E-mail attachments causing a problem.

  bluto1 20:47 04 Dec 2008

For the past few days, whenever I get an attachment on an e-mail, and click on the 'paper clip', a window pops up and informs me as follows:

Internet Explorer Script Error.
An error has occurred in the script of this page.


Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?


Whatever I click on, The page freezes and I have to restart my PC

XP Home, SP3 and Incredimail.
Can anyone help please?

Open Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab > Settings
Put a tick in 'Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer)'
Put a tick in 'Disable script debugging (Other)'
UNTICK 'Display a notification about every script error'

click on 'Apply' and 'OK'

those are the settings on mine (XP SP3)

Thanks for the reply but my settings are the same as yours. I've sent Incredimail an email so I'll wait to see what they come up with. I can't help thinking it I.E. Thanks again.

Are you by any chance with AOL or TalkTalk?

Neither, I,m with Plusnet.

I've tried , but can't get into System Restore. I've reinstalled Int. Exp. but the problem is still there. I remember doing a Security update a short while ago, it's not in Add/Remove. (I've ticked to show with this one.need help

It would appear that Internet Explorer has a problem with an add on. I can't think what add ons I've loaded recently.

I installed Google Desktop a few days ago, and have now uninstalled it. No difference made.

I'm going to bed in the hope that I'll "sleep on it" and something miraculous will occur to me in the morning. Your ideas are still as welcome as a lottery win. 'Night all.

"I've tried , but can't get into System Restore"

What's the problem with accessing previous restore dates?

Have you tried F8 at boot up - Safe Mode - Admin Account and then Restore (from list of dates)?

I've just tried your suggested path and an empty Systems Restore window came up.
I'm going to run a malware sweep and avast anti virus, something might turn up.Thanks for help.

I finally cracked it having spent hours (not really wasted) running anti malware and anti virus programs. I uninstalled IE 7 with the intention of installing IE 6 but installed 7 again and it worked. On my way around I found RegCure and it purports to fix IE7. I used File Hippo's search facility and with a minimum of navigating there was the answer. Thanks for the help, just to have someone around now and again helped enormously.
