If I don't say "No" do not run script, I get a message that says it will slow my pc down if I keep running the script.  What is "script".

A script is like a set of codes that are supposed to do something. Now, there are times when browsers do not get the right translation or have corrupt versions of that script. In such cases, errors like what you encountered can come up.

You can try resetting Internet Explorer, which is MSN's browser backbone.

It will be a good idea to restart the computer before this.
1. Click on Start
2. Click Run
3. Type inetcpl.cpl
4. Click Ok
5. Go to Advanced tab
6. Click Reset and confirm it.

Hi, Natasha --

I was getting that "script error message", too, on some websites until I did the "2nd Tuesday" Windows updates on March 13th.  I don't know if that had anything to do with it, if something in the updates corrected the problem, but I haven't gotten that error message since.

But I was wondering about the instructions above that you gave to the previous poster -- was does resetting Internet Explorer do?  What is the procedure for?

Thank you for your help.

You're right, something in the update may have fixed an issue with the browser. As for resetting the Internet Explorer, it's like starting from  a fresh copy of the browser then. MSN uses Internet Explorer as its backbone in browsing.

Thank you for your reply.  I'll copy and keep those resetting instructions in case I ever need them in the future.
