Internet Explorer Runtime Error Do you Wish to Debug?

Hi, for several months I lived with an extremely unconfortable bug.
On some pages IE will display an alert dialog indicating 

A Runtime Error has occurred.
Do you wish to Debug?
Line: blablabla
Error: blablalba

 Well finally I looked in google and found this:

So if anybody had to live with this bug like me, I hope this helps him

Here is a valuable comment I received. So I'm adding it so it will help somebody else.

I was plagued by the "Runtime error - do you wish to debug?" problem for months
and finally resolved it last night, after testing everything else in the MS knowledgebase
to no avail (
The problem disappeared instantly after a tip-off elsewhere to install & run SpyBot. (Looks like my SpywareBlaster 4.1 failed me there.)
So it wasn't:
my IE 7 settings (Disable script debugging),
operating system (XP Pro SP3),
firewall (Comodo Pro),
antivirus (Avast!) or
scripting engine (WindowsScript 5.7) - just Spyware


IE7 Print shrink to fit problem

IE7 has an interesting bug...
Someone decided to change the printing default
to "Shrink to Fit".This is supposed to be good
because it will make printing of web pages better
but it affects several applications develop for
IE, for example if you are using the Web Access
to your Exchange server, or if you have an application
that prints on a page that is not a letter size page

Well a guy from a forum found an excellent solution.

The only problem is that he refers a hot fix,
but if you have problems with that hotfix, then
do the following:

1. Go to

2. Make sure you have the following updates:

** Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP (KB938127)
** Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP (KB937143)

And then run the following in the command prompt:
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_STF_Scale_Min" /v iexplore.exe /t REG_DWORD /d 100 /f
