    Greetings kaplang1 !

    Do you get to the webpage after the script error?

    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

    3. Re-register all DLLs listed in

    I've tried all the solutions except editing the registry and reinstalling WinXP.
    Perhaps I should add that the problem only occurs on one web site: and when we click to proceed, the site loads properly.
