IE Stack Overflow At Line 0 Error Prompt

Well, for no apparent reason, I get the error message prompt ie "stack overflow at line 0" multiple times when I try to browse some sites with IE(Internet Explorer) 6 & 7 browser. Not sure if it caused by the site scripting(JavaScript) or just simply one of IE's bug. It sure gets annoy for having to wait for minutes with CPU running 100% while responding to nothing but waiting for that error prompt to pop up! Well, there are few quick ways to fix the error, but by no mean guarantee to fix in the long run. However, after my tweak and hack, My IE browsing experience is back to normal so far...;)
(Update:As of 11-11-09, I haven't experience with the IE stack overflow at line 0-XXXX after the tweaks/updates/hacks below, so make sure that you follow one/more of the fixes below, it really works!)

There are couple of ways to fix the IE error prompt "stack overflow at line 0".

Go to Tools | Internet Options | Advanced.
Check the box to Disable script debugging.
Unchecked the box to Display a notification about every script error.

*Note: If you don't like to tweak around, make sure that you update your browser to the latest version!

If you are still using IE 6 or earlier versions, it is time to update to newer IE version if you still prefer IE, it is more secure, performs better and has more features!
If you fed up with IE then FireFox(FF) is definitely a better way to browse, IMO! So download Mozilla's Firefox browser now and start experiencing better online surfing!

If the above tweaks/updates still don't work, then we have to try the hard way:
