  1. hey guys! can anyone help?

    the problem is that on several pc's at work runing windows xp sp2 and IE 6
    i get an error message when trying to browse through certain web pages.

    For example when i go to www.hotmail.com and i click on sign up i get an "error on page" alert by the botton left hand corner of IE. And this also happens if i click on any of the links at the top of the page (home,shopping,etc) But if try to sign in it lets me through and i could get into my email account. So I'm thinking is a java issue but i don't know what to do.

    I double click on it to view the error message and it states:

    Line:1
    Char:1
    error: access denied
    code: 0

    URL: http://hm.msn.com/c/hotmail/n/1033/singup.html?cbpage=login&lc=1033&x=5.0.7495.0

    now these computers are scheduled to get updates automatically at a specific time just as any other. and i installed the lates updates for Java.

    Now i have tried numerous troubleshooting steps but none of them seem to help.
    I disabled java, debugging script etc.
    can anyone help with this problem, it would be greatly apreciated.
    Thanks in advanced./

    This is my normal answer to this question -

    Tools menu/Internet Options/Advanced/

    Select the Disable script debugging check box.

    Clear the Display a notification about every script error check box.

    Click OK.


    Upgrade to IE7 or use Firefox or Opera for normal browsing

    what plug-ins and themes are you using? unload all of them and try a basic
    browser without all the bells and whistles.

    frequently this is a conflict between the webpage code and a plugin
