VB6: Web Browser Control run-time error "-2"

I am using a Web Browser control in VB6, and it consistently gives me a Run-time error with an error number that is always negative, small, and even (-2, -4, -6, etc.).  Even though I have placed an ON ERROR directive in every routine involving the browser, I consistently get this Run-time error without the opportunity to capture the error and debug the code: the dialog box gives me only an OK and Help button: pressing Help does absolutely nothing; and pressing OK terminates the program.  Using the Web Browser is the place and time that I experience this peculiar behavior, and it happens with great consistency.  
I am more than willing to share more information and, if ncessary, upload the program on EE's web site for perusal.  For my first pass, I'll simply ask if any of you have ever encountered this error before, and what you've done.
Thanks, ~Peter Ferber
