Now when you go to the link you will discover the error messages have nothing to do with Internet Explorer. The error messages in question are in fact HTTP Errors you will get if something doesn’t go the way it’s meant too. There are only two error codes that even relate to Internet Explorer. Why lump all the HTTP error codes with Internet Explorer? Simple really they’re Windows fan boys who use MSIE browsers and think the errors they received are specific to the browser. Well they should know better after all they have been Windows Fan boys for so long. They should know the difference between an HTTP error & an MSIE script error.

52 Runtime Error:
This is a “bad file name or number” error in JavaScript. It means that the script cannot find a file it is looking for (web-page, course component) and is most likely a connectivity problem. Try to clear your temporary internet files which should resolve any further problems… If this does not then speak with the website administrator as there may be a problem with the websites server.

Runtime Error:
(The information in this solution applies to: Internet Explorer 5.5 (SP1) 95 / 98 / 98 Second Edition / NT4.0 / 2000). When you attempt to browse to various websites, you may receive an error message similar to the following ‘A runtime error has occurred. Do you wish to debug? Line number Error: Permission Denied.’
This can occur if you upgrade to IE 5.5 (SP1). The upgrade enables the script-debugging and script-error-notification options. (Note: Because there are several versions of Windows, the following steps may be different on your computer. If they are, please consult your product documentation to complete these steps:)
To resolve this issue, disable the script-debugging and script-error-notification options. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Start Internet Explorer.
2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
3. Click the Advanced tab .
4. Click to select the Disable script debugging check box .
5. Click to clear the Display a notification about every script error check box .
6. Click Apply, and then click OK.
Fortunately this is a very rare Internet Explorer Error message…
