Thanks Rollin'

I have a question. I'm on Win2000 and I tried to use NOSCRIPT that I used on Win98, but it dosen't appear to work. Is there a workaround, or another program?

Thanks

I agree! Gigger is a real mean script. If people even let their guards down for a few moments its over.

I don't even have Windows Scripting Host on my PC.
Plus one good reason to not use Outlook is it get picked on for most things.

I like my Netscape.:)

You know what?
The FBI has Strongly Recommended that

I ran the "UnPlug n' Pray" utility and came up ok because it not on my PC.
Heard is on all Windows XP's and you have to install it on the others Windows OS's but I still ran it to find out if I am ok.

eddie5659,

Only guess here. But on my old PC with 95a I never had the Windows Scripting Host but after I installed I.E. 5 that I did not want but need for other image programs to work I had the Windows Scripting Host and had to use the NOSCRIPT to disable it.

On my new PC with 98SE it was never installed.
But I do have I.E. 5. So I went looking in add/remove to see what was there and looked in the windows setup. It was there under Accessories.
But not installed.
So look there and if you don't see it then look at all the places in the windows setup tab.

I read the posts, then went to Add/Remove programs > Windows Setup, & found that "Windows Scripting Host" was activated on my computer, and turned it off.
Will this be ok as far as killing this program?

Hey Eddie,
I'm running W2Kpro and can't find the windows scripting host either. Browser version is 6.0 and checked under it's options and couldn't find a scripting host as well.

Is this normal?

Cheers,

Scully

Hiya

Found Script debugging program, but I don't think that's it. I might have a look at Rollin's link.

Hello. I'm running win98SE and have outlook express installed in my computer. I'm using MSN as my internet service. I use MSN and yahoo for my email.
Do I even need Outlook express as i never use it, do not send or receive email w/ it.
Will affect the operation of my computer if I uninstalled Outlook Express?
Thanks.

You may want to repost your question in a new thread under
