Sorry IE 5.5 is dead meat.

Here's why -> "Microsoft has confirmed that within the leaked code there's at least one flaw, which affects how Internet Explorer (versions 5.0 and 5.5) and Outlook Express process bitmap image"

This code leak resulted in EXPLOITS being published that malware writers have ready access to.

Because of this plus Microsoft declining to patch any version before 6.0, you have to upgrade IE to 6.0 plus more patches just to be sure that your issue is not this one.


Or you could just install Firefox or Mozilla.

1. When browsing various Web sites, an error messages similar to the following may be displayed, [Q309299]:

Note: To generally resolve this issue, disable the script-debugging and script-error-notification options to see if it cures all.

a. Start Internet Explorer, click Tools, Internet Options, and then the Advanced tab.

b. Click to place a check mark in the box to enable the Disable script debugging.

Specifies whether you want to turn off your script debugger, if one is installed. Script debuggers are used by Web site developers to test programs and scripts on their Web pages.

c. Click to clear the Display a notification about every script error check box.

Specifies whether to display the actual script errors when a page does not appear properly due to problems with its scripting. This feature is off by default, but is useful to developers when testing Web pages.

d. Click Apply and then click OK to Exit.

Thanks for your help guys!
I disable the script-debugging in IE and that solved it. I'm going to up grade to IE 6 also.
