Fix 1 – Reset Internet Explorer Settings
The OneDrive app on Windows uses the same internet connection settings as Internet Explorer on your computer, which means that any corrupted or incorrectly configured settings in IE will cause OneDrive to malfunction. Resetting your IE will make the script error go away.
1. Open Run (Windows + R) and type inetcpl.cpl to open Internet Properties.
2. Navigate to the Advanced tab. Click on the Reset button.
3. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, check the option Delete Personal Settings and then click on the Reset button.
4. Once IE settings have been restored to their default values, click on Close and then on OK.
5. Restart your computer. Launch OneDrive and check if the script error is resolved.
If resetting the IE settings to default did not help, you need to follow the steps below:
1. Open Internet Properties as mentioned in Step 1 above.
3. Go to the Advanced tab.
4. Click on Restore advanced settings… button.
5. Follow the on-screen instructions to restore Internet Explorer’s advanced settings, checking the boxes to delete ALL settings.
Restart your PC and check if the OneDrive script error problem is fixed.
