Recently when I have been starting up my PC which is using XP Home, I get the following popup error every time:

Internet Explorer Script Error:

An Error has occurred in the script on this page.

Line: 277
Char: 2
Error: ActiveX component can't create object: 'Scripting.Dictonary'
Code: 0
URL: mcp://C:\PROGRA~1
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

Everything seems to be working fine but I dont know why this is happening. No internet explorer is active when windows startsup.

Can anyone tell me what this error means and/or how to get rid of it?

    Hello jflah =)

    >> URL: mcp://C:\PROGRA~1\\agent\RegWizUI.dll::default.htm

    See this line, its related to Mcafee.... means Mcafee processes are starting at startup and one fo them is thrwoing this error..... and if everythng else is working fine on your system, and its just Mcafee that is givign this error, then i think your should try uninstalling and reinstalling it :)
