Lenovo Computer running Windows 8.1.  Received a Message that I had a Trojan Virus and to call an 800 number.  Called and decided that I thought they were the one who gave me the virus.  Called Lenovo Premium Support and was advised that I could purchase Premium Support and they could resolve my problem. Leading up to this problem I had been getting numerous "Script Error" pop ups.  I have spent the last week talking to Lenovo Premium Support.  They have done two Computer Refreshes and one Computer Restart.  I got another "Script Error" pop-up this evening.  These pop-ups came at random, I see no pattern to them.  Any ideas? 

 

Thanks

If a web page you are visiting has an error in some of its scripting code, you will see a script error. Some broswers allow you to disable showing you scripting errors.

I understand this will prevent the "Script Error" pop-ups.  Are script errors still running and is this something I should be concerned about? 

 

Thanks!

The only way to resolve the problem would be to contact whomever wrote the script containing the error in the web page that you are viewing and have them correct the problem. In other words, the script's author/programmer/programming_team made some kind of a mistake in their script code which is popping up the "error" in your web browser. Since you can't normally do anything about it, most people simply set their browser to ignore that kine of error.

It shouldn't hurt your computer any more than say a misspelled word might. ;)
