This is hard to explain, but using the current profile of IE 7 (it started happening in IE6) one cannot post on a particular forum using the default profile. Switching to Firefox or even another profile it's ok. I checked the info on the webpage but it actually uses java. The problem only happens when one wants to "post" their message and occasionally I have black blocks on the website.

I ran malware scans and even reinstalled windows scripting 5x and this has not helped. I did do a registry cleanup recently. I installed IE7 thinking some of the files would get repaired but they didn't really. I also had different but similar problems with the other profiles but I deleted the temp and temporary internet folders and that fixed that issue but in my default profile I did the same but no help. My restore points are all recent so I cant use Restore.

Suggestions to fix this?

Thanks

Have you updated your version of Java?

yes. i had to uninstall it just to be sure it wasnt the problem. i found an old restore point and that profile is fixed but not the other one. the site is dslreports.com. when clicking on any of the menu items like tools or forums, nothing happens. i dont think that is not a java site. i am now using ie 6

dsl reports is a java empowered site. some fire walls and norton cause problems in either viewing or posting in the tools section. i see where you installed java just be sure its version 8. microsofts virtual machine will not run the tools. you might want to try deleting temp files and cookies right before testing.also at times theres just to many people using certain tools

Update: I am receiving script errors on all profiles but one. The script errors is even shown on MSN.com. I created a new identity and the same happens. Now, it's even worse. Clicking even on Google search results results in nothing happening.

There is absolutely no issue with Firefox. In addition, I tried to reinstall IE6 SP1 using ie6setup /q but part way through the installation, my machine went and started to shut down and save my settings.

I also cleared cookies and so on. I recall many moons ago I had a similar problem with IE6 when migrating over from IE5 and the Microsoft MVP walked me through how to delete everything that may be script related as I was getting script errors on every site. I dont remember since that was a long long time ago.

Thanks, I cleared it, I still get the yellow/black exclamation mark on the corner right of the screen on every site. I compare it with the working profile and it doesnt have the error on any of the sites including DSL reports. Just for comparison purposes, it makes no difference what tab I click on, Tools, Forums, Maps, whatever. Many [other] sites do now do not function when clicking.

I also ran SFC and reinstalled XP SP2, no help whatsoever. Any new profile I create is now buggy with the same script errors. For various reasons we cannot use Firefox soley as many sites that we have to go to require IE 6 or higher.

go to your tool drop down and internet options tab. lets have a look at the browsing history section. click on the settings tab and then open the view objects. anything thats listed there right click on it an open the properties tab. perhaps one of these active x's are damaged which should show up upon clicking properties. an if you dont reconize who they belong to. sun micro systems, microsoft etc. delete them.

Thanks, I had already deleted the all the active x's. I found the solution in microsoft newsgroups. YOu may find this handy for people who a similar problem:

1. You might want to refresh your scripting engine:
http://www.microsoft...;displaylang=en

2. Sometimes there's a corrupt file in the cache and one must go to Tools |
Internet Options and click Delete Files.

2a. Start | Run | Regsvr32 vbscript.dll

2b. Start | Run | Regsvr32 jscript.dll

3. Re-register all DLLs listed in http://support.micro...om/?kbid=281679

5a. IE Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>Browsing>Enable third-party browser
extensions (uncheck & reboot).

5b. Find the hijacker that caused 5a to be checked (or if none were checked,
check for hijackware anyway):
