I don't think this is the same type of error.

I get the same message that lizacat gets. It works like this.

Using Internet Explorer, (yes I know, switch to Firefox, but I still use IE sometimes), I will click on a link and will get a Runtime error message giving the option to debug or not. Usually clicking yes does nothing or gives another error message saying debugging not allowed. If I click no, the web site continues to load normally.

This happened immediately after I installed the JPEG securtiy hole fix for Windows and Office applications. So I assumed it was something to do with that.

It hasn't caused me an problems, but I'm not sure if it has lizacats.

Don't ask me what type of Runtime error message. I have been trying to find one to give an example but of course I can't now, Happy
