How can I fix message pop-up saying, "Out of Memory at Line

Mar 15, 2012 2:21AM PDT

Every time I go to a website, I am gettting a little pop-up message saying, "Out of memory at line: 1". I hope someone can tell me in simple terms why this is happening and how I can fix it. I am not a computer whiz so step by step instructions would be very helpful.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium and my computer is an HP Pavilion dv6000.
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T5450 @ 1.66GHz
Installed Memory: 2GB
System Type: 32 bit operating system

I have Internet Explorer 9 and use MSN Premium.
My Task Manager shows that I have Physical Memory of 55%.

I hope this info helps and someone is able to help me.

Is this a Javascript error?

If so go to IE's Internet Options then the Advanced tab and tick the two options for "Disable script debugging, (IE and Other)".

If that is what it is then it is pieces of Javascript code that is badly coded and IE offers the option to 'debug' it, but we can't debug web site code. Only the web site administrators themselves can do that.

I am not sure if this is a Javascrpt error or not. But nonetheless I did go to "tools, internet options, advanced" and note there are check marks already beside the two options, "Disable script errors." Also, lately, I have to keep hitting my refresh button as my screen hangs on a blank page when i do try to go to a website.

What can I do?

Does this only occur
Apr 1, 2012 8:03PM PDT

in your Internet Explorer browser?

If so, try this;

Go to Start > All programs > Accessories > System Tools and then find "Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)", and click that.

This will open IE in it's Safe Mode option with all add-ons, toolbars and ActiveX disabled. This will allow you to test whether in this mode IE still causes problems. In this mode some web sites may not display properly and may not work as they should, but this is only for testing.

If you do not see the same problems in this mode as you surf, then this points to an add-on, a toolbar or ActiveX component that is causing the problems.

In that case, close that down, re-open IE in it's proper mode, then head over to Tools > Manage Add-ons. Disable all add-ons of every type.

Now, add-on add-ons back in, one at a time, until the problem resurfaces. When it does you will know which add-on is the problem and you can disable that or if it is an option, delete it.

Have you thought about downloading and installing any other browsers? It may be useful if ever IE breaks, as at least then you still have a browser which works so you can search for answers.

Does that help?

Thank you Mark. I will try your suggestions and get back to you on the results.

Meanwhile, you suggested that I try another browser. As mentioned, I have MSN Premium which uses MSN Explorer, which I use 98% of the time. Also have Internet explorer too of course but I wonder if these are actually one in the same.
If I were to download another browser such as Firefox, I imagine I would no longer have any of the same benefits of MSN Premium that I pay for. Is that correct?

Ahh I missed that, but not at all.

Sorry Nancy I missed where you said you have both the MSN Browser and IE. I don't know much about the MSN browser except when i used it on my very first system back in 1995/96. I assume it s still used for closed community browsing, (or perhaps "Complete Community" would be a better term), the same way AOL used to be.

You need the MSB browser to sign in to MSN Premium and other browsers installed on your system will not affect that. In fact, you can have multiple browser types open and surfing at the same time, and they will completely ignore each other.
