To Debug or not to Debug

By Dr.Jackson ·
In XP Pro, everytime I'm in a Web-site and I click a link, an ERROR pops up and says "Run time has occured" Do you wish to Debug...Line 1...unterminated string constant...Or it's Line 17...error object expected...ETC.ETC. I don't have the slightest idea what it means, or how to get rid of it either...I'm looking your way for help.Thanks. Kenny

To get rid of the error messages, open Internet Explorer.

Click on Tools.
Select Internet options.

On the Advanced Tab, under Browsing, make sure that the box in front of "Disable script debugging" is checked.

The errors come from either web pages using out of date or bad scripts, or you have an older version of Windows Scripting host installed.

CAUTION: Scripts are one way that viruses and worms are spread. Keep your security precautions high.
You can either run Windows Update, or go to the Downloads page at and get the latest version of scripting.

It usually means that the website designer made a mistake in the page'e script, and Windows is offerring to let you debug it. In XP, though, it may mean that the site contains features that are blocked by default and therefore fail to function correctly. In Internet Explorer, check Tools/Internet Options/Advanced for the Disable Script Debugging setting. Selecting this will eliminate the popup dialog box, though you may still have problems viewing the site if there really are errors on the page.
