Default function SymError() problem

well im not sure where to post this ..

anyway ive a dhtml menu being loaded using the following tags

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
var navVer = navigator.appVersion;
if(navVer.substr(0,3) >= 4)
if((navigator.appName=='Netscape') && (parseInt(navigator.appVersion)==4))
document.write("<"+"script language='JavaScript' type='text/javascript' src='scripts/nsmenu.js'><\/script\>");
document.write("<"+"script language='JavaScript' type='text/javascript' src='scripts/iemenu.js'><\/script\>");

but it does not run in my asp,html pages if it run friom my local server .. but works fine if i simply open the html file directly in the browser.

when i checked the source of the runtime asp & html i did notice this code placed right above my script tags of js.

<script language="JavaScript">

function SymError()
  return true;

window.onerror = SymError;

var SymRealWinOpen = window.open;

function SymWinOpen(url, name, attributes)
  return (new Object());

window.open = SymWinOpen;


and a closing sequence of similiar nature at the end of the page.

Is it b'coz of this that my dhtml menus dont work. if yes how do i get rid of this auto placing javascripts. i guess (im not sure) it started after i installed the .Net SDks ..

The stuff about SymError is added by the Anti ad software from Norton Internet Security.

If you disable that feature, or your entire firewall, you'll notice that the code disappears. It's then much easier to debug a page, because errors are no longer hidden....
