Which browser are you using? There are Options to turn off JavaScript Error reporting.

In IE 7, click on Tools, select Internet Options. Click on Advanced tab and scroll to Browsing. Make sure these two boxes are checked:

Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer)
Disable script debugging (Other)

Then make sure this box is unchecked:

Display a notification about every script error

Click OK button. Normally these changes should take effect without closing/restarting IE. Restart IE anyway.

the settings were already like that.
If i go onto eg. youtube.com it says that javascript is turned of and when i go onto a webpage that uses javascript like google the error message appears in the bottom left corner.
its acting as if i uninstalled the java-plug-in but i didnt , and when i check it , it says that it is enabled.?

I reinstalled some programs from my "System and driver cd" like power DVD and adobe , i dont know if that has done anything

I also removed Internet Games from Start>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs>Add/Remove Windows Components>Accessories>Games>Internet Games but its still there.

OK. There appears to be some confusion about JavaScript and Java. These two are not the same. If you are having problems with Java, please go to Java.com and download/install the latest version of Java (JRE 6.0).

It may be a problem with IE 7.0, but to check, would you download and use Firefox on the same web pages and see if you have the same problem? Can you list any errors codes you're getting?

Then try resetting the Defaults under the Security and Advanced tabs in IE 7.0. If that doesn't work, try uninstalling/reinstalling IE 7.0. Better to use Firefox, but IE will be needed for those Micro$oft pages for scans, Windows Live Care, etc..
