It is most likely because you don't have scripts enabled. Try this first.

To enable scripting:

1. Click the "Tools" menu on your Internet Explorer toolbar and select "Internet Options."
2. Click the "Security" tab.
3. Click the Internet (globe) icon and click the "Custom Level" button.
4. Scroll down to "Scripting."
5. Enable the following:
* Active scripting
* Allow paste operations via script
* Scripting of Java applets are all enabled
6. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.

If that doesn't work try this:

Why do I receive an error when running Yahoo! Messenger?

You might have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory. To fix the problem, you must manually delete the "Messenger" directory on your C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

To delete the directory:

1. Close the Yahoo! Messenger application if you currently have it running. Make sure all instances of Internet Explorer are closed.
2. Go to your desktop and double-click "My Computer."
3. Click the "C:" drive.
4. Go to:
* C:\Program Files\Yahoo!
5. Highlight the Yahoo! Messenger folder and press the Delete key on your keyboard. (All archives will be deleted if they are not copied. Please see below.)

To install:

1. Close all running applications except for your Internet browser.
2. Visit the Yahoo! Messenger home page.
3. Click the "Download Now" button.

To copy your complete Message Archive:

1. Close Yahoo! Messenger (if it is currently running).
2. Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."
3. Select the "C:" drive.
4. Go to:
* C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles
5. Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete Message Archive. Copy it to the same location on another computer if you wish to view it elsewhere.

Note: If you copy this folder to another computer, your complete Message Archive will be copied, overriding the Message Archive on the computer to which you are copying.

How do I go about downloading java script?


Java script is native to all browsers. You may have it disabled. You will have to go into your browsers settings and enable java script within your browser. If you have any plugins such as "No Script" then you will need to disable them or uninstall them for Java script to work properly again.
If you meant to ask how to download Java (it is different than java script) then you would visit http://www.java.com and download the software and install.
Seeing as you posted this as a Facebook problem I would be satisfied to say that your problem is java script is disabled in your browser settings.

I only get the slow script error on one specific website...Is it my problem or the websites problem.


Hello,
This is a protection method used to prevent badly coded scripts or overly large scripts from tying up your MAC. If its just the one website that this happens on, I wouldn't worry about it. Safari is a bit more picky with slow scripts then other browsers. Try downloading firefox internet browser and load the problem webpage on that.

Script problem in Explorer 8


What should you do about Internet Explorer script errors?

In most cases, you can ignore them. 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.

To be sure it isn't an error in downloading, click the Refresh button, or press F5.

getcontent.aspx?assetid=6d65df30-1154-45a1-9855-1232c6b27475&documentset=en-us&prod=win700&market=usInternet Explorer refresh button

If the error persists, and you are not a developer testing a website, you should click No to ignore the error.


To avoid script errors in the future, you can turn off script debugging and notifications in Internet Explorer. Script error debugging and notifications are turned off by default. If they have been turned on, follow these steps to turn them off again.


  1. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

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

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

I cant see my conversation message with my chatmate.but my chatmate see my messages


Dear Sir,

plz folow this step to solve your problem,


One of you has a scripting problem.
When you type a message and 'send' it, you should be able to read it in the upper conversation window. Likewise when you receive a message, it should be visible in the Conversation window.
If this is the case the fault lies with your contact's computer.

Email this to them

Most likely the demo script in the \script directory of your TT is named "salesdemo.script". A script by this name is run automatically after a certain time. Just rename it to "demo.script". Problem solved.
