If you use Internet Explorer as your Web browser, chances are you have experienced, or will experience, popup script errors. Typically, a dialogue box may appear stating “A Runtime Error has occurred. Do you wish to Debug?” or “Internet Explorer Script Error. An error has occurred in the script on line 1. Do you wish to continue running scripts on this page?” These errors can be distracting and interfere with your Web browsing experience. If you would like to stop receiving these error messages, you must modify your IE settings.
