How to remove JavaScript Application error syntax error popup?

Hello, my university's IT department recently updated my laptop to Java 7, and also installed IE8. Since that time, I have constant pop-ups from (JavaScript Application) which state "Error: Syntax Error". There is a yellow triangle containing an exclamation point to the left of the message. It requires from two to eight clicks to make each pop-up go away, and it comes back with every new screen. My IT contacts are unable to remove it. I used Firefox as my browser.

I would greatly appreciate knowing a solution or a place to go for help. Thanks! Li

    Try using firebug error console to find the actual reason of error, might be script is breaking at some point causing error popup.
    If this not work out then try disabling your add-ons , this may also cause errors due to incompability.

    If your school's IT department's requirements have caused you issues, then you need to to your school's IT department for solutions.
