"Internet Explorer 8 (Windows XP) and Internet Explorer 9 (Windows Vista / Windows 7) users must be pay attention on Active Scripting. This is Microsoft’s name for its own implementation of JavaScript, which is widely used on the Internet to provide interactivity on web sites. Active Scripts are programs written in JavaScript, or sometimes Microsoft's VBScript and ActiveX, that enable websites to add specific functionality. Open your Internet Explorer 8 / 9, click the Tools menu > Internet Options > Security tab > Internet zone > Select Medium-High and then click on Custom Level > Scroll down to the Scripting section and change the following settings:

Check the box next to Disable for Active Scripting.

Click OK and click on Yes when prompted to confirm these security setting changes"
