Windows 7: IE8 Script errors and other problems

Script errors continue. To the point I can't surf without having an issue. I guess it's good bye to IE after 20 years.

bru, sorry to hear that. I don't get those errors, so I know it isn't a general thing that is happening to everyone, but to you specifically. Which means there is something going on in your system. Could it be the antivirus? Which do you have? List all the security software you have on your pc. Run IE without add-ons (to see how it does). Try uninstalling IE: Internet Explorer 9 - Uninstall - tutorial created by DarkNovaGamer

Install it again through the microsoft website: Internet Explorer - Web Browser for Microsoft Windows

Once again, let me know all of the security software on your computer. Also, a repair install isn't a bad idea: Repair Install - tutorial created by Brink

I didn't get the errors until recently so yes I'm sure it is related to my system, specifcally IE.

I have reset IE. No difference. I have uninstalled/reinstalled Java. No difference. I have no desire to move to IE9 and even if I did I imagine the problems would follow along.

I certainly will not do a repair install of my system to fix a browser problem. I really have no choice but to move to a new browser.

Alrighty then. I would recommend firefox as an alternative. Best of luck to you

Very sorry . I do appreciate the suggestions. This has got me very frustrated and I let it get the better of me.

I suppose when things run smooth you expect them to continue, but that's typically not the case. I think I've tried most of the major troubleshooting steps so no other choice but to keep on plugging away. Maybe I'll stumble across something.

No problem

You might click the repair install link I gave to see exactly what it does, and if you are able to do it. It doesn't affect as much as you may think.

You might try IE9, it it does have potential to fix your problem. It will take some getting used to, but it is safer, looks better (at least to me), and has less clutter. It still has everything you could want in IE8, just some differences that you may eventually come to appreciate. Additionally, if you do not like it, you could uninstall it here: Internet Explorer 9 - Uninstall - tutorial created by DarkNovaGamer

See why IE9 is my favorite browser: Discover Internet Explorer 9 - Microsoft Windows
Compare browsers, or compare IE8 and IE9: Compare browsers to Internet Explorer 9 - Microsoft Windows

I only used firefox prior to IE9. IE9 is the reason I like IE

I would love to suggest if I believe your antivirus has potential to be troublesome, or any of your other security software you may have installed, but alas, you haven't told me what you have installed. It is not my intention to pressure you into a 'correct' antivirus, but to make recommendations based on what I've experienced. You have the option to take my opinions up or disregard them. But whatever you choose, if you would like such a suggestion, do let me know what you have

*Edit - you did mention spywareblaster earlier. Do you have it installed? Sadly, I don't know much about the program, but you might try disabling it to see what happens.

Did you do this?: Click the "Internet Options" link from the menu and then click the "Advanced" tab.
Find and check "disable script debugging". You might also try diabling hardware Acceleration

Delete all temporary internet files. Make sure windows is completely updated

Make sure you haven't disabled any services.

Also, do this tutorial just for thehelovit: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker - tutorial created by Brink

I realize I may have mentioned some of these twice. That is just because I'm lazy...

No worries about repeat suggestions, I'll try anything twice .

Script debugging is disabled. IMBW but I don't think IE8 has the option to disable hardware acceleration. I think that came in to play with IE9.

SpywareBlaster was definitely causing a problem in how pages were displaying because it had placed a site in Restricted Zones. But disabling it completely doesn't help with the script problem.

I think Windows is up to date. I have hidden a few updates but they were updates that I didn't think were relevant. I'll go back and take a look and see if there is an update I should install.

I clean Temp Files with CCleaner daily.

SFC /VERIFYONLY comes up clean. I think that is basically the same as SFC/ SCANNOW (I try to be aware of what needs fixing rather than just letting it do its thing).

Regarding IE9. I think I may go for it. How would you suggest installing it? Through Windows Update where it has been offered for a while. Or should I download it from MS? Perhaps it makes a difference if I ultimately want to uninstall it.

Ccleaner is a good program to have when you are having trouble, but I wouldn't use it daily by any means. It actually has the ability to mess things up if you aren't careful.

Is spywareblaster an actual Antivirus or just antimalware? You may need an antivirus. If I can recall, I thought I heard that spywareblaster is very aggressive, and extreme care needs to be excersized when using it. It could potentially be the/a problem. It may be that the damage has already been done.

Constant removal of temp files won't let you save much information on the internet. Perhaps "Private browsing" is a better option. Temp files only really need to be removed when you notice slowdowns or you have internet problems.

You can install IE9 any way you would like, they both work.

I use CCleaner in the most benign way, just temp files, cookies and a few other things. I didn't think cleaning temp files frequently could hurt. I routinely have more than 50,000 KB in just a few hours of browsing.

Someone here gave a good tutorial of SpywareBlaster, of course I can't find it. Among other things it prevents known sites from doing bad things through ActiveX scripting. For real time AV I use MSE. I also use MBAM and SUPERAntiSpyware for on demand scanning. Along with SpywareBlaster they all are well regarded programs.

IE9 looks interesting but of course I've heard some horror stories. I always have moved to the most current IE (my first computer had IE6), but for some reason I have not made the leap to IE9 yet. I was thinking of just waiting for IE10.
