How to Disable Script Errors

By Jason Candanedo

“Script” errors in the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser are caused by Explorer having a hard time reading the list of script commands on a web page. Web pages are made up of script commands. When this conflict occurs, the script error manifests. The result is frozen web pages and constant script error messages. Script errors can only be fully fixed by the web page developer, but you can unblock display settings and disable script error messages, which can stop the error from your end.

Unblock Display Settings

Step 1

Run Microsoft Internet Explorer. Double click the Explorer icon either on the desktop or in the “All Programs” list. Unblock Internet display settings is your next step. Various components of differing web pages may not run properly when display settings are blocked, resulting in script errors. Unblocking these settings allows all components on these web pages to run, thus eliminating the script errors.

Step 2

Click the "Tools" option, which is found in the top menu bar of the Internet Explorer screen. "Internet Options" will emerge in the drop down menu; select this option.

Step 3

Click "Security" in the "Internet Options" dialog box. Security settings for Internet Explorer will appear.

Step 4

Click on either the "Default Level" or "Reset all zones to default level" in the dialog. Click on “Apply” and close the box. Your display settings are now unblocked.

Disable Error Messages

Step 1

Run Microsoft Internet Explorer. Double click on its desktop icon or by clicking “Start” on the desktop, “All Programs” and “Internet Explorer.”

Step 2

Click on “Tools” and “Internet Options” in the Explorer page.

Step 3

Click the "Advanced" tab. "Settings" will be displayed.

Step 4

Locate the "Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer)" and "Disable script debugging (Other)" options In the “Settings” list. Place a check mark by these two options.

Step 5

Remove the check mark by the "Display a notification about every script error" option in the “Settings” list. Error display notifications are now eliminated.
