Getting a script error in IE intermittently that freezes IE

Specs: Windows 7
I am getting a script error in IE that effectively freezes the browser. Even if you hit "No" or "Yes" it just pops back up and won't go away.. I have already disabled debug options under Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, etc. Just like almost everyone suggests on the internet. I have run Malwarebytes, AdCleander, and Junk removal by Malwarebytes. Nothing seems to work. I did create a couple lf log files from both AdCleaner and Junk Removal that I would post here but I can't see how to attach a file and they would be a little long to simply post here.

I got the same experience with some websites, particular news websites.
Stopped using IE and using firefox and chrome.

If you have Google toolbar then remove it because it is known to cause script errors.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I was getting freeze errors with Firefox a while ago and traced it back to Flash Player and all of the new high level graphics ads on sites. I set Flash to Ask Before Activating in the Add Ons in my browser and no more freezes.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

My wife had similar just today on the desktop in our den in Firefox. I forced Firefox closed using Process Explorer (Task Manager would have worked) and reopened it. Firefox offers a recovery after a crash so I looked at the windows ans tabs and saw one tab that basically was this script error pop up (apparently a persistent but fake one), unchecked it and restored the other tabs and no more problems. My advice is to force closed IE so it no longer shows in Task Manager and restart it. If the error does not return then it was the same fake error that came up through a web page you clicked on. I also ran Malwarebytes which you may want to also do but in my case it did not find anything.
