        Microsoft says that customers can now disable JScript (JScript.dll) execution in Internet Explorer 11 after installing the Windows October 2020 monthly security updates.

        my bolding
        good πŸ™‚
        How to do it?

        Additionally, before toggling off IE JScript execution on Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 versions 1507 up to 1709, it must be enabled using an Internet feature control key β€” instructions on how to configure such a key are available here.

        To manually toggle off IE JScript execution in Internet Explorer for Internet Zone and Restricted Sites Zone, you need to go through the following procedure:

        Click Start, click Run, type regedt32 or regedit, and then click Ok.
        To disable JScript execution in Internet Zone, locate the following registry subkey in Registry Editor:

        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3\140D

        To disable JScript execution in Restricted Sites Zone, locate the following registry subkey in Registry Editor:

        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\4\140D
        Right-click the appropriate registry subkey, and then click Modify.
        In the Edit DWORD (32-bit) Value dialog box, type 3.
        Click OK, and then restart Internet Explorer.

        .more info within the article linked..

        I’d also like to add: Export the original key before doing anything, that way, if you should encounter issues with programs, you can re-aaply the original regfile.
