Windows 7: IE8 Script errors and other problems

24 Feb 2012   #21

Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit

You don't need Ccleaner to get rid of that stuff. Disk cleanup or even the internet options can do that for you. I have 199680KB with weeks of browsing. Check your settings in internet options. under the general tab, under browsing history, click settings. set temp internet files to automatic, and only use 50-250MB disk space. days to keep pages in history, set it to less than 20. KB is a small unit of measurement. It is like saying you drank 200 Ml, but it is only .2 L. It isn't alot.

in internet options, you can have it delete history by clicking delete, checking everything that you want deleted, and ok. Again, I recommend not doing this because if everything is deleted all the time, then nothing is saved. It just makes you have to enter any information into the browser over and over again, which I find annoying and slow. But up to you.

I also recommend MSE and malwarebytes. I KNOW that superantispyware is aggressive, be very careful with it. It CAN damage your system. It may find viruses better, but it can also mistake an important file for a virus more easily.

If Spyware blaster is dealing with ActiveX scripting, that should give a clue as to a major potential culprit right there for scripting problems. do you have addons that maybe you don't need? they can affect the errors too

I am surprised that you heard horror stories or IE9 (perhaps they were in anticipation)? I can think of no reasons, other than a slightly different look that you will need to get used to. I'll post a picture of what I mean:
IE8 Script errors and other problems-s-2-.jpg

I would guess your problems are not IE at all, but the security software you have installed. While security is very important, too much is like locking a child in a crib, because outside of the crib, they can get hurt. You loose functionality, and the child may scream (script errors)

Holy cow, that is a stinkin awesome analogy!

Usage wise, IE has shown itself to be on the decline, with Google chrome drastically on the increase. Recently, however, IE has begun to increase, and Google chrome has surpased firefox as the web's #2 browser (with IE still in 1st place). Why is IE doing better? Because of IE9.

I wanted to add this:
You can update to IE10 whenever you want, it doesn't matter if you update to IE9 first or not. This shouldn't be a reason you don't install IE9, nor should it be the reason you install it.

Also, as you say, that antivirus/malware software you have is all highly regarded, but problems happen no matter what you have. The more you have, the more chance you will have trouble at least sometime. For example, MSE recently released a virus list that included google as potentially unsafe. It was quickly remedied, but people began to ocmplain. Accidents happen. For more aggressive programs, I would recommend not using them unless you are very knowledgeable in the computer field and know what you are removing/blocking.

Hope this helps

I am so frustrated by this. Websites that I used to visit dozens of times a day just don't work.

If I use Yahoo to search for something, say Target. It brings up a little map. If I click on the map I should get a larger map, right? Wrong. I get an error. I see .js in the long string so it has to be related to javascript. My browsing experience has been ruined.

Here's another. Can anyone help? It is obviously something wrong with javascript. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Java.

JavaScript Versus Java

"The process of writing a Java applet can be complicated-writing the source code, compiling, and making the applet available on the server. JavaScript provides a much simpler alternative for small projects. The JavaScript source code is interpreted directly by the browser. The source can either be included directly within an HTML page or referenced in a separate file.

Although JavaScript doesn't really have any features that eclipse Java, it adds some conveniences, simplifies programming, and provides better integration with the browser. The key differences include the following (explained in the following sections):
  • JavaScript can be combined directly with HTML.
  • The JavaScript language structure is simpler than that of Java.
  • The JavaScript interpreter is built into a Web browser.
  • JavaScript is supported on more platforms than Java."
Java Script Vs Java ~ Dot Net Support

In other words, Java (the program you add to Programs and Features) has nothing to do with Javascript code which is part of most web pages. Most people don't need Java on their PC at all, but if you do install it you should keep it up to date since it is frequently updated for security reasons. Javascript (scripting on web pages) can also be a security problem but those issues are covered by the updates that come with your browser.

Your problem is a bit complex for me, but if it were my problem I'd start by uninstalling Java and resetting IE (tools/internet options/advanced/reset).

I definitely understand the difference between JavaScript and Java. I am getting JavaScript errors when using IE. I'd like to know how to resolve them. I found one site that has a script written that essentially reregisters files associated with IE. I suppose I can try that.
