    Have found a tweak to stop script error reporting in IE6 (found on PC Mag website) . I understand the error reporting message is responsible for scripting error messages - which I am getting constantly. My problem is that I do not know how to implement the tweak. Here it is:

    HKCU/Software/Microsoft/InternetExplorer/Main
    IE WatsonEnabled String 0

    That tweak is a registry string.

    It involves editing the registry (Start - Regedit).

    If you make an error in the registry, your system is toast basically. If you need to ask about the string, then it suggests that you have not edited the registry before?

    Accordingly I would not recommend it unless your system is fully backed up. All data can be lost.

    Proceed at your own risk however. Its not a difficult task, the string you give is the folder/subfolder location of the string, andf the existing (1) should be modified to a (0) by the look of it.

    Personally I suggest that you would be better fixing the system rather than hiding the error messages.

    Try this (no registry editing required):
    Open IE,from Tools/Internet Options select the Advanced tab and scroll down to "Display a notification about every script error" and uncheck it.

    Well spotted rude.

    I "assumed" it was the MS error reporting. But looking again, you are right I think.
