When using Internet Explorer (IE) to browse the Internet, there may be times when a "Error on Page" message will occur. Experiencing error messages when using IE is common. There are many reasons why "Error on page" will occur. For example, you may experience the "Error on page" message when Internet Explorer is unable to read something that is on the web page that you are trying to gain access to. "Error on Page" can also occur if Internet Explorer needs to be updated.

Step 1

Click on "Tools" at the top of the Internet Explorer browser. Go down to the last option on that list, and click on "Internet Options." The "Internet Options" window will open.

Step 2

Click on the "Advanced" button. Go down to the "Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer). Click inside the box to put a check mark in it. This disables "Script debugging."

Step 3

Step 4

Click on "Apply" and click on the "OK" button. The settings take effect when you click the "OK" button.

Step 5
