It doesn't give me a link when I upload it.

Basically it says.

An error has occured in the script on this page.

Line: 1344
Char: 1
Error: Unspecified error.
Code: 0
URL: res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\shdoclc.dll/preview.dlg

Do you want to continue to run scripts on this page?

Is the error in the screenshot from the problem you opened this question for, or was it an error you got when trying to upload the screenshot?  Sorry, but I'm not clear on which.

Sorry, I lost track of this question for a bit.  Did this error begin after loading IE7 or another browser?  Outlook uses IE to render its printouts.

Try registering OLE32.dll (regsvr32 C:\windows or winnt\system32\ole32.dll)

Welcome to DLL hell.  OLE32.dll is a COM library that contains core "object linking and embedding" functions.  Either the computers have multiple versions of this DLL and the wrong one, probably an older version, got registered.  It might be the result of having installed some other piece of software that registered its own copy of OLE32.  You can search the computer for that filename and see if other copies exist.  If it's not an issue of multiple copies, then something is causing the component registration (i.e. entry in the registry) to be lost or overwritten.
