Windows 7: IE8 Script errors and other problems

IE8 Script errors and other problems

I have been running IE8 with no issues since I got my computer 14 months ago. Now things have gone bad.

I am getting "Out of memory at line xx" and "Stop running this script? A script on this webpage is causing your browser to run slowly..."

It seems to occur on one specific website and then all other sites will experience problems. I have had it occur for the first time in a session at another website so I would say it is not website specific.

If I run with no add-ons I will still get these errors.

Some background: I was getting an info bar error about an add-on failing to load on certain sites and traced it to doubleclick.net being in restricted sites, placed there by SpywareBlaster. Once I removed it from restricted sites, no more info bar error. But then I started noticing Unknown Zone (Mixed) status on several sites. Then the script errors started. If I put doubleclick.net back in restricted zones I will still get the script errors and will be back to getting my add-on error.

For troubleshooting I happened to see there was a Java update so I uninstalled the version I had and installed the most current.

I also had reset IE8 but noticed no improvement so restored back so I could at least have all my settings and history back.

I'm kind of out of ideas. I know I can move to another browser but I have used IE for almost 20 years and would like to stay with it if possible.

Hello bru,

you might consider IE9. But you can try this tutorial no matter what IE version you have: Internet Explorer - Reset (by Brink)

Thanks Brink.

Any thoughts about this Fix It I found? It makes registry changes so I'm a little leery.

Error message: "A script on this page is causing Internet Explorer to run slowly"

Registry fixes by Microsoft are fine (they originally put them in your computer to begin with). You can have Microsoft fix it for you so that you do not have to fear messing it up yourself. That file on that website is safe to download.

Interestingly running the offending website in Compatibility View seems to stop the script errors. This is a site I have visited literally every day for a year and never had a problem. Why it now is causing issues is beyond me. But if Compatibility View resolves it so be it. Computers are sometimes all about workarounds.

Perhaps it is on their end (They haven't updated their website in a while, perhaps)?

But glad it is working.

I'd probably agree but I never had a problem there until recently. So the detective in me says there is a problem on my end. But what ?

Since I'm out of ideas I was thinking about how people sometimes say Miscrosoft Updates causes problems with their systems. I wonder if any of those from last week could have messed something up?

Microsoft updates do not cause problems, unless there was a problem before hand, and the update messed with it. It is possible that through a series of updates, that particular website has become "outdated". There is a point in time which something becomes outdated if not kept up, and perhaps it was met. That is what the compatability view button was created for.

Another clue to my issue perhaps?

I tried to Organize Favorites in IE and I got Error:100 Invalid Class String.

I sort of panicked and did a system restore to a few days ago and it now works. Also for the last day I had not been able to access a website I went to daily for the last year. After the restore I could access it again.

Further investigation showed the Organize Favorite error was related to a missing JScript.dll. Which
is used by Windows to display web pages running Javascript. If the DLL is missing, then you will not be able to view certain content online.

I can find the file on my system using search and it says it was created on Jan. 12 2012, which I don't understand. Shouldn't it have been a system file that came with the computer?

I'm sure this is all related to the script errors I've been having.

I don't know how it was deleted, but I'm glad you got it back
