Internet Explorer Script Error is Spreading

    Question

  • In the last couple of weeks, users in my school district started getting the Windows Scripting Error while browsing in IE. Our district computers are Windows XP and Windows 7 and we are using IE8 and IE9. All of the troubleshooting recommendations are not working. It does not seem to be happeing with the local admin user, only the domain user. Domain user and computer are under no policies. Since I thought it was a user profile issue, I deleted the user account of the domain user and also the user folder. I also deleted all reference to the user in the registry. Yet when I recreated the user and logged back on, the user still gets the scripting error. Any ideas on why this has started and how to fix the scripting error that is taking over all our machines? Also, I did scan for viruses and talked to my antivirus support and it does not seem to be a virus or malware.

    Since posting this earlier in another forum, I have tried another fix that I read about (reregistering IE .dll files) and that also has had no affect.  I also created a new domain user and added them to the computer and they work fine so it is something in the profile of the original user.

  • Go to a failing webbrowser and press F12 prior to the error happening. If you can... Otherwise go to the page recreate the error, press F12 then refresh the page.  This should show you the exact spot of the script error.  Additionally you can set breakpoints and actually single step through the Javascript code to find root cause.  You may need a Javascript expert to help out.

  • Hi,

    I suspect it is caused by permission. How about adding domain users into Administrators group for a test?

    We are having the exact same problem.  Are you by chance using an M86 web filter?  The issue also occurs on a PC outside the domain using a local admin account.  The only link between the domain and non domain PC is the Internet Filter.

  • Did some more testing and found no scripting errors when the web filter was turned off. Now we just need to figure out what is going on with the filter.
