When trying to print in IE or Outloof Express (version 5.50) I now receive the following message:

An error occurred in the script on this page

Line 1015
Character 1
Unspecified Error
Code 0
URL: res://c:\windows\system\shdoclc.dll/preview.dlg

And I can't get a print, whether I click on yes or no to "Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

Can anyone tell me how to resolve this - I have not changed any settings. I use Windows ME

Thanks
Daff

Thanks Maj, but that's for version 6 and mine is 5.5. (I don't have Surfairy installed). I've checked the MS tech database, but it doesn't seem to have anything else to help.
(There is another bug noted for my version, but it'a a different error message.)

So any other offers please?

Have a look at this click here;EN-US;q303486

click here;EN-US;q303486 I'll try again

search for Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 303486

Phew. Is that the article you refer to in your post above?

If that doesn't help, maybe try updating IE?

Well I must be having a bad day. On the MS website, I keep getting "Error on Page" when I enter anything in the MS Search(kb) box.

Plus, when I go to the "Searching the Knowledge Base" page, it gives me the drop down boxes, but they are blank and I can't type anything in

So I haven't been able to see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 303486

Is it me?

As for updating to v6, I'm worried about a cock-up due to lack of information. Last time I upgraded a browser, I didn't get the readme file till after the installation, when the instruction was to uninstall the original first!

Ho hum.

Did you try the second part of the possible solution I posted, Daffodil?

1.Start Internet Explorer.

2.On the Tools menu, clickInternet Options.

3.Click the Advanced tab.

4.Click to clear the Enable third-party browser extensions (requires restart) check box.

5.Click Apply, and then click OK.

No, I don't have that option on my version, or anything similar.
