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.

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?

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
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

1. You might want to refresh your scripting engine:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/downloads/list/webdev.asp
Windows Script 5.6 for Windows 2000 and XP
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c717d943-7e4b-4622-86eb-95a22b832caa&DisplayLang=en

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
http://www.mvps.org/inetexplorer/answers_9.htm)

3. Re-register all DLLs listed in http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=281679
