Runtime Error Message/Debugging/VBscript/WS Script

by purrington666 / November 10, 2010 9:19 PM PST

I have a DELL Inspiron E1505 operating on Windows XP.

I am getting the following Error Message:

Just in time Bugging. [An Exception "Runtime error" has occurred in Script]

Below this there is a box that says:

"Possible Debuggers" "New Instance of Microsoft Script Editor."

When I then click on "Debug" I get a message that says: "Microsoft VBscript runtime error: Object required WScript. It then asks me if I wish to "Break" or "Continue." I do not know what to do as this is beyond my computer knowledge.

What should I do to resolve this?

Thank you

Kees:

I appreciate your response.

The problem had its genesis a couple of days ago when I went to the Dell website to update my drivers. In that process I downloaded the "Dell Support Center."

Immediately subsequent to that when I went to Facebook and began playing "Mafia Wars." the problem I described above occurred and has since reoccurred repeatedly.

I do not know if this issue is solely related to Facebook and "Mafia Wars" or not but thus far that has been where the error message has popped up.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you

That's half an answer. You get it when playing Mafia Wars on Facebook. But you didn't tell the other half: what program do you use (could be Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and a host of other browsers). Why is this such a difficult question to answer?

Anyway, I assume it's IE. Then, from the menu bar go to Tools>Internet Options (or in Control Panel, goto to Internet, it's the same thing) and check the settings in the Browsing section of the Advanced tab (that's for IE8). There are settings like:
Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer): check
Disable script debugging (Other): check
Display a notification about every script error: uncheck

The default, as far as I know, is to have script debugging disabled. For some reason, it seems it was enabled by you or with you. So just disable it again.

Please accept my apology for not answering your question fully.

When you asked what program I was running I mistakenly thought you were referring to the "Windows XP" program that my computer is running on.

In answer to which browser I am using I am using the Chrome Browser.

What steps should I take with Chrome Browser to correct this problem?

Best regards

Maybe chrome is friendly enough to do what you tell Windows in the Internet Settings. It's in Control Panel, so it quite possible that it extends somewhat wider than only IE. Worth a try, isn't it?

If the change doesn't have any effect in Chrome, but with the change you can play that game in IE without error message, there's an obvious work-around: play it in IE. That's why we have multiple browsers on the machine: we choose the one best for each task.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
