a JavaScript error occurred in the main process - Help

*Red is username

This error has been popping up for a while now - if i close it it normally pops up 5 minutes later or sometimes even straight away. for this reason for the past few weeks I've just been leaving it open in the background

How am i able to resolve this error and stop it from popping up?



Hi Jimmy

My name is Andre Da Costa; an Independent Consultant, Windows Insider MVP and Windows & Devices for IT MVP. I'm here to help you with your problem.

Do you have any app such as Discord installed?

Start by performing a clean boot



Press Windows key + X
Click Task Manager
Click Processes tab
Sort by CPU to see if this crashing app is accessing more resources.

It might point to which app is the culprit.

Last, you can try a system restore before this problem started.

Press Windows key + R
Type: rstrui.exe
Hit Enter

This will start the system restore wizard. Choose a restore point more before the problem started.
Best regards,
