I tend to be very skeptical of Microsoft's ability to do anything right. Consequently, I never install anything by Microsoft on my primary machine until it has been out for 6 months to a year. I'll test things on other machines, but not on my primary machine. Can you blame me?
So, I just installed IE7, start it up and immediately I get a script error on the runonce page. Hahahahahahahaha!
Windows XP Pro SP3 1.5Gb RAM.
Installed IE7 and all of the current updates.
Start IE7 which brings up the page:
Immediately I get a box: Internet Explorer Script Error
An error has occurred in the script on this page.
Error: 'window.external' is null or not an object
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?
I have clicked No, Tools menu, Internet Option, Advanced and
checked both of the boxes for "Disable script debugging" and cleared the check box for "Display a notification about every script error."
But doing that doesn't help. If I check the bubble on the Runonce page to "Keep my current default search provider" and click the big Save your settings button IE7 will not finish the process, and clear the Runonce page out. The next time I start IE I still get the runonce page. AAAAAuuuuugggggghhhhhh!
