I am using IE and Mozilla Firefox as browsers but it appears that both are suffering some form of corruption.
document.write(' \/SCR' + 'IPT>');
Sometimes, especially on opening web pages, the whole page is nearly full with this type of text, and sometimes I find that response boxes on web pages don'function.
OS is XP Home and one of the first things I tried was system restore back to the date when I first installed Java. This was when I was only using IE but it did not cure the problem which shows on both IE and Mozilla Firefox.
