Internet Explorer and Expert Exchange's website

Posted on 2009-04-14
Last Modified: 2013-12-08
For the past two days I have experienced problems with Experts Exchange website.  Graphics are on top of words and I receive a javascript error -- Unterminated string constand.  I have uninstalled and re-installed all of my java components.  I have made sure the IE 7 is up-to-date.  I know that it is a setting in Internet Explorer, but I just cannot figure out which setting.

Any help is appreciated

I have more or less the same - I am behind a firewall and I think some stuff is poorly passed.

Download details: Windows Script 5.7 for Windows XP

This fixes common scripting problems. I doubt it is a firewall problem, unless it has some sort of content filtering as well. What kind of firewall?

I open literally hundreds of pages a day, and I dont see it.....

Hi Johnb6767 --

Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately, my computer has all of the latest updates and fixes.  Is there anything else I should be looking at?

Thats not a listed hotfix, or even an optional one I dont think, so unless you EXPLICITLY installed it, it might still be running either 5.6, or just flat out corrupted.... This has fixed alot of scripting problems for me over the while....

Yes, I am running 5.7 and I had the same issue with several sites since Win2K and IE6
I believe it is a timing issue between the dynamically loaded CSS and script files due to virus scanning in my case.
