Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

Open Question

Why am I seeing Lavasoft/Yahoo error handler?

Recently internet explorer has started going to this weird page like it might transfer to if a web page is not available. The page itself says "Lavasoft" in the corner, though the address bar starts off as "us.yhs4.search.yahoo.com/yhs/errorhandler". What is annoying me the most about this is that this page is showing up for websites that I KNOW are working at the time, because I am able to access them from my other devices no problem. I use no software from Yahoo, or even have it as a homepage. I have -nothing- on my computer that is Yahoo. I have cleared my cookies, scanned for add/spy/malware, restored my computer to a couple of weeks back, and done an inspection for unauthorized programs, yet the unwanted page remains. How do I get rid of this horror?

SOURCE: IE8 goes to the wrong site. I can Yahoo search and

Run a search with your anti-virus/anti-malware software. It sounds like you may have been hijacked. Check the web for a program called hijack. You can run the program and it will create a log file that can be posted at the Major Geeks website. They will help identify possible problems. You can also try out programs such as SuperAntiSpyware, or Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware. They are both rated well for keeping junk out of your system.

Internet explorer cannot display webpage, dns script error? I can't play games anymore on worldwinner and I just played yesterday now I can't even bring up the website?


Internet browsers can pick up a multitude of problem while on the web, especially doing complex tasks like gaming.
Best to try to reset your IE by deleting your Cookies and Offline content.
In IE, under Tools, you'll find Internet Options. Go there. On that page you'll see Browsing History, and a button to Delete items. Push the Delete button and it will ask you what you'd like to delete. Delete at least your Cookies and all Temporary/Offline Content. Then close all your IE windows, once it's finished, then restart it and try your game website again. It should start up.
Additonally you might try Ad-aware from Lavasoft (it's free) as it will scan your computer for adware that may clog up your IE over time.

Running script error


Method 1: Disable script debugging loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); If the only sign of a problem is the error message, and Web sites are working, you can probably ignore the error. Also, if the problem only happens on one or two Web pages, it might be a problem with those pages. If you decide to ignore the errors, you can disable script debugging.

Note If this problem occurs on more than one or two sites, do not disable script debugging. Go to method 2 now.

To turn off the Scripting Debugger in Internet Explorer 6, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. On the Advanced tab, click to select the Disable script debugging check box. and then click OK .
To turn off notification about every script error in Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. On the Advanced tab, click to clear the Display a notification about every script error check box, and then click OK.
Method 2: Test a Web page from another user account, another browser, and another computer loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); Use another user account, another browser, or another computer to view the Web pages that triggered a script error to determine whether the problem persists. If the script error persists, there may be a problem with the way the Web page is written. You can probably ignore the error and disable script debugging as described in method 1.

If the script error does not occur when you view the Web page from another user account, browser, or computer, the problem may be caused by files or by settings on your computer. Go to method 3 to continue to troubleshoot. Method 3: Verify that Active Scripting, ActiveX, and Java are not being blocked by Internet Explorer loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); Active scripting, ActiveX, and Java are all involved in shaping the way information displays on a Web page. If these are blocked on your computer, it may disrupt the display of the Web page. Reset the Internet Explorer security settings to make sure these are not blocked. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Security tab.
  4. Click Default Level.
  5. Click OK.
Note ActiveX controls and Java programs are turned off at the High security level in Internet Explorer.

Try to open a Web page where you previously received a scripting error. If you do not receive the error, the issue is resolved. If the issue persists, go to Method 4. Method 4: Remove all the temporary Internet-related files loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); Every time that you open a browser to view a Web page, your computer stores a local copy of that Web page in a temporary file. If the size of the temporary Internet files folder becomes too large, some display problems may occur when you open Web pages. Periodically clearing the folder might help resolve the issue.

To remove all the temporary Internet-related files from your computer when you use Internet Explorer 6, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the General tab.
  4. Under Temporary Internet files, click Settings.
  5. Click Delete Files, and then click OK.
  6. Click Delete Cookies, and then click OK.
  7. Under History, click Clear History, and then click Yes.
  8. Click OK.
To remove all the temporary Internet-related files from your computer when you use Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the General tab.
  4. Under Browsing History, click Delete, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  5. In the Delete Browsing History dialog box, under Temporary Internet Files, click Delete Files, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  6. Under Cookies, click Delete Cookies, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  7. Under History, click Delete History, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  8. Click Close, and then click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.
Try to open a Web page where you previously received a scripting error. If you do not receive the error, the issue is resolved. If the issue persists, go to method 5. Method 5: Install the latest service pack and software updates for Internet Explorer 6 or Internet Explorer 7 loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); If you do not have the latest service pack or software upgrades for Internet Explorer 6 or 7, download and install them. They may contain updates that can help resolve the issue.

Within Internet Explorer, click Tools, and Internet Options, and then delete all temporary Internet files. Close Internet Explorer.
Re-open Internet Explorer.

Is it just one person's FACEBOOK web-page that causes the problem, or does the problem occur on *ALL* FACEBOOK web-pages?

Does the problem occur *ONLY* when accessing FACEBOOK web-pages?

If you're using an older version of Internet Explorer, upgrade to IE7 or IE8.

Cannot Use Explorer


Sounds like a web blocker if your internet is still hooked up properly.

Start with a spyware cleaner like http://www.malwarebytes.org. It's free and awesome.

You can also try Mozilla Firefox as your new browser but it would be best to fix the issue.

Also, stopzilla does allow one free cleaning and it's really good.

www.stopzilla.com if you haven't used it before.

Try it and see what happens. Let them both run to completion.
