Control Panel services access is blocked and other problems


B

Bill

I cannot get into the Control Panel Services because I get an
"Internet Explorer Script Error" and clicking either Yes or No on the
error diaglog does not close the error dialog. I have to use Task
Manager to end the control panel task.

I also am getting the same script error message when I use Visual
Studio's MSDN help. These problems started a few days ago.

I cannot turn the Windows Firewall off in Control Panel. when I click
the green ON button nothing happens. When I click the hyperlink for
help on Windows Firewall, nothing happens.

Windows help does not work at all. Pressing F1 when the Desktop has
focus does nothing.

I have checked the security settings in IE to make sure scripting,
activex are enabled.
I also disabled script errors and smooth scrolling in the Advanced
tab of IE

None of the above helped. I then restored all settings in IE to their
defaults and that did no good.

Any ideas out there?

Every time that you turn on a browser to view a page, your PC stores a local copy of that page in a temporary file. If the size of the temporary Internet files folder becomes way too big, at that point some display problems might start occurring whenever you open a webpage. Clearing the folder every once in a while might just help to resolve the problem.

Another method is:

1. Start your Browser.
2. On the Tools menu, tap on Internet Options. If you can't see the Tools menu, press Alt to display the menus.
3. Click on the General tab.
4. Under Browsing History, tap Delete.
5. In the Delete Browsing History dialog box, tap to select the following check boxes, and then click on Delete:

Temporary Internet Files
Cookies
History


6. Click on the Close button, and then choose to click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.
