Try this routine


What does the message Runtime Error-Debug mean? For the last couple of months I have been getting this message almost everytime I check my e-mail. A box comes up with the words "Microsoft Development Environment". Sometimes my computer freezes up and I have to shut it down-the end task won't even work. I have tried a lot of different solutions which aren't working. It's alright to laugh at this question-my sons already are. I know whatever is wrong is ultimately my fault! Anyway can you please give me a couple of suggestions. Thank you.

While browsing in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5, you may experience periodic runtime errors that prompt you to click Debug to correct When you click Refresh, the current page does not refresh This occurs more often when you click to browse away from the page before the current page finishes loading


This behavior can occur when the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) code behind the page contains errors, or when there is a problem with controls on the page Additionally, a running Internet Explorer thread could cause the problem


To work around this problem, do one or more of the following:

1 Perform a full, forced refresh of the Web page by pressing CTRL F5.

2 Alter the Internet Explorer security settings.For additional information about altering Internet Explorer security settings, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 174360 How to Use Security Zones in Internet Explorer

3 Restart the computer.

4 Remove any ActiveX controls, which will force them to reinstall the next time they are needed.
