Norton Internet Security keeps popping up an 'Internet Explorer Script Error'

Posted on 2004-09-03

I've just re-installed Norton Internet Security on a system that had it's definitions become messed up. After uninstalling I manually deleted everything related to Symantec.

Anyway, NIS 2004 is now reinstalled, but when the setup script shows up upon boot to config all the settings, I get the error:

Internet Explorer Script Error

An error has occured in the script on this page

Line: 262
Char: 3
Error: Unspecified Error
Code: 0
URL: res://C:\Program%Files\Norton%Internet%Security%20Profesional\CfgWzRes.dll/CfgWizRoadmap.htm

Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

I also get the same basic error, only with:

Line: 586
Char: 3
Error: 'MainFrame.m_aWizardPanels' is null or not an object
Code: 0
URL: (Same as above)

I don't know if it's an IE thing that is messed up, or what.

How do I repair the computers scripting?

Hi Sootah,

open IE
go to tools --> internet options --> advanced and

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

They are already unchecked. It's a fatal error type of thing. The program does not continue.
