    Since about 3 weeks ago I get a script error with every new browser window I open. When I turn off the Spyware Blaster, I don't get the error anymore.When I turn it back on, it comes back.

    I am using XP and explorer. The error reads " Internet Explorer Script Error "

    and goes on to tell which line and character the error occurs on. The error is always the goes like this

    Error: Expected '}'
    Code: 0
    URL: hxxp://

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Well, that site is in various spyware-blocking lists, such as Eric Howes IE-SpyAd and hpguru's Hosts file, so the only reason your browser would be going there at all is if you have a hijacker present on your PC. Unless you really mean to visit that page?

    The errors are probably occurring because SpywareBlaster is either restricting the website, or disabling an ActiveX control used at that site. In either case, those errors are actually a good thing at the moment because they are at least warning you that you have a problem on your system.

    The usual recommendation is to have a detailed spyware review done for your system. This involves running some scanners, cleaners and finally posting a HijackThis Log on a forum that provides spyware review and cleaning services. However, I'm afraid we have discontinued the spyware analysis service at Wilders. See this announcement for a list of other sites that still perform this function:

    There are plenty of security forums out there that still process HijackThis logs, so just pick one but be sure to read their posting rules. Almost all of them have a specific process you must follow to get help now - simply because it is so much work to process a log. This webpage lists a number of forums, many of which do still handle HijackThis log reviews:

    SpywareInfo, CastleCops (formerly ComputerCops) and Net-Integration are good forums that do this type of work.
