script error

by vir68 / December 7, 2003 2:25 AM PST

I am facing a problem while exploring internet.In process of surfing i come across an error message-runtime error: doyou want to debug ?-now to be honest i dont even know what this term debug means.But still I presumed it must be something related to javascript as on selecting yes option it tells me about script debug.Whenever this message comes across the web page will not open unless I selected no.On selecting yes it shows me some log about script debug .This happens every time i visit specific web pages.I used to have java web start from sun console earlier as some sites required it but later on i uninstalled it through control panel.I have an win XP with amd athlon processor 2300+ with 1.67 GB & 512 RAM and IE 6.0.Please help me out....Thanks in anticipation.

Re:script error. Turn it off?

Somewhere in IE's Tools, Options is the Disable Script Debugging. Most will turn that off unless you are developing scripts.

In IE, Click Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, then scroll to 'Disable Script Debugging', and put a check in the box.
Also, uncheck the box next to 'Display a notification about every script error'.
These may be helpful to webpage designers, or programmers, but not needed for most of us.

Wow! here it is 2004 and I'm using IE 6 and I am getting the same message this person got way back in 2003. I went through unchecking the internet option box and I STILL GET THIS MESSAGE. Like the original questioner, I've noticed it only happens with certain sites, like NAPSTER!! Can someone tell me why this is happening, what does it mean and how do I prevent it from coming up! Much appreciated

So do I but only on certain sites. How do I disable script debugging and error displays on ALL sites?

And if you mean to selectively disable this, I don't see this feature in IE.

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?
