Default Script Error Popups

Recently, I've been getting a lot of Script Error popups when using IE11, like the one shown below, and it's REALLY annoying.

Sometimes the popups just won't go away, so I have to close IE using Ctrl & Alt & Del, then restart it.

Java is up to date. 'Display Script Error Messages' from Tools>Internet Options menu is not ticked. So don't know why this is happening.

Can anyone help? Please?

Might be a issue with Javascript and not Java (they are different things).

You can try to enable compatibility mode in IE11:

Or you can try to disable Javascript in IE11:

Any specific website(s) where this popup occurs or is it just random?

Darn... I think I'm out of ideas. How about changing browser? I recommend Google Chrome or Firefox. Internet Explorer is very hated browser and losing market share all the time.

Well thanks for trying Tseki, I really appreciate it.

IE may not be the most popular browser around, but I love it. Well... I love it when it behaves, and doesn't throw me annoying script error popups.


Has anyone else got any ideas?

One more idea came to mind - try installing Adblock Plus. Maybe it's some ad that causes those Javascript error popups.

You can also use SeaMonkey.

Are you using Windows 10? If so, there is Microsoft Edge. My big brother liked it at first. Now, he is using Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

At least, you can save your session using Mozilla Forefox and/or SeaMonkey. There is a wonderful Addon named Session Manager. Awesome!

The final and last option is to seek help from Microsoft. You will need PID for the official help.
