    Hi,

    I keep getting "object error" message when visiting some sites. How can I fix this from happening. I have a
    cat with heart disease and just talked to the vet and she want me to check out a certain site but can't because
    this error message keeps coming up and then I have to use task manager to exit out of it. Can you help?

    Thank you

    What's your browser?

    One of your browser add-ons may be causing the error. Try running without the add-ons. If the error doesn't reappear in that mode, you'll need to isolate the offending add-on.

    and finding it on there, what do i do to do that?:rolleyes:

    Your computer won't run in Safe Mode, only Internet Explorer (temporarily). For a browser, Safe Mode means without add-ons. Nothing hard, quite easy to do, and when closed, Internet Explorer will be reopened as normal again. Use Method 3 in the link.

    Ok, I tried it in safe mode and no problems guess I have to do this all the time or after I get an object error message huh? Is there a way to find out which add on it might be causing this, if that is why it happens?

    It'll be a process of elimination until you can find the culprit.

    You need to disable one add-on at the time, restart Internet Explorer, and browse to your website.

    If the first add-on you disable is not the culprit, re-enable it and proceed with another one.
