Script Error in Internet Explorer Windows XP
Posted on 2011-05-05
I have a freshly re-installed (from the recovery drive) HP Computer pavilion computer running Windows XP that is throwing up Script Errors while in Internet Explorer. I was thinking that it was a certain web page, but it is other well-known pages as well.
The error messages is a follows:
Internet Explorer Script Error
! An Error has occured in the script on this page
Line 496 (but varies)
Char 15 (but varies)
Error: Expected ")" (this also varies)
URL: gives the address of the page I'm on
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?
If I say No, it will continue with the various errors, finally culminating in the "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close...do you want to send an error report" message; otherwise, I have to go into Task Mgr and close the window from there in order to get out of it.
In the Properties/Advanced/Browsing, I have made sure that there are check marks in both "Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer)" and "Disable script debugging (other)" as well as no check in the "Display a notification about every script error", this was actually the default setting and had not been changed.
Other Info that may be helpful:
Prior to re-install, this was not an issue.
I simply re-installed this computer to give it a "fresh start"
I read that someone created a new local profile and that fixed their problem, but didn't work for me.
Previously, the web pages seemed to be working, but I would get an occasional "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close error"...but only AFTER I had close the IE window.
I re-installed the OS on this computer only 3 days ago.
Thanks for the help!
