Currently on my desktop machine here.

My laptop has a problem.
When I start Internet explorer it would take 5-10 mins before an error message window would open saying VB script ++ error.
And then windows would complain virtual memory was too low and all the other currently running programs would start sending error messages.

Worried about a Virus I put on A trial version of Avast, now each time I open IE it opens something saying "Script Blocker" If I take Avast off the problem returns.

Is there anyway I can get rid of the script thats eating my memory when I open Internet explorer.
I already payed and run another and while It's nice to have the script disabled when I open IE and it works. I would rather have the script gone then blocked.

Thank you in advance.

Internet Explorer 8 is out now. Best to upgrade in order to take advantage of more securer internet access etc. You will also need to upgrade your Flash plugin by going to the Adobe website.

If you installed an AV program after the fact...it seems likely to me that you have a malware situation of some type.

Please try a couple of these free online scanners to see if anything has slipped by your protection:
(Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully)

If you find that you're infected (or the scan doesn't complete or closes unexpectedly), post in the Am I Infected forum located here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/
