Can't change Internet Explorer option to disable script error Display notification?

I can't change the Internet Explorer option to disable script error Display notification? Every time I do, or restore defaults, and press Apply and/or OK, when I go straight back to the advanced options it is set to display again..? Why won't it allow me to change it..? How do I get it to 'take'?

Greetings Dave_B_C !

If you do not select Restore Defaults, then the script options will not restore to default setting.  Here are some ways to remove the script errors:

http://www.fjsmjs.com/IE/scriptdb.htm

Go to Tools | Internet Options | Advanced.
Check the box to Disable script debugging.
Uncheck the box to Display a notification about every script error.

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

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

extensions (uncheck & reboot).

It's the fact I can't turn off script error messages that is the problem, not the script errors themselves?
Deleting files doesn't help..
Changing other IE options doesn't help as they don't stick either, they get lost as soon as you exit the options window...?
All options just seem to return to a previous setting, which isn't the default..? This is the main problem!

Dave,

Check if a local policy is locking the settings in your computer, not allowing them to be changed.

1)Start-Control Panel-Administrative Tools-Local Security Policy.
2) In the Local Security Policy dialogue box, on the left pane under the Security Settings, expand Local Policies, click User Rights and Assignment.
3) On the right pane, under Policy, right click anything that you like to modify and then click properties.
4)On the properties page you can remove or add users from the list, then click ok or apply.

The steps above can be performed on the local workstation using and Administrator account.

Doesn't seem to be anything relevant, and administrator, which I am, can do most things anyway..?

Just noticed the View status bar option doesn't stick either if changed,  although Toolbar option changes do..?

Dave,

Check if an addon is interfering with IE settings.  Go to Tools > Addins Manager, and disable the addins.  Restart the browser and test.

If not, an extenal program could be interfering with IE settings.  Disable antivirus, antispyware, adblocker, popup blocker, Google and Yahoo toolbars, and all Norton programs.  Then test.

Nope, you were on the right track, it was permissions in the registry...! My user was denied under Main in Windows IE.. I think it may have been when I was trying to sort out another problem a while back..? Anyway when I changed it to 'allow all' then everything is fine, including the status bar.. Happy
to give you the points if you can get this into a suggestion! :)
