I have set scripts to "Prompt" on my Windows 98 SE system., per a security alert. Now I can't view any web pages without being prompted numerous times. How can I surf the web and still be secure?

Personally I'd suggest you just reenable scripting, install a good up-to-date anti virus program, be sure you keep the Windows install updated with the most recent security patches by visiting the <a href=http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com>Windows Update Site</a> regularly and use common sense when browsing.

Disable "Install on Demand" in IE. Start>Settings>ControlPanel>InternetOptions>Advanced. Uncheck "Enable Install on Demand" and click on Apply.

And then install a firewall. The free version of <a href=http://www.zonealarm.com> ZoneAlarm</a> is a good choice.

I like Norton Internet Security. It allows you to set ActiveX and Java to prompt, but it also allows you to make exceptions for any specific site you desire.
This means you can choose to allways block scripts from certain sites, but to always allow them from trusted sites of your choice, which makes surfing the net a much more pleasurable experience.

I have McAfee Clinic, which I update daily and Zone Alarm Pro installed.

My mind's a blank though as to how I reenable scripting. I know it's simple , but just forgot.
