Script Errors

I am getting script errors in IE, (Access Denied) but really it shouldn't matter what the error is, IE should have a way to HIDE them completely, and give you a default setting to either keep running the script or not, in my case it doesn't seem to make any difference, because of this error...but realistically it should always be set not to run the script any further if it's messed up.


Please fix this, no other script errors have ever appeared, but it seems the ones for access denied are ones that show regardless of my settings in IE if scripts are allowed at all, which I need them to be to browse the web properly.
