Is it MSN Explorer ? What version? & What at site? If we can re-create the problem, we can better help.
If there's no similar option in the browser, try:
Start > Control Panel > (Classic View) > Internet Options> Advanced > uncheck: "Disable Script Debugging" and "Display a notification about every script error"

Then restart the browser.

I did that but those settings apply to IE not msn browser it seems, beacuse if I go to the same web site with IE I do not get those messages.

The client loves his msn... Ive been in MSN's internet options but can not find anything on debugging. It's on the washington post website. All the error is is the display script errors. do you want to debug. Im not an html guy niether is the client lol.. so this option doen't need to be popping up.
Sample site where you get those messages?

Also, is there a checkbox in those messages? Read carefully what that checkbox says -- checking or unchecking it may get rid of the notices.

YOu just get a yes or no reply "Run time script error" Do you want to debug? yes no? I wonder if it is just a bug in msn? should it be using the same intrnet options as IE? If so than I think that would be the problem and may need to be submitted to msn?

I have the debugging option turned off and the display a notification for every script error un checked
but that's not MSN Explorer specific.

What else I can suggest for now is disable the boxes again in Internet Options, then restart Windows. I have MSN Explorer 7 & don't get the messages.

Greetings, ryro04 !

Disable the Script Debugger in IE (Line 142) - Win XP

1. You might want to refresh your scripting engine:
Windows Script 5.6 for Windows 2000 and XP

Sometimes there's a corrupt file in the cache and one must go to Tools | Internet Options and click Delete Files.

2a. Start>Run>Regsvr32 vbscript.dll

2b. Start>Run>Regsvr32 jscript.dll

(WinXP users who have problems with 2a and 2b, see

3. Re-register all DLLs listed in

4. See also

5a. IE Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>Browsing>Enable third-party browser
extensions (uncheck & reboot).

Best wishes!
