Hydranix's Telemetry Disabler (Script to stop Windows tracking you)

Question: Hydranix's Telemetry Disabler (Script to stop Windows tracking you)

I wrote a quick batch script to disable some of the Windows 10 telemetry.

It's interactive, safe*, and easy to use.


Download Link: Script


I'm working on a more comprehensive application to control the telemetry in windows 10. A true C++ application, but there's a lot more testing to be done before I can share that.



* Safe, but some options are permanent.

Preferred Solution: Hydranix's Telemetry Disabler (Script to stop Windows tracking you)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Windows 10 brought us Cortana. Edge. A brand new Start Menu. Oh, and a host of new and extended ways for Microsoft to capture data on your activities.

Fortunately 2015 has also seen the growth of a whole new market for programs to turn these technologies off again, and Win10 Spy Disabler is the latest example.
The program is a sub-2MB download which unzips 32 and 64-bit executables. Just double-click the appropriate version for you, or run the 32-bit if you?re unsure.

Launch the program and it displays a list of 20+ "privacy tweaks" you can apply. Some are clearly Windows 10-specific ("Always Send DoNotTrack on IE/ Edge", "Prevent Wifi Sense from connecting to open hotspots"), others are a little more ambiguous ("Disable Telemetry & Data Collection"), and a few are standard privacy tweaks for any recent Windows version ("Disable Recent Files, Folders, Docs, Progs").

If you?re looking for fine control then this probably isn?t the program for you. "Disable Cortana, WebSearch, BingSearch" is a single option, for instance: if you only want to disable one of those, you?re out of luck.

Still, Win10 Spy Disabler does a good job of keeping you safe, by offering to create a system restore point before applying any tweaks.

There?s also a bonus "System Tweaks" tab which gives easy access to more general Windows settings: "Show Hidden and System Files", "Disable Windows Remote Assist... Read more

I don't know about you, but I've used Winamp for over a decade.
It's been my favorite media player, and still is.
Nullsoft is (was) an amazing group of developers.

Nullsoft's other works like NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System)
is still used by millions of developers world-wide.

Winamp though is an amazing media player. It's too bad the company
which owned Nullsoft (AOL) shut them down in Dec of 2013.


In honor of their hard work, I'm releasing my personal compilation
of software/plugins that I use for Winamp. I hope some of you
can enjoy it the way I do.


This package contains the final released version of Winamp.
(signed official installer, so no malware)

It contains the best icon packs for files which Winamp handles.

I've included my favorite skins and the software which also
brings a handful of enhancments along with the skins.

My favorite part though, is the collection of Milkdrop presets.
Milkdrop is Winamp's audio visualization, which is second
to none.

Firefox 4 that is coming out has a feature built in that tells websites not to track the user. You can download the latest beta now and see if it works for you. You could also try going into your privacy settings and disable cookies or at least third party cookies. You'll need to keep session cookies on though.

Hi:

Don't know if this is the right place to post this question but will give it a try.

I'm very concerned about the billions of bullets that are being ordered by the US government in advance of the November election. Call me an alarmist but I want to go invisible on the net. I've stupidly (in hindsight) made some critical comments about the current government at a couple of news sites -- nothing inflammatory, just political comments. Now, I wish I had refrained from that,and would like to find something that can essentially close the barn door after the horse has bolted. Plus guard my computer and identity in the future.

Complicating this, all of my accounts are online as I currently live overseas. My bank account is in the States and my credit cards are all registered to my US address. It is nearly impossible where I live now to establish a regular checking account so getting rid of my US bank is not an option. Also, I'm registered to vote.

Most of the info and programs I've come across deal with security from cyber attacks. That's not what I'm interested in. I want something that will make me as much of a ghost as possible. I keep reading about people who successfully cloak their identity but have never come across the names of the programs that accomplish that.

Is there such a program -- or programs ?

Thanks,
PH

I've seen Cliff's posting in Windows 8 forum, about how to avoid telemetry in Windows. After checking my Windows 8.1, there were three of the patches for telemetry/upgrade preparation installed from the list. A quick check on Windows 7 showed six of the patches installed, all marked as "important".

My guess is that Windows 8.1 has some of the telemetry already incorporated in the OS, that would explain why there are "only" three of the telemetry patches.

Is there any way whatsoever to set my computer from Win7-Win10 to not send any information out to Microsoft.

I understand that there is a "Limited" amount of data being sent when set to "basic" however, the interpretation of the user agreement by various organizations and firms is variable to what that actually means.

Answer:Windows 10 Pro Telemetry - Disable

Hi, two free programs have been designed aimed at changing settings to minimise reporting:
O&O shutup
Spybot Anti-beacon

These only change settings you can change manually.

Note one side-effect of changing some of the privacy settings is you may find a red message
'Some settings are managed by your organisation'
which is confusing and some find disconcerting.
(E.g. when in Settings, Privacy, General)

Sometimes this also means you come across a feature or setting that no longer works.

However these programs also have the means to change things back to default, so are relatively safe.

I would suggest
a. Turn system restore on (it's off by default in Win 10)
b. set a restore point before using them (they may prompt for this anyway, I can't recall)
c. don't change all settings at once; change some, check everything's ok for a while, then continue.

Note much has been written about the significance of non-personal reporting to MS, as you will be aware.

What's the most through and safest way to disable Windows 10 telemetry?

Answer:Disable Windows 10 Telemetry?

The safest way is to go through your privacy settings and Cortana & Search settings and set them up as you see fit.  I did this upon installing Windows 10 and that's all I did and most of the things people are complaining about, e.g., ads on the start menu, simply do not happen if you've tweaked the appropriate setting or settings (e.g., the "Let apps use my advertising ID" in general privacy settings for the prior example) to your liking.  It's not difficult nor is it particularly time consuming.  One can run through all the Privacy and Cortana settings in less than 15 minutes, tops.
 
I don't encourage anyone to turn off the system health telemetry, period.  All major OS developers have this sort of telemetry, and it's very helpful for catching "bad updates" on those occasions where they occur before they've been rolled out to the entire world and for improving little bits and pieces of the OS.  If you're really desperate to do that Spybot Anti-Beacon is probably your best choice.  Note well that this kind of telemetry is not new, not by a long shot, and has served its legitimate purpose for a long time now.  The telemetry related to building a personal profile on you for use by the Cortana personal digital assistant functionality is entirely new, and can be entirely turned off via a couple of switches.  If you had been using the Cortana PDA functionality and want to purge all "cloud memory" regarding yourself the links to do...

I did a search of my hard-drive today looking for files which had been modified today (by searching for datemodified:today), I do this sometimes, anyway, one of the things which came up was a file called Microsoft-Windows-Application-Experience%4Program-Telemetry.evtx . I wondered what this was so took a look at it, it opens a thing in event viewer which then shows within it a list of "information" events (that is events classed as "information" rather than "error"s or "critical" bugs). The "source" for ALL these events is "Application-Experience", their dates and times go right back to when the computer was new. They all have "general" descriptions reading :"Compatibility fix applied to C:\[path of an exe file]Fix information:[program name], {[code of numbers and letters with some dashes separating them]}, 0X{some other number]"The "details" "xml view" then shows some more information including precise times, "event IDs", "threadIDs", the "name" of my computer, a "channel", a "security userID", a "processID", a "fixID", a start time, "flags", the file's path and two microsoft URLs.It doesn't do this for every program but there are a lot for ms office programs, a lot for 7z and there seems to be one for every time I run vlc media player akong with a few relating to avast antivirus.

Answer:How much telemetry is collected by windows 8.1? something odd I noticed

CEIP has been around for years and only collects data about Microsoft products and some third party apps that connect with Microsoft products.  It has no user identifiable information in it.  You can opt out though it appears the data is still collected just in case you ever opt in.  Since June it seems like several of the updates have enabled privacy settings that were initially not allowed by the user so you need to check any settings you set limiting what Microsoft has access to.
 
It is interesting to note that Microsoft in update KB3080149 included the statement "Reduces the network connections on a Windows system that doesn’t participate in the Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP)."
So by not participating you are being 'punished'.
 
There are other updates that add telelmetry to consent.exe and also add additional diagnostic and telemetry data collection.  They say they are just collecting metadata, which is the same data the NSA claims to be collecting.  The question is does using the same term mean the same thing.  Privacy in Windows today is questionable.

This topic it may have been discussed somewhere in tenforums, if so please redirect me.

I decided to use Windows Defender (WD) and SmartScreen (SS) as AV. I would like to tweak its settings to avoid telemetry as far as it does not reduce the effectiveness of its protections.
Do I need to send cloud telemetry?
I understand that Disabling SS will lower the protection but I read that SS send a lot of things and it is of a privacy concern for many.
Does SS have access to the browsing history and surfing habit of the user? Does it send details of apps, files, TV series and the like the user watch or download?
With the upcoming W10 fall upgrade WD will be greatly enhanced with a number of new features. I suspect more telemetry too.

I'll much appreciate any thought, suggestion and insight how to find a balance between security and privacy.

I have been noticing lately a lot of people keep asking the same question on how to prevent the Windows 10 upgrade so here is a list of updates that need to be hidden in order to prevent the Windows 10 Upgrade or prevent updates that enable Telemetry, some of them are system preparation for the upgrade so you may not find them all in your updates list until a pre-requistie update was installed before.

If doing a clean installation of Windows 7 or 8, you need to scan the list of updates carefully everytime updates appear to ensure none of them re-appears as Micro$h4ft has been showing some of them again even if you hide them.
If you have already installed Windows and did a few updates, then head over to Control Panel > Programs and Features > View Installed Updates then go from the top to the bottom through the list to ensure none of them is installed, if you do find one installed, then uninstall it, reboot, then check for updates and once it appears right click on it and hide it.

Answer:Windows Updates to hide to prevent Windows 10 Upgrade / Disable Telemetry

Yes, I've kept a list of those updates for Win 10 and Telemetry and don't have them on my PC because I did hide them all multiple times (Win 10) and yet some came back over and over. Therefore I don't trust Microsoft anymore and don't have the automatic updates set anymore for at least 6 months.

Just checked them again against your list and all is fine here.

I've posted this question on Reddit and wasn't able to get a definitive answer.
Anyway, I've read in a few places that Telemetry can be completely disabled on Windows 10 Education. I am able to set it to 0 via gpedit but I'm not sure if it's disabled completely or not.
The gpedit entry does state the following: "Setting a value of 0 is applicable to enterprise and server devices only. Setting a value of 0 for other devices is equivalent to choosing a value of 1."
When I've read about the differences between 10 Enterprise and 10 Education, I've never seen anything about Telemetry mentioned. The only differences I can find are the watermark on the desktop and Education not being able to use LTSB.
How can I tell if 10 Education behaves like 10 Enterprise in regards to setting Telemetry to 0 (disables it completely) or like 10 Pro (sends basic info regardless of setting it to 0)?

How to disable Telemetry and Data Collection in Windows 10

Windows 10 now comes with the telemetry feature enabled by default which collects all sorts of user activity and sends it to Microsoft. Unfortunately, Microsoft has provided no way to disable it completely using the Settings app for Home and Pro editions of Windows 10. Only Enterprise users can turn it off. Here is a solution for editions other than Enterprise to disable Telemetry and Data Collection in Windows 10.

Hi, I have a question about the telemetry (spying and personal data theft) Windows updates. I have read that Microsoft created a bunch of these and want to uninstall them.

I found 3 websites that list a bunch of updates. I know how to uninstall using command prompt and "wusa", and don't plan to use any third-party batch scripts, I will do it all manually.

My question is whether these 3 sources are reliable/safe sources of lists of which updates to uninstall, or of there's some update they list that I really should not remove (because it's necessary for security or fixing a bug, or not actually telemetry/spyware nor altering the computer to prepare it to "upgrade" to Windows 10). These are the 3 sources I am asking about:

I read about this tip to remove one kind of telemetry from Windows 7. It's from AskVG.com:






Quote:
Our reader "Xircal" shared some useful information with us. Even if the user opts out of the CEIP program, another task called "Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser" continues to relay data to Microsoft via a log file called "AutoLogger-Diagtrack-Listener.etl" present in "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Diagnosis\ETLLogs\AutoLogger\" folder.

You can disable this Compatibility Appraiser task using following steps:

1. Press WIN+R keys together to launch RUN dialog box, type regedit in RUN and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor.

2. Now go to following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\WMI\AutoLogger\AutoLogger-Diagtrack-Listener

In right-side pane, change the value of Start DWORD to 0 to turn off the auto logger program.

3. Again go to following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\WMI\Autologger\AutoLogger-Diagtrack-Listener\{DD17FA14-CDA6-7191-9B61-37A28F7A10DA}

In right-side pane, look for the DWORD Enabled. Its value would be set to 1 by default. Double-click on the DWORD and change its value from a 1 to 0 to disable the task.

Restart your computer to take effect.


Besides not contributing to Microsoft's massive volume of collected data, are there any downsides to following this tip? Does it break anything (except sending telemetry data to Microsoft)?

Answer:Is this a good tip to remove one kind of telemetry from Windows 7?

Believe it or not, one of the updates that made it possible for Microsoft to bring the Get Windows 10 nagware app on so many Windows 7 computers is back, this time without a clear reason.

KB2952664 landed on Windows 7 PCs on October 4, and Microsoft hasn?t yet provided us with information on why exactly it re-released this patch given the fact that it doesn?t seem to bring any notable changes.

According to the official KB page, this update is only supposed to improve the upgrade experience to Windows 10, but given the fact that free upgrades are no longer available, it?s hard to believe that this makes sense for anyone.



Telemetry update
On the other hand, it?s important to note that this is a telemetry update, so it helps Microsoft collect information on compatibility issues that might be experienced during the upgrade to Windows 10.

O&O ShutUp10 Receives New Features to Block Windows 10 Data Collection
​O&O ShutUp10, an application that can disable all data collection processes in Windows 10 and turn off a little more than the options you see in the Settings screen of the operating system.

And thanks to an update released today, the program is even more effective, as it fixes a number of bugs but also introduces some new options.

New options:
O&O ShutUp10 1.3.1355 now comes with an option to disable the Network Connectivity Status Indicator (NCSI) and the Wi-Fi sense for all or just the currently logged-in user. Wi-Fi Sense is a Windows 10 feature that allows your device to automatically connect to wireless networks that have previously been used by your friends on Facebook, Outlook.com, or Skype.
Passwords for these networks are securely transmitted between contacts on Windows 10, so this way, you can remain connected all the time when known networks are discovered.
The same version of the app also comes with improvements to the SmartScreen filter, but also several other bug fixes, so in case you?ve experienced issues with a previous release, this is the right moment to update.
Remember that Microsoft does not recommend anyone to turn to such apps because they could affect the performance and reliability of the operating system. Some features might be disabled, including Windows Update, which is a critical service to make sure that your computer is fully protected against th... Read more

Microsoft Re-Releases KB2652664, KB2976978 Telemetry Updates for Windows 7/8.1

Microsoft has silently re-released two Windows telemetry updates that were linked to the infamous Get Windows 10 (GWX) app that the company pushed to Windows 7 and 8.1 users in mid-2015 to prepare the migration to Windows 10.

The company, however, does not disclose what exactly is new in KB2952664 for Windows 7 and KB 2976978 for Windows 8.1, providing just a generic description that doesn?t say much about their purpose.

?This update performs diagnostics on the Windows systems that participate in the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program. The diagnostics evaluate the compatibility status of the Windows ecosystem, and help Microsoft to ensure application and device compatibility for all updates to Windows. There is no GWX or upgrade functionality contained in this update,? the company says on the KB page.
The two updates are currently listed as optional and it?s not known if the company wants to promote them to the important branch next week when it releases this month?s Patch Tuesday updates.

Telemetry updates
What?s also important to know is that these updates are supposed to be shipped to users in the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program and are listed as compatibility updates for keeping Windows up-to-date.

In the past, the two updates were linked with telemetry data collection in Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, and they launched a Windows task identified as Do... Read more

We knew this already, but a nice read nevertheless!!

Like many of you, I am concerned about the telemetry, spying and other surveillance features, known or unknown, of Windows 10. It has concerned me enough to push me to Linux Mint as my main operating system. Even so, I wanted to better understand Windows 10, but internet search results for a decent windows 10 traffic analysis leave a lot to be desired. As such, I decided to do my own investigating on what, exactly, Windows 10 is doing traffic-wise, and post the results. For this analysis, I wanted to simply analyse the network traffic of Windows 10 on a clean install, and just let it sit and run without using it.

What I have done for this analysis:
I have installed DD-WRT on a router connected to the internet and configured remote logging to the Linux Mint laptop in #2.
I have installed Linux Mint on a laptop, and setup rsyslog to accept remote logging from the DD-WRT router.
I have installed Virtualbox on the Linux Mint laptop, and installed Windows 10 EnterprisePNG on Virtualbox. I have chosen the customized installation option where I disabled three pages of tracking options.
I have configured the DD-WRT router to drop and log all connection attempts via iptables through the DD-WRT router by Windows 10 Enterprise.
Aside from installing Windows 10 Enterprise, and verifying the internet connection through ipconfig and ping yahoo.com, I have not used the Windows 10 installation at all (the basis for the first part of th... Read more

Microsoft Re-Releases Windows Telemetry Updates KB2952664 and KB2976978

Even though this month?s Patch Tuesday was delayed, Microsoft rolled out non-security Office updates this week, targeting both Office 2013 and Office 2016 with a total of 17 patches.

But what?s more interesting is that this week, the company also re-released two patches there were previously linked to telemetry data collection in Windows 7 and Windows 8.1

First and foremost, the Office patches. Microsoft shipped 5 different updates for Office 2013, with dedicated patches for OneDrive, Project, and Visio. Then, there?s Office 2016, which is getting not only general patches, but also updates that are specifically aimed at Access, OneDrive for Business, PowerPoint, Project, Publisher, and Visio, bringing the total count to 12 updates.

Telemetry patches
In addition to these Office updates, Microsoft is also re-releasing KB2952664 and KB2976978 for Windows 7 and 8.1, respectively for a reason that?s not yet known.

As Woody Leonhard of InfoWorld notes, these updates first showed up at a time when everyone was struggling to deal with the infamous Get Windows 10 (GWX) app, though Microsoft specifically mentions that they are not related to this application in any way.

Their official KB pages indeed indicate that both updates were re-released on March 7, while their descriptions point out that only users who are part of the Windows Consumer Experience Improvement Program should get them.

Quite often when I 'Fire Up' from Hibernate the above Warning comes to screen,
Question is - which is the best option?
To continue or to Stop?

Answer:Unresponsive Script = Continue or Stop?

You don't say what you have running as you come out of Hibernate; my guess would be Firefox is one as this is not an uncommon occurrence with either the browser itself or an Add-on - but I have little idea what actually causes it!!
I do know that the problem can be resolved (sometimes) by either reinstalling Firefox or creating a new profile. If you create a new profile make certain you transfer your bookmarks before you delete the old profile or you will lose them; here's how link text. You should also make a note of your saved Passwords, user names and the sites they apply to - just in case.
Mozilla also offer some advice that may help link text

Hi:
There are 5(five) different picture/photo web-sites I've been looking at for long time. However, for the past two or three weeks I'm getting the following error message whenever I trying to look at those pictures.

"A script on this page is causing your web brower to run slowly.
If it continues to run, your computer might become responsive."

Yes No

One of web-sites is 'Rail Pictures Net Photoes USA'

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Answer:Stop running this script? What's wrong with?

I've had it also, it comes from one of the addins most likely either Adobe Flash player or Java Script.
almost all of the time it has to do with bad coding of the script being effected by recent update in the program running the script complain to the web site giving them as much info as possible.

A script on this page is causing internet explorer to run slowly
if it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive.

hi, a few days ago I started getting this message, the strange thing is that IE doesn't even have to be running at the time. I could be wrong but it seems to have something to do with yahoo messenger. reason being it is the only program I know that is running when I get this message.

I have checked to see if there are any recent updates with yahoo messenger, I have also have fun McFee, Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware too with none of them finding any thing.

do anyone have any ideas on what might cause this?

I have mentioned on a few occasions about having problems with the PCA website using the three main browsers, namely Firefox, Chrome and IE.
This doesn't happen with other websites I use on a daily basis.
IE seems to freeze,Google Chrome was found to work the best, but that as now become annoying due to 'waiting for' slowness, before pages will open. So I have gone back to Firefox, which now seems to incur regular error messages requesting action of 'Continue' or 'Stop Script'. Clicking on either doesn't really resolve the problem.
Any suggestions on possibly solutions appreciated.

Answer:Mozilla Firefox stop script or continue?

i had this too with ie,FF17 was slightly better but still slow. yet both browsers work ok on other sites. chrome is the only browser that will open pca as fast as anyother web site

Novice computers users wouldn't even know what scripts are and that Python is a programming language, so I think you must have more experience than you let on. :)What exactly is happening?

Suddenly started happening the last couple weeks on restart of Firefox. I use Session Manager to restore the open tabs because FF is terrible on memory, gets clogged several times a day. So now this script message comes up every restart. Today it did it more, several times. When it started, memory was fine and I was working. By the time I had to just close time, memory was full. It hogged it all!

I've seen "solutions" in forums, which I have tried, to no avail. I have no Skype ever installed on this computer. I have done the settings change in Flash. I have done every other change suggested except doing the Safe Mode and checking all the extensions. What a waste of time as I see others have done it and still the error occurs. OR they say it was Skype, which is n/a in my case.

Reinstalls of FF do not solve it for others either.

If it is an extension other than Skype, surely others have had the same problem and we can know what that extension is.

This is one example, and the most frequent. Others are the same except for the number at the end is changed. I think I saw an 837 today.
Script: resource://gre/modules/commonj...pass-dot-com/data/onloadwff.js:9

It does this on a random tab that is still not loaded on restart. I don't load many tabs to keep memory use down. So when FF restarts, all are unloaded except the one I was on at closure. But then this error chooses one random tab to load and show its error! Random, never the same. Mostly on Facebook, b... Read more

Have found a tweak to stop script error reporting in IE6 (found on PC Mag website) . I understand the error reporting message is responsible for scripting error messages - which I am getting constantly. My problem is that I do not know how to implement the tweak. Here it is:

HKCU/Software/Microsoft/InternetExplorer/Main
IE WatsonEnabled String 0
 

Answer:Tweak to stop script error reporting for IE6

That tweak is a registry string.

It involves editing the registry (Start - Regedit).

If you make an error in the registry, your system is toast basically. If you need to ask about the string, then it suggests that you have not edited the registry before?

Accordingly I would not recommend it unless your system is fully backed up. All data can be lost.

Proceed at your own risk however. Its not a difficult task, the string you give is the folder/subfolder location of the string, andf the existing (1) should be modified to a (0) by the look of it.

Personally I suggest that you would be better fixing the system rather than hiding the error messages.

Question: Add-on disabler?

I get that pop-up ever so often. Looks legit, but thought I'd ask before messing with it.Thanks in advance.

Answer:Add-on disabler?

You're using Internet Explorer 9, right? (You didn't say). This is the "Speed up browsing by disabling add-ons Message" that annoys many people. Depending on which version of Windows you have. You cannot remove it from Internet Explorer's menus or options, but you can do these things:You can increase the average page load time delay limitWhen the popup notification message appears again, click on "Choose add-ons" button. It'll open a new window. Now look at the bottom of the window. You'll see "Tell me when the delay caused by add-ons exceeds:" option. It would be set to 0.20 seconds by default. Click on the drop-down box and set it to 10.00 seconds. Click on "Done" button and it should disable the popup notification message, or at least make it not appear very often.You can disable it by using Group Policy Editor available in some versions of Windowshttp://www.onlinecomputertips.com/windows/ie9_addon_message.htmlor by editing the Registry (This is ONLY for people that know what they are doing!)Under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies - add a new sub-key Ext - create a DWORD value named DisableAddonLoadTimePerformanceNotifica tions - value 1 - no popups, value 0 - popups enabled.

Hello. Does anyone know how to stop frequently recurring Script Error messages? I have run a few different virus scans and CCleaner. None of them found anything so I don't know if the problem is caused by a virus/malware or if it's a Windows 10 issue.

Background: Upgraded to Win 10 last month. Tried Edge but didn't like it so switched back to Internet Explorer, and that's when the problem started. When online, I get Script Error messages on many sites (but so far not here, whew), and have to click either Yes/No or X several times to get rid of the message.

I have IE (in ?Advanced?) set to disable scripts on IE and everywhere else and to not repeat the Script Error message (sample pic attached; the links change each time), but it still happens. TIA

Answer:how can i stop java script from running on computer?virus?

If you went through all of that & no fix was found, it might be good to just reinstall the OS. If it's that bad, even if something does come along to fix it, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to trust the PC to be safe since viruses/malware leave bits of themselves..

If you do want to try to clean it, Norton offers an online scan for free, you will need to be using IE to run it:

Windows 8.1 and IE11 and I have both messages except on Facebook/games. I click on whichever message comes up which makes no difference. Eventually there is a response but there have been times when I've given up.

Tried a variety of actions, none of which work. Uninstalled Flash Player in IE add ons, games wouldn't play so reinstalled. Informed that I needed to upgrade Flash Player, tried, told that I already had it? Then told I didn't need it?

Script error boxes in IE already ticked. Unticked. No difference. So ticked again.
Tried SFC/SCANNOW to see if there was a systems problem, message received was There is a system repair pending which requires reboot etc. Restart Windows and run SFC again. Did that 3 times. Nothing.

Just don't know what to do next Any ideas?

Answer:Stop/Start a program running on a server with a script
