  does not indicate any security issues. In order not to see these errors, what you can do is to goto

Tools-->Internet Options
in the Advanced Tab,
look for "Disable Script Debugging"
and make sure that it is checked

An addition to my comment, also make sure that the "display notification about every script error" is not check

That should fix the debugging problem, I forgot about that option.  

But what about the problem with Webpages not being displayed correctly?

It happens with pages that have Flash (it is installed on the workstations) some javascript (the Javascripts for date and time around the world for the Intranet is working).  the pages that I have are only the ones that have been brought to my attendation by the sales people.  When viewing the pages on a different network (ISP via modem) is all works the way it should be.  The other problem is that when going to Macromedia to view their Flash, it can be viewed with no problems.  I do not think that the web pages are at fault due to the fact that they can be viewed just not on the company network.

If you need any more information please let me know.

The only solution was to remove ISA Server and the webpages worked.

Thanks for all the help

Please close this question.

The problem was due to a spyware or virus program that preventing me to view the web pages.  None of the virus checkers and spyware cleaners were able to find it.  I had to rebuild the server in order to get everything back to normal.

Thank you all that helped
