Open IE, go to Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, check Disable script debugging, and uncheck Display a notification about every script error. Click Apply and OK, close IE and open again. Those debugging errors shouldn't appear anymore.

Go to tools Click internet options, Click advanced tab, and check disable bugging script.

This should work.

I have done both the checking and unchecking and I am still getting the notices. This has happened on two different computers, so I don't think it is a problem with a particular version of IE 6. It has happened both before and after SP2. It does not happen on my work computer running Win2000. What else other than the two script boxes on "Advanced" might work?

I also found that this method does not always work. I believe it reduces the number of notifications that it doesn't eliminate them.

Therefore I too will be very interested in finding out how to eliminate them

Depends on the problem!

1. In order for us to analyze a potential problem and offer tips, we must rely only on the question content to attempt a qualifying response. A question should state the exact system error(s) - spelled, spaced, and capitalized just as it is shown on the display. Helpful perhaps is the window title in the colored bar of the report and any information when provided by a "Details" section also.

2. Most error messages:

? usually list and describe standard default error messages - written within the program code and generally recognized by most "Gurus"

==and==

? the troubleshooting techniques may be published and explained in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (MSKB) library for the Windows operating systems, and may be searched for with accurately reported information.

3. Correct and complete information is vital if informative help and answers are what you seek. You want that Guru who reads your plea to understand the question, to possibly know the answer, and to reply giving you their assistance.

4. Please note that just above the text editor (where you enter a question on the forum) is the following paragraph, and if certain information is not present in your question, our reply may not be of much help:

Tip: If you are asking for help to troubleshoot a computer-related problem, please be sure to include all the necessary information (ie: operating system, model number, hardware, software, etc) that will help others identify your problem for a speedy resolution.

1. The article [Q188135] describes procedure for minimizing warning and explains that Internet Explorer treats Windows Scripting Hosts (WSH) objects as unsafe ActiveX controls, and if a Web site tries to initialize or script a WSH object (for example, to access files on your local computer), Internet Explorer does not initialize or script the object at high or medium security settings and renders a warning.

Yes indeed Bob. I have been using both for some time now and I wish that Firefox could show me every page on the net but too often I get a message saying that a page could not be displayed (not necessarily in those words) so I have to past the link in MSIE to view it.

I wish the mailer would allow one to move to the next message instead of just the next unread message but what the hell it was written by a young guy who in his pic looks like a teenager
