On my computer I've been constantly receiving a pop-up Webpage Error almost every time I go to a website including my email. It asks "Do you want to debug this webpage?" And then it shows me an error message for the website like "Line 14 Error." It's not always the same "Line Error."

Has anyone ever have this problem? It's constantly popping up on my computer even when on stay on the same site. It asks if I am testing the webpage and I always pick No and then you can close it. But it comes back. There's also a checkbox to pick "Don't show me this again" which I pick and still comes back. This is very annoying and I don't know how to make it stop and I'm wondering if it's a virus. I've tried unselecting or selecting different options in Internet Options but nothing seems to help it.

Can anyone give me suggestions on how to stop this "Debug Webpage error" pop-up. I would so much appreciate it. Thanks!

You might share what kind of computer you are on (Windows or Mac, etc.) and what browser you are using. That might make a difference in helping people to answer you, crystal205.

I haven't had this exact problem, but it reminds me of one I did have a few years ago. I kept getting an unwanted, strange pop-up window that I couldn't get rid of. It turned out to be a virus.

What I had may be a variation of what might be going on with you. I have W-7 w/ Webroot. In one of my email accounts I would get warnings of malicious malware if I proceeded; this happened if I tried to globally delete spam, delete spam in my inbox, and sometimes I wouldn't even have to "click" on anything. (The email account was my "junk drawer" of email accounts--an old Yahoo.)

This happened, too, once while ON a website I'm on all the time and Webroot deems safe. All of a sudden, though, WARNING.

None of the "experts" would commit whole heartedly to anything, but they kept murmuring that that email account was likely hacked. I did what I was told--and either got hacked again or they gave bad advice. What followed is a long story. Short version is I hand-wrote any addresses I needed, printed any info in emails, and actually had to DEMAND that the carrier IMMEDIATELY delete my account. (Otherwise, they leave it open for a minimum of 30 days, ironically enough to prevent spammers.)

P.S.: I ended up with trojans, malware, viruses....

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Einstein.

It's not always a virus. IE gets messed up sometimes. IE 11 actually stops other programs from running properly (some McAfee updates, and AutoCAD patches).

Try going to here:
and clicking on the Fix It button.
