Wow. That does not sound good.

At a guess, you've got some spyware or adware in your computer taking over the browser, possibly through a homepage takeover.

So try this:
Click Start: Run (if you're in XP)
In the box that pops up, type this:
iexplore http://www.mozilla.com/firefox

Download Firefox.
Close Internet Explorer
Install Firefox
Launch Firefox

Go to Malwarebytes.org and download their Anti-Malware (It's free)

Go to http://www.safer-networking.org, download, find Spybot Search & Destroy, download it (it's also free).

Quit Firefox.

Install both new pieces of software.
Run both.
Update both
Then select Quick scan for Malwarebytes, and Fix Problems in Spybot.

Let it run a while -- it'll probably take about an hour.

Fix everything it tells you to do.

Restart your computer.

Run the scans *again*.

If you're clean now, great.

Launch Firefox, go to Google and search on "Download Internet Explorer" -- the first link FROM MICROSOFT should be the one you want. Microsoft will ask you to install some verification thingy; that's fine.

Internet Explorer's installer is a relatively small file, but it may download quite a bit more stuff. Do it.

Please write back if this doesn't work for you.

Do yourself a favour when you have gotten Explorer to run again,,,download firefox.
jaranya8 is correct,,you may need to kill a virus first.
If you cant kill the virus,,,then try downloading Firefox,,and failing that:
If you have a friend who is proficient with computers,,get him to remove your hard drive and put it into his computer as a slave,,then he can scan and kill the virus for you,,,then you just put the hard drive back into your machine.

What is scrip running


Anonymous, we'll need a whole lot more information in order to help you. "Scrip" means "money", so I'm guessing you mean "script", which is a series of commands. The script might be in your browser, in your word processor, or in some other program, or it might be directly in Windows. We can't tell from your description. What is the actual message you're seeing, and when do you see it?

Running script error


Method 1: Disable script debugging loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); If the only sign of a problem is the error message, and Web sites are working, you can probably ignore the error. Also, if the problem only happens on one or two Web pages, it might be a problem with those pages. If you decide to ignore the errors, you can disable script debugging.

Note If this problem occurs on more than one or two sites, do not disable script debugging. Go to method 2 now.

To turn off the Scripting Debugger in Internet Explorer 6, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. On the Advanced tab, click to select the Disable script debugging check box. and then click OK .
To turn off notification about every script error in Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. On the Advanced tab, click to clear the Display a notification about every script error check box, and then click OK.
Method 2: Test a Web page from another user account, another browser, and another computer loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); Use another user account, another browser, or another computer to view the Web pages that triggered a script error to determine whether the problem persists. If the script error persists, there may be a problem with the way the Web page is written. You can probably ignore the error and disable script debugging as described in method 1.

If the script error does not occur when you view the Web page from another user account, browser, or computer, the problem may be caused by files or by settings on your computer. Go to method 3 to continue to troubleshoot. Method 3: Verify that Active Scripting, ActiveX, and Java are not being blocked by Internet Explorer loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); Active scripting, ActiveX, and Java are all involved in shaping the way information displays on a Web page. If these are blocked on your computer, it may disrupt the display of the Web page. Reset the Internet Explorer security settings to make sure these are not blocked. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Security tab.
  4. Click Default Level.
  5. Click OK.
Note ActiveX controls and Java programs are turned off at the High security level in Internet Explorer.

Try to open a Web page where you previously received a scripting error. If you do not receive the error, the issue is resolved. If the issue persists, go to Method 4. Method 4: Remove all the temporary Internet-related files loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); Every time that you open a browser to view a Web page, your computer stores a local copy of that Web page in a temporary file. If the size of the temporary Internet files folder becomes too large, some display problems may occur when you open Web pages. Periodically clearing the folder might help resolve the issue.

To remove all the temporary Internet-related files from your computer when you use Internet Explorer 6, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the General tab.
  4. Under Temporary Internet files, click Settings.
  5. Click Delete Files, and then click OK.
  6. Click Delete Cookies, and then click OK.
  7. Under History, click Clear History, and then click Yes.
  8. Click OK.
To remove all the temporary Internet-related files from your computer when you use Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the General tab.
  4. Under Browsing History, click Delete, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  5. In the Delete Browsing History dialog box, under Temporary Internet Files, click Delete Files, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  6. Under Cookies, click Delete Cookies, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  7. Under History, click Delete History, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  8. Click Close, and then click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.
Try to open a Web page where you previously received a scripting error. If you do not receive the error, the issue is resolved. If the issue persists, go to method 5. Method 5: Install the latest service pack and software updates for Internet Explorer 6 or Internet Explorer 7 loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); If you do not have the latest service pack or software upgrades for Internet Explorer 6 or 7, download and install them. They may contain updates that can help resolve the issue.

Everytime i open iternet windows script host appear with the following data: Line 24, Character 1, Error permission denied, Code: 800A0046, Source:Microsoft VBScript runtime error. Please help me to solve...


It is a Windows Internet Explorer bug that could be fixed by upgrading your IE to version 8. Also, check your "home page"found at Tool => Internet Options and set it to some legitimate website. The error message simply means that the page you are viewing has scripts that return an error.
