How can I disable the Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) script debugger?

A. If you run a script in IE that results in an error, IE gives you the option to debug the script. To disable this option, perform the following steps:

  1. Start a registry editor (e.g., regedit.exe).
  2. Navigate to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main registry subkey.
  3. Double-click the Disable Script Debugger value.
  4. Set the value data to "yes" to disable the script debugger, then click OK (setting the value to "no" enables the script debugger).
  5. Restart IE for the change to take effect.
