Unknown pop up blocker

hello

I'm using IE6 with WinXP. Since a week or so javascript buttons aren't working anymore. I klick on them and nothing happens.

I deinstalled Google and Yahoo Toolbar, I deactivated Firewall, without changing.

When i go on a new site often the typical sound of pop ups beeing blocked is heard. So I guess there could be some instance that blocks execution of javascript buttons as well. But I can't figure out which program (or plugin?) it could be.

Is there a possibility to find out which other program could be responsible for the behavior of IE6?

Thank you.

Hi navigo,

Try disabling errors using these

********

Open IE, go to tools --> internet options --> advanced and

a) check "disable script debugging"
b) uncheck "Disable a notification about every script error"

*********

Then check this for Javascript issues

http:Q_20946516.html

Uninstall all the pop-up blockers temporarily and once the issue is solved, install either yahoo or google.

Hi  sunray 2003

thank you for your suggestions

I checked internet options, but these were already set as suggested

I checked for viruses with norton and avg, but no virus was found

I went through the different start/run .....dll as mentioned by sramesh2k but script error continued to happen. So I reinstalled IE6, but also after that i'm having the same problems, javascript buttons are not functional.

Have you tried the scripting engine update for XP?

Download details: Windows Script 5.6 for Windows 2000 and XP:

>> typical sound of pop ups beeing blocked is heard

Disable all third-party browser extentions in the Advanced tab of Internet Explorer. This is a temporary solution to know if there is a pop-up blocker in place.

Hi sramesh2k

I tried it but got no results. So at last I reinstalled WinXP, and now everything is working again. But I have no idea what was the origin of the problem.

Thank you all

Reinstalling XP has some downside implications and issues; also did you go to WindowsUpdate again?  Here is an overview of some of the issues after reinstallations.  If you feel you've resolved this without our help, you may wish to request a refund and PAQ to close this by posting a zero point question in the Community Support topic area:

Well, I don't feel that reinstalling XP is to be considered the best resolution in this issue. But I didn't see an alternative. So I dont' t wish a refund.

Actually IE is functioning again inclusive javascript.

So I think that at this point the posting could be closed as a zero point question.

Hi navigo, please try start--> search --> for file or folders, see if that works.
Also try windows update from the start menu.
If you don't have any pop up blocker, that must be a IE or Windows problem, but please verify if you could run the search and the windows update.
If you can't, try this http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=http://support.microsoft.com:80/support/kb/articles/q274/6/96.asp&NoWebContent=1

So I'm a little confused about the no refund/zero point request.  I would not want nor expect any points myself but if it is granted to experts, believe it should be a split between sunray_2003 and sramesh2k ... If a refund is the way you decide, please don't delete, but PAQ; this has value.

Thanks, Venabili.
