URL Script Errors

By rar ·
How can one W98 user get a script error when accessing a particular web site and others do not? I thought that script errors were at the host site but a friend showed me that he always gets an error at www.cpl.org but I do not. There must be something internal in his machine that is causing this. What do we do to fix it?

In IE5, click on TOOLS/INTERNET OPTIONS/ADVANCED. Under BROWSING you will see a box "Display a notification about every script error". Uncheck the box if you don't wish to be notified.

The above solution only hides the problem and doesn't fix it.

It could be that the user getting the error doesn't have all of the necessary updates from Microsoft's site to provide for support of certain scripting.

You do this by selecting Windows Update from the tools menu in Internet Explorer and selecting to download the updates pertaining to support for scripting.

Also, be sure to get all of the critical updates as well.

Good Luck!

Depending on the browser that you're using, you'll need to go to the company's software update web page by clicking on the Help menu and Product Updates. The user is probably just missing a service pack of some sort. By right clicking on the icon,on the desktop, you can get to properties >> advanced, and make sure that all of the settings under there are correct as well. Start by enabling everything referring to Java and Scripting, but FIRST make sure you have all the required plug-ins. Ifthe problem hasn't gone away yet, reinstall the browser.

Hope this helps. Good luck!
