Original Title: Script errors

Hi,

Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

I understand the inconvenience caused. I will be glad to assist you with this.

Script error messages are displayed by Internet Explorer when there is a problem with the JavaScript or VBScript code on the website you are viewing. Occasionally a script error can be caused by an error in downloading a webpage, but more often it is an error in the webpage itself.

I would suggest you to try the steps below to disable script error notifications and check if the issue persists.

1. Press Windows key + R to open the run command.

2. Type inetcpl.cpl and press  enter to open advanced internet options.

3. Click the Advanced tab, select the Disable script debugging Internet Explorer) and Disable script debugging (Other) check boxes.

4. Clear the Display a notification about every script error check box, and then click OK.

I would also suggest you to refer to the link for more troubleshooting steps regarding this issue:

Hi thanks for your quick reply. I have already doe what you suggest and no good. I then unticked the boxes and started getting debug messages which I do not know how to do, so have ticked the boxes again. I have used "edge" all day and no script errors so is there a problem with ie11 in windows 10? I have never had anything like this Yesterday on a particular sit I had to virtually hold esc and try to close the page. The error was almost constant. My laptop is an HP Envy only a month old so I am assuming the fault is not there.

If you are using Google Toolbar, try disabling it.

Tools->Manage add-ons

Select Toolbars and Extensions

Right-click:  "Google Toolbar" -> Disable

Right-click:  "Google Toolbar Helper" -> Disable

Now either shutdown all instances of IE or reboot your system before launching IE again.  I had the same problem as you and after disabling the toolbar the script errors have not returned.

Hi, thanks for these suggestions. I have already tried enabling extended protection and that helped but did not 100% cure the problem. I disabled add ons and again seemed to help, but I think your last suggestion to reset Explorer has done the trick. I have since then gone back to default settings an re enabled Google Toolbar and " touch wood " all seems to be well. The only slight problem is I cannot get my favourites to stay permanently on the left of my screen where I like it.

Thank you very much for your assistance, much appreciated.

Hi - we had been having this problem on our PC.  We have windows 10 installed, and the script errors were persistent on IE11 only, not affecting Chrome or Edge.  We completely uninstalled Google Toolbar (rather than just disabling it) and had no script errors.  After about a week we decided to try reinstalling the Google Toolbar.  The script errors returned on IE11, so for us at least Google Toolbar is the cause of the problem, without a doubt.  There is obviously some sort of conflict going on there. Perhaps in the fullness of time the glitch will be sorted by an update.

Hi, I did exactly the same last weekend and have had no errors so I think we must have found the answer. There must be a conflict between the Toolbar and either ie11 or windows 10. I went into Google help but found nothing of any use so we will have to wait and see if they come up with a fix.
