    Why aren't they fixed?

    Unfortunately script errors are a very common problem throughout inet land. Rather than get indigestion over it I installed a free app called "no script" and my script issue problem is solved. At least with Mozilla.

    There shouldn't be ANY pop-up ads on this site. Where are you experiencing them? - Ian

    It appears to be the E-Bay ads.

    It won't let me copy the error message (cut-paste) so I'll have to write it down and retype it it if required.

    Thanks,

    Here is the first portion of the error message:

    Internet Explorer Script Error
    An Error has occurred on Script Page

    Line: 8
    Char: 419
    Error: Syntax Error
    Code: 0
    URL: http://ads.gmodules.com/ig/ifr?

    url:http:gga.ebay.cachetastic.com//xml



    I hope this is some help.

    Sounds like a trojan on your PC.

    I just ran a Deep Scan on anti-Virus and all is clear.

    What ever generates the E-bay ads is causing errors in them... When the ads are gone so are the error messages.

    I think it's a virus or someone who embedded something onto your PC. We don't currently use Ebay ads here, and it's very common for people to malicously try and get Ebay cookies to people because Ebay pays a percentage of those sales for the life of the cookie, so the more people that hackers infect the more money they make. Pop Up Ads are common because the second it's opened the cookie is embedded.

    One Virus program typically won't get rid of most spyware. Try this method here:

    This worked great and cleaned my PC perfectly. - Ian

    Now that the E-Bay ads are gone--- I no longer get the error messages.

    The E-Bay ads have been gone for several days, that I have noticed.

    I use Avanquest System Suite as my anti-virus, anti-malware program. It's best I have found. I think real errors exist in the E-Bay ads.
