    I turn on my computer and the desktop comes on .... the hourglass is running and finally a white screen covers the entire desktop ... then an "Internet Explorer Script Error" box comes up .... it asks if you want to continue running scripts on this page .. I have tried saying yes and then no ... the reult is the same ... I still can't get into my offline programs or anywhere else.

    Did you, by any chance, set a Web page as your desktop background?

    Right-click an empty space on your desktop.

    Click Properties.

    Select the Desktop tab.

    Click on Customize Desktop...

    Select the Web tab.

    Uncheck My Current Home Page or any other website.
