    Howdy Pardners,

    Using a reasonably new Acer with Windows 7 (IE8), I've recently started to get Script Error messages popping up while I'm on the net;

    An error has occurred in the script on this page
    Line: 1
    Char: 7
    Error: Invalid Character
    URL: http://adyieldmanager.com/pixel?id=652276&t=2

    I must admit I'm not sure if every one I get is the same as that.

    I've tried checking and unchecking the 'disable script debugging' and that hasn't worked and I've also now started to get Webpage Error messages popping up as well with such gems as 'Object expected' and 'Exception thrown and not caught' :confused:

    I've tried unchecking 'Display a notification about every script error' but that hasn't worked either.
    I don't want to turn something off if there really is a problem with the script, but the only problem I can see are the constant error messages

    Can you please use your wisdom to outwit this wascally wabbit?

    Nellie.

    You can download and install the free SpywareBlaster. It will keep adyieldmanager.com and A LOT of other tracking cookies away. You'll even enjoy a relatively ad free Internet... You'll even forget you have the program. It doesn't run in the background.

    Or, open Internet Explorer. Click Tools > Internet Options > Privacy > Sites.

    In the "Address of website" box, type yieldmanager.com and click Block.

    You can also do this for the Restrited sites:

    Select the Security tab. Choose Restricted sites > Sites > type *.yieldmanager.com and click Add.

    SpywareBlaster will basically do the same thing.

    Thanks for the quick response.:)

    I've installed SpywareBlaster, before I mark as solved I'll see if the problem re-occurs.

    Can you please tell me what state my Disable script debugging and Display a notification about every script error should be, in a perfect world? Should I check them again or doesn't it matter?

    Nellie.

    Proper settings:

    Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer) (checked)

    Disable script debugging (Other) (checked)

    Display a notification about every script error (unchecked)
