An error has occurred in the script on this page

by benshaton / September 13, 2012 2:59 AM PDT

I've attempted updating TechTracker numerous times and this popup appears on each startup.
Line: 11
Char: 116
Error: Expected ')'
Code 0
URL: file:///C:/Users/ROBERT/AppData/Roaming/CBS%20Interactive/CNET%20TechTracker/data/temp.html

Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

TechTracker also will not recognize a successfully loaded update from Malwarebytes which I had to manually update from their site.

I am on a HP s3620f slimline desktop with a Vista x86 64-bit OS, and use Chrome as a browser.

I would like to be able to get a fix for this error. A successful resolution would be greatly appreciated.

This usually occurs when there is a problem with the web designers code. You cannot fix this yourself but you can turn off the error message. Open internet properties on your pc. Click on the advanced tab. Go to the browsing section and place a check mark next to Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer), Disable script debugging (Other), and Display a notification about every script error. This should solve your problem with the script error warning.

The "web designer" is CNET. What can we do to get rid of the error, not just hide it?

CNET bought a house!

Take a look inside the house where we will be testing connected locks, thermostats and other smart home products so we can tell a complete story.
