Recently i have been experiencing a huge amount of runtime errors when i surf the net. the messages are laid out like the following,

A Runtime Error has occurred
----------------------------
Do you wish to debug?
Line XX (different for different websites)
'XXXXXXXXXXXXX' 13(different for different websites)
is null or not an object

can you help?

Open IE

tools

internet options

advanced

tick "disable debugging" or something to that effect.

I also have had this problem. Our IT Guru's at work turned off script debugging and I called then Blo*** cheats. This does not get rid of the problem, it just stops teleing you that it exists.

Another post in this forum has pointed me to the answer. There is a great page: "How to run the Microsoft Internet Explorer Repair Tool" at the following address:

By following the instructions on the page for XP, I now have error free browsing where previously I had the same as you did. I found that the first fix did not clear the problem but the second one did.

I don't have any problems any more. Best of luck.

Oops, I forgot to add.

Once you have applied the fix above, you will need to return to Windows update to make sure you have all the latest patches.
