    Help!!! "SCRIPT ERROR"

    Help! These little messages saying "Script error, would you like to continue running the script?" keep popping up. Whenever I'm browsing, playing games or even trying to fix the issue they just keep on popping up, I've tried to change the script settings in Internet explorer, but nothing has happened.

    Please help.

    Two possibilities come to mind. The first is simply that you have a page open in IE where there's a poorly written script trying to run and the second is you have a malware problem. So if you completely close IE and the problem still persists, it's a malware problem. If the problem goes away after closing IE, you'll have to go through the process of elimination to figure out which page you leave open regularly is the problem.

    Personally, I would say you should avoid using IE period. Microsoft has made significant strides since the early days of XP and IE6 where there were literally new remote exploits found every week for 2-3 years, but it's still a huge security hazard. Pick either Firefox or Chrome, it doesn't really matter which, just pick one and use it instead of IE.
