    Script errors reported when running IE 11 under Windows 10

    I recently upgraded my system from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I do not like The Edge very much, so I made IE 11 my default browser. Now, whenever I move to a new page, a small window opens reporting a script error and offering me the alternatives of Yes (continue) or No (abort move to page). This process occurs exactly 10 times when moving to a new page, or 6 times when moving back to the previous page. After that, I can scroll around the page as one normally does.

    I attach a screen shot of the first error (the file with all of the shots is too large). The other messages are:

    'BuildAdSlot' is undefined.
    Object doesn't support property or method 'r'. 2 times
    'buildTTextAd' is undefined. 2 times
    'adSlot is undefined. 3 times
    script error (reportedly in http/connect.facebook.net/en.all js)

    The process works, provided that I am prepared to sit there and press the Yes button a hundred times! Can any of you very experienced people out there help retrieve my irritation ??

    Script errors are a problem with the website.

    Set your configurations as in the red outline in the screenshot...

    Many thanks for your prompt reply, jwoods. I brought up the Advanced page in Internet Options, ticked the two options to turn off script debugging, then restarted. After the restart, I went back to the Advanced page and checked that the boxes were still ticked, which shows that the changes had been accepted. Curiously, I noted that another box, to send a notification every time a script error was noted was NOT checked, which makes me wonder why I was getting the messages in the first place! Sadly, your advice was ineffective, as the messages still appear. I posted my problem under Windows 10, because IE11 works perfectly under Windows 7, my previous operating system. I quite like the Windows 10 conceptually, but when push comes to shove, I badly need a functioning PC and I am really nervous about possible consequences of going back to Windows7 (or 8). Perhaps I should take this matter to a Microsoft forum.

    You may have to reset IE to its default settings.

    If resetting IE11 doesn't help you could try Mozilla Firefox: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

    This solution was going to be my next port of call. The only reason I use IE is that I have it on my computer since it first came out, and my fingers know where to go without consulting me! However, because I do a bit of website development and maintenance, I have copies of Firefox, Chrome, something called Chromodo, which seems to be a spin-off from Chrome and of course, now The Edge. I have tried Firefox (my second favourite) and it works perfectly (at least for Windows Secrets). So thank you, Coochin for a suggestion which might just have been meant to be a bit tongue-in-cheek, but happens to be right on the button!

    Sounds like you had some add-in running in IE. Did you try running IE with add-ins disabled?

    I have disabled all of the ad-ons except those for Google bar and Epson Easy Photoprint (my printer is an Epson printer-cum-scanner and I search a lot on the Internet - as do we all!). Nothing made any difference. There is a lot of chat in various sites about the relationship between IE11 and Windows 10. One thing pointed out is that IE11 is downloaded with Windows 10, so the IE11 I am playing with may not be the version I was playing with on Windows 7. I will investigate and report.

    I returned my copy of IE 11 to its default settings and lo and behold - those pesky notifications disappeared. As time permits (and if I can remember what my setting changes were!), I will reintroduce the changes one at a time to try and find out which one caused the problem in the first place. If I get any meaningful results, I will report them. Meanwhile, many thanks to all the clever people who responded to my inquiry.
