    IE 7 or Firefox.


    Ive tried going through tools-->IE options--> Programs: and disabling java but JS still runs.

    Well some of the active content in IE is ran via activex.
    So you would have to shut activex off as well.

    In Firefox, you should be able to shut it down completely by turning off java script in tools>options>content.

    You thinking adware popups?

    I meant to ask about that, but it was late when I was making my post.

    Any self-respecting adware won't rely on the browser to show ads.

    If he just wants to get rid of those stupid banner ads on websites, he can install FireFox and use the AdBlock plugin.

    Other than that, I have no idea why he'd want to turn off scripting, short of maybe paranoia, which is why I asked for his reason.

    One of the sites i visit has code that that creates a scrolling list in a box. I guess its linked to another server (just guessing here) for the content of that list. Whenever I hit that site from work our proxy always ask for my user name and password. When i kill JS from running it does away with the annoyance. Again thanks for the help
