Internet Explorer appears broken after C# web development

Is there a way that I can repair MS Internet Explorer? I seem to have
broken it somewhere. I have been developing a .NET app. Three days ago I
saw a message box in a web site that I visit saying "Syntax error; Line 14".
I cleared that (hit button not to debug) and then the another message box
popped up on a mouse over event that said a "Runtime error has occurred.
Line 85: Object expected." I looked at the source and line 85 contained a
OnMouseOver(...) script function.

I questioned the web owner and apparently I was the only one reporting a
problem. I then tried opening the page from my laptop machine (this had not
been involved with the .NET development) and sure enough the page opened
correctly. I then tried opening the page from the Mozilla browser on my
desktop machine - again no problems.

From this I deduce that I have in someway broken my version MS IE. I have
been developing a C# web page app using Visual Studio .NET 2003 and SQL
Server.

The IE version that I have is 6.0.2900. Running on an XP, SP2 machine.

The same symptoms exhibit themselves through a reboot.

IE doesn't appear in the list of programs in Control Panel "Add or Remove
Programs" that would give me an opportunity for repair.

Is there a way to repair IE?

Instead of repairing IE, clear its cache and its history. You may also want
to take a look at the parameters for the Internet Temporary Files in the IE
options.

I deleted Cookies and Files under Internet Options...

Also following Settings... under Internet Options... I Viewed Files... and
deleted all files shown.

Under Viewed Objects... there are about 20 files under C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded
Program Files. I'm not sure if I should delete all these.

Then "Cleared History."

On returning to the problem web page, there was still an error but the
message box differed from the one seen originally. This one now says:

Problems with this Web page might prevent it from being displayed properly
of functioning properly. In the future you can display this message by
double clicking the warning icon displayed in the status bar.

Under this are the details:

Line: 15
Char: 1
Error: Syntax error
Code: 0
URL: htttp://www.bridgeplace.com

This message box has Previous and Next buttons that can cycle through
errors. When the mouse over error occurs, the line is 83 and the error is
"Object Expected."

Check: Tools > Internet Options > Disable script debugging
Uncheck: Tools > Internet Options > Show a message about every script error

Your other browsers are probably not alerting you of the scripting error.

..NET does not have anything to do with this, unless you have manually changed these settings. In VS.NET, i believe there is a
shortcut link in the project property pages that takes you to the IE settings tab. You may have adjusted it there without realizing
it would affect your IE settings on a global level.

Dave,

Turning off the message made the message box go away. You solved the
problem. It must be that the 400 users who visit the site are not set up for
debugging scripts. I was, because of the .NET development!

Try http://www.thebridgeplace.com/ and hover over the "Results" button.

Thanks for the feedback.
