Frequent Script Error messages

I'm using IE 6.0 on a new computer. As far as I know I'm updated on it. Well every time I enter dvdtalk's frontpage I get a script error message but not on other computers.

I tried unchecking "show script error messages" in optioins but I still get them here. It seems it's me and not dvdtalk.

Can anyone tell me what's going on?

there are 2 boxes under advanced options.

1. Disable Script Debugging --This should be checked
2. Display a notification about every script error --This should be unchecked.

Beyond that, I'm not sure. try surfing at ebay and see if you still get the errors. I used to get them like crazy (3x per page) until I did the above.

Hate to rehash an old thread, but I'm having this problem at home. Tons of scripting issues with IE 6, XP SP1. Have performed the steps located two replies above mine but to no avail.

Will a re-install of IE help? I've got a hunch that a re-install will fix the scripting engines. I also think it's related to the google toolbar.

as El Scorcho pointed out, it could be a toolbar that is installed.

It could be a BHO (Browser Helper Object). To test, un-check "enable 3rd party browser extentions...."Click OK.
Exit IE then reopen IE

It could be some spyware or parasites

It could be a corrupt IE file

To repair Internet Explorer 6+

or an alternate to Re-install Internet Explorer - Go to Start/Run, and type or copy/paste:
rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\inf\ie.inf

or

NOTE: if you use the sfc /scannow option, it *may* reset your monitor resolution to Windows Default.

Bingo! This seems to have worked so far. This is exactly what I was looking for but haven't been able to find for a while. All the MS support knowledge articles were pretty much worthless.

Can you explain the command line sequence for me and where you found it?

I really appreciate your help.

I had this tip saved from a long time ago and I did not keep the source. I had asked the question about the command sequence and this is the response that I received. Note: This is basically what happens when you remove/repair an item in the Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.

InstallHinfSection is an entry-point function exported by Setupapi.dll that you can use to execute a section of an .inf file. And [DefaultInstall] is a section within ie.inf file. Edit the ie.inf file in Notepad and look for [DefaultInstall] section and what it does (optional)

rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\inf\ie.inf

the 132 comes from:

--
128 - Set the default path of the installation to the location of the INF. This is the typical setting.
+4 - If a reboot of the computer is necessary, ask the user for permission before rebooting.
--

For more information, refer to the InstallHinfSection documentation at MSDN:
