script error in IE 7

I have suddenly started having a problem with Internet Explorer 7.  I am getting a error message that a runtime error has occurred.  Do I wish to debug.  When I click on no the message remains and it takes several attempts to get rid of it.  I have disabled the script debugging and display a notification about every script error functions.  I have also deleted all the temporary Internet related files.  I am using Windows XP sp 2 and have installed all updates.  It would appear likely that one the more recent updates caused the problem but if that was the issue I would think I would find more on the Internet re this issue.
So far I have not found anything on the web or on Microsoft knowledge base.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Have you added or removed any programs recently (other than IE7 updates)?

Hello Jim_Crute,

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

Verify that you have done the following:
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 5.7 for Windows XP
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=47809025-d896-482e-a0d6-524e7e844d81&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

4. See also

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

Hope this helps!

thanks  appears to have solved the problem.  The issue did not occur every time so I cannot say for sure which recommendation was the key one.  I just did all of them except for 2a and 2b (could not find the files to run).  I then when to about 25 web pages and did not have a problem.  Thanks this was about to drive me crazy.
