SAP GUI Scripting: Script Is Running.....Help!

Hello all,

I'm new to the forums and have an SAP question problem. I'm an end user of SAP and have been using it since 2002. A couple of weeks ago when I logged into SAP I noticed a red/white icon in the lower right corner of my screen. When I hover over it it says "SAP GUI Scripting: Script Is Running". The problem is, I have never created a script. When I start working in SAP I have noticed a lot of the screens have a different format now and I get a lot of ABAP errors.

After doing some research I found under "Customize Local Layout", "Options" I can uncheck the box "Enable Scripting". I click "Apply" and "OK". Now the red/white icon goes away in the lower right corner and all my screens go back to normal with no ABAP errors.

The problem now is that every minute or two I get a pop up window that says "Scripting support is disabled by the user".

Has anyone else had this problem?

1. I've never created a script. Why is one running now?

2. Is there a way to stop the pop up message "Scripting support is disabled...." if I uncheck "Enable Scripting"?

Thanks for any feedback

    Just to add some insight......

    This is what a window looks like with scripts running and where I get errors....

    This is what it looks like when I turn scripting off. This is how it should look and I get no errors.....

      Woohoo!!!! I figured it out and fixed it!

      There was a program called passlogix installed on my computer. It had an app trying to auto log in to SAP for me. I noticed V-GO SSO running in my task manager processes. I stopped the process and the SAP script stopped. So I did a little research on the app and all it does is automatically log you in to software you use frequently. I uninstalled the entire program and everything is perfect now.
