That message box does not sound too familiar to me; unless you have a utility named int.expl.a you trust, do not accept it.

In order to get rid of it, you would run an antivirus, such as AVG32 Antivirus Free Edition (which costs nothing, though it takes time to go through and beat up all the software you and your OS have let through your defense lines so far.) Similarly, you might try Moon Secure Antivirus, which is Free Software in another sense as well.

You might wish to install a more secure browser to search from in the meantime, for example the one available from http://www.Opera.com/

Why say Yes ,,, well if you want to take a chance on crashing your computer, say Yes.

Why say No ... if you are like me, you do not want any junk on your computer except that which is absolutely neccessary for some product you want to install, and even then do a backup first so if it turns out the new product is not as good as it was cracked up to be, we can uninstall both it and whatever plug-ins it required.

Avoid going to the sites that ask the question.

Get anti-adware as part of your computer security.

I have anti-adware at home, but they do not have it where I work. I visit some of the same sites from both places. I constantly see adware when I am at work, that I never see when I am at home.

Hi there,

Cause:

This issue occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • The Project Guide is enabled.
  • Security settings for the Local Machine zone are configured to prevent ActiveX content from running.
Note The security settings for the Local Machine zone control the browsing of local content in Windows Internet Explorer. The Project Guide is an Internet Explorer page that displays in Project.

Resolution:

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. Please Click the link below to know how to back up.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756/

To resolve this issue, use one of the following methods.

Method 1 loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution');
  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  2. Expand the following registry subkey: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0
  3. In the right pane, right-click 1200, and then click Modify.
  4. In the Value data box, type either 1 or 0 to overwrite the existing value of 3. Then, click OK.

    Note If you type 1 in the Value data box, you will receive the following prompt when you start Microsoft Project: Do you want to allow software such as ActiveX controls and plug-ins to run?Additionally, you will receive this prompt at other times when you use Microsoft Project. If you do not want to receive this prompt, type 0 in the Value data box.

    The values 0, 1, and 3 are associated with the following behavior:
    • 0 = Enabled, or the action is permitted
    • 1 = Prompt
    • 3 = Disabled, or the action is not permitted
  5. Quit Registry Editor.
If this issue still occurs after you perform this procedure, your administrator may have set a policy that prevents ActiveX content from running in the Local Machine zone. We recommend that you contact your administrator to configure the settings for the Local Machine zone. For more information about the Microsoft Internet Explorer security settings that cause this error message, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 833633 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/833633/ ) How to strengthen the security settings for the Local Machine zone in Internet Explorer
Method 2 loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Turn off the Project Guide. To do this, perform one of the following actions, depending on your version of Project:
  • Project 2007
    On the View menu, click Turn Off Project Guide.
  • Project 2002 and 2003
    On the Tools menu, click Options, click the Interface tab, and then click to clear the Display Project Guide check box. Then, click OK.

Windows int. explorer keeps closing saying java script error


Hi,

This article offers five methods that you can try to resolve the issue, and also presents some advanced troubleshooting tips that you can try. Try each method in the order presented until you resolve the issue. If one method does not work, try the next.

This article is intended for a beginning to intermediate computer user. You may find it easier to follow the steps if you print this article first.
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.

To install Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=1e1550cb-5e5d-48f5-b02b-20b602228de6&displaylang=en (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=1e1550cb-5e5d-48f5-b02b-20b602228de6&displaylang=en) Note Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 is recommended for systems that are running versions of Windows earlier than Windows XP.

To install the most current software updates for Internet Explorer 6 or for Internet Explorer 7, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

Corrupted Desktop?


No, this is a hardware setting. When you checked your display monitor for manual settings did you see any? There would be display width, height, pincushion, trapezoid, etc. Which monitor do you have? Also you can still have Internet Explorer installed with any other browser as your default. When you go to Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Windows Features select Internet Explorer to reinstall that. Firefox does not support ActiveX scripting which is necessary to run many Microsoft diagnostic programs so never completely uninstall IE. You may also just download IE7 which is a tabbed browser like FireFox. Choosing FireFox allows better security but that is only because it does not use ActiveX.

Explorer problem


Hi

I suggest to restore the settings of your internet explorer to defaults. There could be bugs during your windows update.

1. Open internet explorer, go to tool --> Internet Options ---> Advanced tab ---> Reset.

Reset all the settings then restart your computer. In case you cannot open internet explorer because it will just give you a white blank page. try the following steps below.

1.1a Click Start -- type msconfig on start search box (for vista only). Click Run (for xp only). a pop up box window will show up (System utility configuration). Look for the tab Services.

Under services tab, put a check on the box that says "Hide all microsoft services" at the very bottom screen. Click apply then close. Restart the computer.

After restarting the computer follow step 1.

Keep me posted

Regards
