View Full Version : IE 8 error message - "cant creat object"

23-03-2010, 08:57 PM
I'm getting a problem with many websites with the same error
There's a yellow triangle in left corner of IE8 saying “Done, but with errors on page”

E.G. Webpage error details:

Message: Automation server can't create object
[INDENT]Line: 673

Char: 3

Code: 0



This was when I tried to download some info from the ASUS website. Also get a problem when I go to the Metservice.co.nz website, with various items never load and are not accessible – I just see a revolving petals of a timer.

I'm running Win XP sp3, and Internet Explorer 8.
Security wise I use Zone Alarm free firewall, and Eset Nods 32 antivirus.

I think this is a java problem. But what?

I've looked through the advanced setting but can't find any security setting that would explain this.
Disabling the security doesnt help either.

What am I doing wrong?

Probably something wrong with the ASUS site

Download & install Google Chrome ... see if you get the same problems. I swapped over to Chrome a few months ago because of similar problems with IE8 Don't think I'll be changing back any time soon !

Oddly enough, I'm getting the same (run forever) problem accessing MetService and Microsoft Update using XP SP3 (Home - custom built) with IE6 or IE8 and XP SP3 (Pro - Dell) IE6. Fine on Vista (Toshi). All running AVG and ZoneAlarm.

Only been a problem in the last week (possibly due to AVG updates). Going to reinstall anti-virus and see what happens.

.. found it (my problem anyway) after custom and default reinstall. Looks like latest updates to AVG on XP work properly ONLY when SafeSearch is enabled (which I coudn't do with my custom installation as I excluded the feature).

You may need to check something similar in your NOD configuration.

Having tried all sort of fixes, and checked out the windows website and tried with and without firewall, and antivirus - I still got the same error, even on a windows IE website!
So I have changed to chrome and don't have the problem any more.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
