Recently when I go to various websites, I will occassionally get "object error" message that will not go away. I have not added or downloaded anything new recently and I have Frontier's antivirus on my computer. I also have System Mechanic on my computer which shows no issues. Can anyone help me?

I was using Internet Explorer and it was Uniformadvantage.com. Sorry, I don't know how to take a screen shot. I use Windows XP. I never thought about doing it, but I went to the firefox browser and it works fine on there.
This could be a double post, first one didn't save.
I just resolved a similar issue on my wife's PC (she doesn't have admin rights) Turned out to be an add in in IE9 called Privacy Safeguard. Took a while to figure it out, assumed the add in was part of Symantec Internet Security.
Try to disable all the add ins in IE. In my case I couldn't disable the Privacy Safeguard, but was in Control Panel/Programs and Features (Add/Remove Programs in XP). I was able to uninstall it and then reboot. It was gone.
I don't if this method is available in XP, but in Win 7 you can go to Programs/Accessories/System Tools and start IE without any add ins. Good way to check if an add in is responsible.
Hope this helps.
