Hello experts.  A user is getting the following error (see atatchmnet)  coming up on a Windows 7 Pro workstation.  It comes up even if all Internet browsers are closed.  Any idea what this is and how to get rid of it?

Thanks,

Go to Control Panel, Internet Options, Advanced and uncheck Display Script Errors.

Is Java installed?  Make sure it is updated.

That will stop the error but what is causing it and how do I remove the issue?

You should try what I suggest and post back. If IE or its base is not causing the issue, there may be some issue with the operating system.

Do you have Java installed and is it updated?

Then try System File Checker

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run SFC /SCANNOW.
Allow to complete, restart or, preferably, shut down the computer and then start up again.
Test to see if the problem has been corrected.

It sometimes happens when you have some adware program running in the background; the ads they are trying to display might change to errorneous content, so the error appears.

The script error was being caused by the Weather Channel Desktop program.  Removing that resolved the issue.
