SharePoint 2013: Please enable scripts and reload this page
Issue: We have several user reporting the issue that they suddenly started getting error when they try to open the SharePoint sites
Error: You may be trying to access this site from a secured browser on the server. Please enable scripts and reload this page.
We did check the basic settings in IE of the users such as
Clearing the IE cookies, History and temporary files.
Resetting IE to advance settings and resetting the settings.
However, none of the above was seems to be working.
Searched on IE and found the MS KB which was supporting the same behavior: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2752584.
Open Internet Explorer, go to the SharePoint Server 2013 site, press Alt to reveal the Menu bar, click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
On the Security tab, click Custom level.
Scroll down to the Active scripting section, and then select Enable.
We tried this method for few users and it worked.
Now the biggest challenge we have where some users were not having admin rights. We went to further investigate this and found that there were some updated ran on the user PC which basically disabled the execution of scripting on the IE of the user.
I am not sure of the team if they have done all the prior checks before rolling out the changes which affected the GPO settings of user machine and made the said change.
We had asked the team to enable the settings again to reduce the call volume.
