Hi everyone!

For the last week or so i have been getting these pop ups all the time. They are a small window that have "Just-In-Time Debugging" at the top and it asks me to select a debugger. and then it has "New Instance of Microsoft Script Editor" under the heading of possible debuggers. At the bottom it has the "Yes" or "No" buttons.

I can't seem to pin point it to a program that is running etc.

Is it possible that i may have a virus, if so can anyone help?

Thanks
Renee

Sorry i forgot to add operatng system. I am running Windows XP Professional. I also have AVG Free edition installed as my antivirus. Thanks

Just-In-Time debugging is a feature that launches the Visual Studio debugger automatically when a program, running outside Visual Studio, encounters a fatal error. Just-In-Time debugging allows you to examine the error before the application is terminated by the operating system. The Visual Studio debugger does not need to be running when the error occurs.

If an error occurs while Just-In-Time debugging is enabled, a dialog box opens, asking if you want to debug the program and which debugger you want to use.

Thanks for your help quietman7.

I'm a little worried i might have a virus. I've never had this pop up before and now i get it about 60 times a day. Do you think its possible that this may also be the result of a virus? I will disable it as you suggested.

Thanks again!

If you do a search on the net, you will find the Just-In-Time debugging issue a common complaint with various causes and possible solutions. What works for one person may not work for another. There are discussions at the Microsoft Developer Network with various solutions suggested in these topics:Also see Unhandled exceptions are caught by the Visual Studio JIT debugger instead of Dr. Watson.
