TypeError: this.oRoot.enable is not a function

This is popping up when I befor I open my browser,in a pop up box under the heading JAVA SCRIPT EXE. What is it, how do I get rid of it?

Chosen solution

For me this came from disabling but not uninstalling McAfee site adviser. Completely uninstalled site adviser and the problem completely went away. I had disabled site adviser before, but it seems after a McAfee update it was back and then disabling it again caused this issue.

Go to "uninstall a program" or "add/remove programs" in control panel. Find McAfee in your list (McAfee total protection for me). Click it and then click "Uninstall/Change" (right there in XP, up above in Vista or 7). I don't remember exactly what you see after that, but at one screen I was given the choice to uninstall the McAfee total protection and/or the Site Adviser. You can just check the Site Adviser and just uninstall the Site Adviser while retaining the rest of the McAfee protection.

Good luck!

I did it in my computer, but I can not uninstall the Site Advisor alone. I need to uninstsll the the total McAfee plus. What should I do?

But another user in my computer they do not have this problem. If I try to use IE or Chrome etc , I can not find this problem. I use firefox since 2006 and do not want to change another one. What should I do?

By the way I have this problem after I update Firefox6 3 weeks ago and always allow 1 plugin work. The other user in this computer they just allow firefox plugin working 1 times.

It will pop out if I disable the siteadivsor.

many thanks

What if you don't have McAfee? I don't have that so is there another way to fix the problem?

I've been fighting this problem for a while and have found a new solution. Initially the disable/restart/enable method worked, but more recently the error would occur any time that McAfee Site Advisor was enabled. I uninstalled Site Advisor, rebooted the PC, then re-installed Site Advisor from the McAfee Total Protection "console". The error message no longer appears. I can't guarantee that this will work for everyone, but even if you have another version of McAfee installed, give it a try, and good luck.
