Script Error pop-up may be an infection?

Recommended Posts

Today, after I ran CCleaner for the first time in months (with an older version because I didn't feel like updating it), I got this really strange Script Error pop up. It's still here, I haven't closed it.

I don't know what it means, but after Googling a bit, the only thread I found said that it was an infection and now I'm kinda spooked.

Any idea? Malwarebytes doesn't find anything. The forum I saw told the other guy to run AdwCleaner, so I did, and that also apparently found nothing.

 

Attached below is a screenshot of the script error pop-up. Please help!

Just posting an update. I hit "no" on the dialogue box and it went away, although I still want to know if I'm infected and/or what this thing was and what my next steps should be.

Hello, Welcome to Malwarebytes.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

This may be caused by a setting in Internet Explorer.

Script error messages are displayed by Internet Explorer when there is a problem with the JavaScript or VBScript code on the website you are viewing. Occasionally a script error can be caused by an error in downloading a webpage, but more often it is an error in the webpage itself.

Perform the steps to disable script debugging and then check if it helps.

a: Open Internet Explorer.

b: Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

😄 Click the Advanced tab, select the Disable script debugging Internet Explorer) and Disable script debugging (Other) check boxes.

d: Clear the Display a notification about every script error check box, and then click OK.
==

Let me know if the problem is solved.

Hi, thanks for the response. I tried to do what you said, but as soon as I opened up Internet Options and went to the Advanced Tab, everything you wanted me to do was already done, like so.

I see. That's a relief, thank you! I should point out that I was using Firefox only. I hardly ever use Chrome and I never use Internet Explorer or MIcrosoft Edge. Would this error message still pop up if I was using Firefox?

Normally, as long as the website does not have invalid code then often general cleaning of the computer and browser will often help.

Did you still need help or should we go ahead and complete your topic and close it?

Thanks

Ron
