How to Stop Internet Script Error Pop Up

Updated March 23, 2017

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.

Open IE, select “Tools” and ten choose “Internet Options.” The Internet Options dialogue box will open.

Click on the “Advanced” tab, scroll to the “Browsing” section and then select the “Disable Script Debugging” box. Clear the “Display a notification about every script error” box under the same section if it has been selected.

Click “Apply” and then choose “OK” to modify your IE settings. You will receive no more IE script error notifications.
