|Do you have any idea when you first started having this problem ?|
Was it after you had installed something, or had removed something ?
Was it after you had used an anti-malware program to un-install something ?
Spybot and AdAware are well known to have sometimes removed the WRONG things.
NOTE that sometimes the resident module(s) of anti-malware programs - a part that runs all the time scanning for suspicious activity - will interfere with the proper installation of third party software, or major Microsoft updates that cannot be installed automatically by Automatic Update, the software will not install properly, and you may get no indication of that at all while installing the software.
To avoid that possibilty, you should always DISABLE the resident module(s) of anti-malware programs, BEFORE you install third party software (software other than most Microsoft Updates, etc., that did not come with Windows ), especially when it's a major or complicated software package.
E.g. if you are using the free or paid version of AVG, you should disable the Resident Shield in AVG's 's settings in Windows (in AVG 2012 that's done under the title AntiVirus). In Norton (Symantec) products, there may be several things you need to disable, or set so they don't load for a specific short amount of time.
If you don't know how to do that, tell us which anti-malware software you are using.
When you are sure the software has installed correctly, re-enable the resident module(s).
How to disable your security applications
" I've ran Norton a thousand times, and Spybot, etc...."
You SHOULD NOT install more than one anti-malware program in Windows that has one or more resident module - a part that runs all the time looking for suspicious activity. If more than one of them has a resident module, they are likely to CLASH with each other and cause you problems !
E.g. Both Spybot free and paid, and Norton products trial and paid, have at least one resident module !!
The free version of Malwarebytes has no resident module that causes a problem, but the paid version of it does have a resident module that might.
AVG free and paid, Avast free and paid, AdAware free and paid, McAfee products, Microsoft's free Windows Defender anti-spyware software, Microsoft's free Security Essentials software, ALL have at least one resident module.
"Sometimes the script error mentions chrome, which I'm not using and have deleted."
As I said...
"You shouldn't get any messages about Chrome if you un-installed it properly."
"I've tried reinstalling Flash. It only seems to stop though when I disabled flash."
" I have uninstalled/reinstalled flash and still have the problem. "
In that case, it's probably not caused by Flash, but Flash is affected by whatever the problem is..
Are you getting specific script errors when you do specific things with whatever that are the same each time ?
If yes, quote the error message(s).
Your problem MAY be caused by a problem with Windows script or Java script.
Do you get script errors when you use IE ?
By the way.....
- all XP versions come with IE 6, but it does NOT work properly with most web pages anymore . You should install IE 8.
Download Internet Explorer 8
- Even if you don't want to use IE
- installing IE 8 installs some files that are not specifically for the IE browser that all web browsers benefit from.
- there are some things you can only do in IE.
E.g. Use the Windows Update or Microsoft Update web pages on the Microsoft web site..
