I found there is a ton of sites addressing these two error/problems however it seems none of them applied to mine and none of their solutions solved either one. Since others may encounter the same problem I'll tell what I eventually found out and did. At least to the best of my ability.
Apparently the ISP CD and the software I downloaded from the ISP web site both DID began the install, I found the files in the Temp folder under Docs and Settings, I just wasn't ever presented with an install progress window of any kind. That may have been why I got the Script error (that in place of the progress window for the install). When I took the CD out of the tray there was an unfinished install, which I didn't reallize, so when I ran a scan of any kind and it got to those files a window was sent up asking for the CD.
What I did: I deleted everything in the Temp folder and just set up the connection to the new ISP manually! LOL Both problems are now gone. I hate those ISP CDs and the garbage they put on your PC anyway. They always tell you that you HAVE to use the CD but you don't. I got the connection and email set up without the CD.
Windows XP Home EDition, Version 2002, Service Pack 2, Dell Dimension 2350, Pentium 4 CPU, 2.00 GHz, 256 MB of RAM. My son's PC he brought over for me to install the new ISP software and update some programs. He has very slow dial up in the country.
First Problem: When I insert the CD for the ISP software it does not launch and I get an error box named: Internet Explorer Script Error and the message says An error has occurred in the script on this page along with some details. Screen Shot here:
I downloaded the software from the ISP website to the desktop and when I double click it nothing happens. I've tried several CDs in that drive and they all work, play music, whatever. I have downloaded several programs, updates and everything has installed without any problems.
Second Problem: Ever so often I get, usually after or while running a scan (virus, spyware or cleaning registry), an error box will pop up named "Windows - No Disk" and the message is: "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into the drive D:". The only way I can get rid of the box is to put a CD in the drive. Screen Shot here:
I have downloaded brand new versions or updated and ran, Spybot Search & Distroy, Ad-aware, CCleaner, AVG, cleaned registry, defraged, ran scan disk, dumped all cookies and cleaned cache. Browsers are Netscape and IE.
Apparently these problems didn't occur until after I had tried to use the ISP's CD. My son says he has never had those boxes show up before.
Thanks much for any help.
